Life in hectic Hong Kong can be frustrating at the best of times. But when you’ve got a baby on the way, you’re carrying precious cargo and want to ensure that you’ve found the best place to welcome your baby into the world. With private healthcare options abounding, narrowing down your search is easier said than done. Just a short distance from the city centre, the Obstetrics services at Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital could prove the perfect choice for you and your family.
The patient-centric facility at Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital boasts high-quality meals, peaceful surroundings, and competitive pricing, with a whole host of complimentary add-ons thrown in for good measure. Located just around the corner from the new Ocean Park MTR station, the hospital operates a convenient three-minute shuttle service to the station at regular intervals.
Fetal heartbeats are continuously monitored using centralised surveillance by a cardiotocography system, with readings sent to the nurses at a remote viewing station. Once a baby has been welcomed into the world, they are in safe hands, as our Nursery is equipped with a Baby-tag system and the area is also covered by a 24-hour CCTV system.
To help cherish the moments that matter, Gleneagles promotes a skin-to-skin service for newborns, helping to nurture new relationships, aid the newborn’s feelings of security, and strengthen the relationship between mother and child. With a 24-hour rooming service and lactation support, there are no limits to the early-stage bonding between mother and child.
With an emphasis on intimacy, images of hospital wards with endless beds side by side can be quickly cast aside. Standard rooms here comprise just two beds. Those looking to share the experience with their loved ones can opt for the Family Suite, which even includes a living room.
If you thought this was an experience for mother and child alone, think again. Gleneagles caters for the whole family, offering free parking to new parents, and preparing a birthday cake to celebrate this special occasion with family and friends. The hospital provides a complimentary door to door transportation service (excluding the Outlying Islands), complete with complimentary gifts upon your discharge from hospital. And for the more traditional parents, confinement practice with ginger water for body cleansing and external use is available.
Before your exciting journey begins, Gleneagles offers informative and interactive antenatal classes to support you and your partner with newborn care. All classes are hosted by designated professionals, including obstetricians, midwives, physiotherapists, lactation consultants, anaesthetists and dieticians.
Normal delivery packages are inclusive of a three-day, two-night stay, while caesarean section packages typically include a five-day, four-night stay. Hospital fee packages start from just HK$19,800.
