And latching on is not as easy as it seems...
Hi meow mummy, like kibin mentioned, it's free to consult the lactation consultant during your stay. Normally only one or two will b gng around so grab hold of her n ask her to guide you through breastfeeding. Latching is indeed not easy. I'm too, totally clueless during my first pregnancy. But dont't worry. The nurse who bring you your baby will guide you through too. Some baby will learn to latch on faster n some may need more training. Like my baby boy. Tried for 2 day before he could latch on properly.

Hello Everyone !
I am so so so happy to learn that my wife is expecting I can't wait to give her a big hug when she returns from her trip.
After reading the Forum posts, we have decided to engage the service of Dr Esther Ng from Mount Alvernia.
Many have advised that it is important to having a caring and patient Gynae, and I hope Dr Esther would be a good choice for us
My younger sister delivered 2 cute kids at Mount Alvernia, and this helped our decision.
And now, I am looking forward to seeing the Gynae on Monday 13 May 2013
We are still guessing my wife's pregnancy week ...
Hi mummies, I just got an info from my friend who gave birth recently at mount a. When she was admitted to e hospital, they only need your credit card/debit card as a deposit. She did not pay anything after she discharge cus e bill will send it to her house. Anyone can clarify if this is true?
Hi Paigepaige,Originally Posted by Paigepaige:782421
Yes when I was admitted there last Oct they only took my hubby's credit card details and we have express checkout when I was discharged. They will only charge the bill to the credit card upon final bill whereby they will send a copy to your house also.
Hi Paigepaige, that's right. Like junebug 86 had mentioned, no cash required. Only need credit card for payment. Mt A will send you the final bill about 2 weeks later
Just to share, i just delivered about 3 months back. emergency c-sect, hence 4D3N stay. Bill amounts to about 4k cash for 2 bedded after deducting medisave. The amount included my gynae fee. We did an express check out too and bill was sent to us few weeks later with the charges billed to credit card and therefore no payment was needed.
Nurses are very helpful and attentive and they are a great help if you want to learn how to latch on the baby for breast feeding.
Pumps are also available for rental ($20) if you need to pump due to engorgement. Not advisible to bring your own as you will need to steralise the pumps before use, unless you intend to lug your steraliser along.
Hope the above helps!
point to note is if you are going for natural delivery, remember to wear pants or jeans as it can be very cold waiting for your wife to deliver.. you might need a jacket also..
Last year, Oct when i went to visit my friend in Mount Alvernia, the place is under renovation, is it still under renovation now?
Yes it is still under renov. Block B is done. Now they are dng the multi-story car park.
Yes you can call them to check. But I think there shouldn't be any problems because I think they just need a valid card to bill the charges.Originally Posted by Paigepaige:782731
May I ask some questions about the hospital bill? Reading the Mount Alvernia Package, a Cae Section with GA will cost $2,866 (2 bedder), and medisave allowable is $3,500. how come my cousin say that she paid $3,200 cash for her hospital final bill ?? I need to estimate how much cash to reserve for my first delivery at Mount Alvervia. Many thanks ...
