If it is normal delivery w/ no complications, midwives are more experienced and can do the job better then the doc. The doc no value add.
But if got complication, then another story.
That's true, I count my lucky stars I had an uneventful (boring) pregnancy and delivery. I was surprised that the midwives were the ones to get me to start the pushing, I thought the gynae would do it. Very grateful to the staff at Mt A though, cannot recommend Mt A enough.

complications to the mother or kids if advised or detected by the specialist, best is still to go back to KKH

I got an ex-colleague, due to advice from her gyne, go back to KKH for delivery. in the end, took epidural 3 times, for it to be effective
EPIDURAL 3 TIMES????!!!!

Gleneagles of course. Whether can afford or not is another issue.

I don't know. I didn't use painkillers for either of my deliveries but I didn't deliver in water. Just seems kind of weird to me..
my wife epidural 1 time

wa this part hor tmc lose to kkh liao...

cause the epidural only kkh have..

so the doc also must draw from kkh...

then take a longer time for epidural to reach my wife...

she already pain cannot liao still must wait

kkh good cause if need epidural can get it straight from kkh no need travel back and forth for it

Huh???? What if the kid pops out before the epidural gets there? Do you still get charged for it?

Not very time efficient leh..

BTW, even if your child is healthy etc........a lot also depends on the spec's experience.

4.01kg baby, i can tell you....if the doc asked you to go natural, i salute you.

Elective LCSC already ordered in 3rd trimester, ultrasound already know cannot do natural, end up more pain with natural and then kena emergency LSCS then sama sama. All these boils down to experience and professionalism of the doc.


Another story is that some private spec in some shopping centre cannot see the gestational sac via the tummy ultrasound and the transvaginal ultrasound (chemically is already positive coz HGC hormone levels already all there). KNS, the doc said might be chemical pregnancy, HGC levels raised due to fertilisation but no gestational sac latched onto the womb or already dropped out etc.
Ended up go Mount E spec the next day coz could not sleep at night, within 1 min asked me to go in, showed me......there, brudder, your gestational sac. Brudder, you pro sia......this "GS" term you also know.
(can't be helped).

On Labour Day it happened to fall on a gynae appointment day, was I think 10+ or 11+am appointment, then The Other Half told the gynae and he ordered to go up to the delivery ward, by that time was around 12+ or so ... and my daughter was born 4+pm. Natural no epidural only laughing gas ... I can't imagine those of y'all labour 12 hours or more
