Hi mummies, anyone tried both Thomson and Mt A?
Can advise any major diff btw this 2?
have actually decided to deliver at thomson, but saw so many mummies thumbs up for mt A.. seems like mt A is cheaper and better..
Both of our babies are delivered in Thomson Medical Center. We totally enjoyed the whole process and stay there especially with the new rooms.
I think it is better for you to visit both hospitals before making any decision.
i had went for thomson hospital tour on e same day i went for my detailed scan 2 weeks ago..
no quite bad, place wise is quite small, so i guess is rather easy to find your way around there.. wun be afraid to get lost..
so i guess i need to tour mount A soon..
I went for the Thomson tour around 3 weeks ago...
let me try to recall the freebies..
hmm.. 2 packs sample of Anmum-original & chocolate one each, baby teething toy, first month brouchure, list of maternity packages for your stay there-e pricing and amount of CPF claimable, 2 pcs of breast pads, come with details for breastfeeding, gohnson's baby bedtime lotion & bedtime bath-one sample pack each..
i think that's all i can remember..
but is actually based on luck when we go for hospital tours..
coz if the room is occupied, then you only get to see pictures..
but i managed to view all room types that time!
how do we arrange for a tour? do we call up the hospital to book or i can simply include that in when i go for my detailed scan?
Thomson Medical hospital just go to counter & ask the staff. The staff will ask you to fill in the form & give you the freebie & wait there. just rem go before 11a.m for morning session & 2p.m for afternoon session. For sat they only have the morning session. They very puncture for the tour... Hope it help you...
why raffles sooo lousy??? i did not get any freebies and the tour was sooo rush and the "tour guide" was constantly on the hp!!! aiyo really regret goin raffles now..... n i dont know y the nursery at raffles is 24/7 shutter down cannot see inside n God knows how the babies are treated inside... ever once managed to peek inside like very shorthanded n baby like roughly handled..
but my gynae only deliver at raffles thts y initially i had wanted Mount A... so now boh pian .. anyway i sign up package etc all so too late.. hopefully it will turn out alright
Yah the baby ward is transparent but there is a curtain on the other side... when I went for my tour, the curtain was drawn but they seem happy to open it when asked. Mt A also encourage mummy to spend more time with baby and if the mummy wants they can even have the baby over night by their bed.
Mount A really can have baby overnight by my side even if its 4 bedded?
during the Thomson Medical Center tour i went, the lady mention baby can only sleep with you for 1 bedded onwards, for 2 bedded and 4 bedded, baby hav to be at nursery..
any mums can advise whether this is strictly followed in Thomson? or sumtime they close one eye ?
