Maternity care at Matilda

Special maternity care package – outbreak response 2022  is NOW available till 30 April 2022, for those who want to transfer from public hospitals to get more support from us and their partner.

Matilda is widely respected for our expertise in obstetrics and offers a complete range of maternity services including antenatal care, classes, hospital care for delivery, and support at home with your new baby. Our quality research-based maternity care is provided in a friendly environment with experts sensitive to your healthcare needs. Both new and experienced parents alike appreciate our open, modern approach.

Many of the costs are predetermined, providing you peace of mind for everything you and your baby might normally require during your stay. 

Your maternity journey starts with antenatal care.  You can choose your own obstetrician, or join the Matilda antenatal care in which we will arrange a designated obstetrician to care for you throughout your pregnancy and help you plan for your admission to hospital.  

If you have been using Matilda’s antenatal care and would like to extend the care to delivery with the same obstetrician, our team can help you with the booking for giving birth with us. If you have been looked after by your chosen obstetrician, the doctor’s clinic can help you with the booking for your maternity stay at Matilda.

Upon returning home with your baby, you will need to visit your obstetrician or our designated obstetrician for wound assessment and postnatal check. Our community midwife can visit you at home to ensure the wellbeing of you and your baby, as well as to provide you support on breastfeeding. You can also sign up with the childhood vaccination packages that give you the flexibility to add specific vaccines.  

Your Parenthood Journey

The Matilda team understands that everyone’s needs are unique and aim to guide you through the different stages of care. Should you have any questions, please contact our dedicated patient service team by calling, whatsapp or telegram +852 6016 1680

 







Antenatal care

Doctor appointments for antenatal checkup and scans are very important once you get pregnant. You can choose your obstetrician, or sign up for our antenatal care to regularly monitor the well-being of you and your baby.

Starting from week 6 – 8 of your pregnancy, the Patient Service Team together with experienced healthcare professionals will look after you and guide you to the special journey into parenthood.

Based on international guidelines, the schedule includes 14 designated specialist consultations. It is built with price transparency in mind and is based on a pay-as-you-go system. These designated obstetricians can extend care for your delivery and during the postnatal period.  By joining our antenatal care and giving birth with us, you can enjoy our fixed-priced hospital and doctor packages.

Learn about our antenatal care schedule and the fixed-priced hospital and doctor packages.

If you have maternity insurance coverage for antenatal care you should be able to pay and claim, please find out your coverage details before admission. We have been recognised as a select provider for maternity care with some insurers and have specific programmes in place, our dedicated Patient Service Team can give you more information.

  • Booking

    A booking is required for your maternity stay at Matilda. Your obstetrician will book  with us and share important information about your pregnancy and history. If you are using the Matilda’s antenatal care, we can book for you for giving birth with us.

    Once we receive the booking we will send you a confirmation. It is best that the booking process is completed as early as possible as there are a limited number of rooms. This also ensures that there is plenty of time for you to complete classes, attend the information session and  facilitate a smooth admission. Check-in online here once you have received our confirmation.

    We encourage you to draw up a birth plan, please send this to our maternity department by email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or fax (2849 6246) before your admission so we are aware of your special requests. On admission, the maternity team will discuss your preferences on labour to make the experience as fulfilling as possible.

    We make every effort to provide you with your choice of room, but are not able to guarantee the type until the day you are admitted. There is no exact science in predicting due dates– babies set their own programme.

    If your booked room type is not available, you may choose a different available room. The published room category rate will apply.








Delivery

 

Maternity at Matilda is characterised by quality service, friendly people, luxurious rooms and a beautiful environment.

Parent-baby friendly

We believe in a parent-baby friendly approach to maternity and welcome the presence of partners during the big event. You are encouraged to express your preferences in delivery as you prepare for a new member to your family.

Early bonding

Whether in a delivery room or the clinical setting of an operating theatre we encourage early parent-baby bonding. By creating a peaceful and unique atmosphere where parents set the mood by choosing background music, both parents are able to be part of the birthing process and watch the birth of their baby.

It is a special emotional moment when you hold your baby close for the first time, right after birth. Skin-to-skin contact helps regulate the baby's body temperature and heart rate, though above all it initiates bonding and promotes successful breastfeeding.

At Matilda, we offer support to you in many different ways:

  • Personalised care
  • Partner, close relative or friend accompanying labour
  • Choice of alternative methods of pain relief, such as mobilization, birth ball, warm pad, music and water bath
  • Walking epidurals, Entonox
  • Ratio of one midwife to one mother in active labour and during delivery
  • Partner present at delivery and for caesarean section under epidural (Partners are not encouraged to stay with you should a general anaesthesia be required)
  • Partner may cut the baby's cord
  • A breastfeeding-friendly atmosphere with help from certified lactation consultants
  • Early bonding for normal deliveries and caesarean sections
  • Skin to skin contact with baby at birth in a delivery room or operating room
  • Baby rooms-in with mother in shared and private rooms
  • Postnatal midwifery home visits
