For the best start in life

Maternity at Matilda is characterised by quality service, friendly people, luxurious rooms and a beautiful environment. We also provide peace-of-mind with predetermined costs for everything you and your baby might normally require  during your stay.

  • Doctors and cover

    During your pregnancy please take time to discuss with your obstetrician your choice of paediatrician and anaesthetist. This will enable your obstetrician to ensure their availability for routine and emergency care during your delivery and stay with us.

    In the rare event that your obstetrician or paediatrician is unavailable, or there is an immediate need that may affect the wellbeing of you or your baby, the hospital has 24 emergency cover for obstetrics and paediatrics.

  • Baby’s safety

    For security reasons the nursery door is locked at all times and only parents are given the access right. A member of staff is stationed in the nursery and the area is covered by 24 hour CCTV.

    To prevent accidents please transport your baby in the cot between your room and the nursery.

    Should your baby need to be transferred to a public hospital, the government ambulance service may charge a transportation fee.

    All visitors must report to the nursing station on arrival to confirm your room number and ensure the visit is convenient for you.

    Your own children and other children over the age of 12 are allowed to visit, though there may be times when visiting is limited.

  • Maternity team

    Matilda’s multilingual midwives and obstetric nurses assist with the delivery of around a thousand babies a year. They appreciate every delivery is unique and every baby is special and are there for you with expert advice and care.

    We encourage continuing education and our midwives take up training in internationally recognised courses such as Advanced Life Support Obstetrics (ALSO) and the American Academy of Pediatrics Neonatal Resuscitation Programme (NRP).

    Midwives will help you with your individual needs and offer support to women who choose natural childbirth. Partners are welcome to be present at the delivery.

  • Booking

    We need your obstetrician to book your maternity stay because they will share important information about your pregnancy and history.

    Your obstetrician should book your room as far in advance as possible and we will send you confirmation once we have received your booking.

    Check-in online hereafter you received our confirmation.

    If you wish to draw up a birth plan, please send or fax (2849 6246) it to our maternity department before your admission so we are aware of your special requests.

    We make every effort to provide you with your choice of room, but can’t 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.

  • Antenatal courses

    During several sessions our team of healthcare professionals share insights into the later stages of pregnancy and becoming a parent.

    The course includes practical information and useful suggestions for pregnancy, the birthing process and caring for newborns.

    The course is suitable for ladies who have reached at least 28 weeks of pregnancy. Partners are welcome to join too.

    The friendly sessions include a discussion time. You’re encouraged to prepare questions. No question is too trivial – your concerns may be shared by others.

    Classes are conducted in English and Japanese.
