    Delivered my #1 and #2 at Mt A. My #2 was normal w/o epi. Just delivered my #3 via normal w/o epi at TMC in Jan. My experience and stay with MT A wad a pleasant one for both my 2 stay there. The nurses were friendly and professional. The wards are nice even for 4 bedded. Unlike TMC. Stayed in 2 bedded and the ward was rather old and the air condition wasnt really working. Couldn't feel the
    air Conditioning though I set it at 18 degree. In the end, I decided to discharge 1 day earlier. My stay at TMC wasn't a pleasant one. Nt only was the ward nt up to expectation, my encounter with the security guard, the admin personnel and the mid wives at TMC wasnt good too. Regretted not choosing Mt A for my #3.

    I delivered at mt A last Dec...assisted (vacuum) with epi. Took the single deluxe room, as they were out of the normal single rooms.
    Bill was about 4k+ (including doctor's fees), deducted via medisave and paid 2k+ cash.

    The nurses were very caring and attentive...overall had a very good stay there. Food was good too...was fed non stop, i felt lol

    I delivered last Oct at mt A. Normal delivery with epi ajd stayed for 3D2N in single deluxe room. Cash payment is 4k plus almost 5k including gynae fees. Service was good, the nurses are friendly and helpful however the downside was the carpark.

    there are lactation consultants in mount A that can help you latch on when you breastfeed your baby.. not sure if other hospitals have that service also...

    Mt A is under massive renovation now, so now the car park is a prob, but they are offering valet parking so shouldn't be an issue.
    I went the hospital tour last week, some of the wards are quite old and very diff from the pics on their website. But that's not the main concern also la.. haha
    going to choose single room.

    My friend went there and was told to park her car at McRitchie Reservoir... so the parking situation could be rather bad....
