My wife 33 weeks now, the baby 1.5kg only.

Private doctor said better to transfer to NUH or KKH. Which one better?
1. SGH
2. Look for Prof Tan Hak Koon. The head of the O&G department.
3. Not many people know that you can deliver babies at SGH and thus the queue to see your gynae is shorter.
4. KKH is under the oversight of SGH which is a main hospital.
5. As Prof Tan told my wife and myself,if the baby is healthy,you can give birth in any hospital as it's the same.However, if you expect complications, it's better to do it in SGH as the operation theatre is just next door and there is no need for the baby to be transferred to KKH or SGH from other hospitals.
6. My 2 kids were delivered by him especially the first one whose heart beat was only half during the early ultrasounds but she is a big healthy bubbly girl now.

Thought i will clear up the misconception. Size of the baby DOES NOT depend on the type of birth example natural. Yes you can push a 4kg baby out naturally. Natural birth risk is much much lower than C-sec risk.
(unless u saying 5kg and above kind. oh please)

Though some ladies pelvis may be small but its usually very low percentage.

My 4th was born out at 3.87kg naturally without painkiller/drugs or cutting. I did have a bit of tear . My first was 3.75kg born at 37wks naturally without painkiller too except for laughing gas which was forced on me as i struggled to push away. Gynae did comment he didnt understand why baby was so big when husband and i were small sized. Esp even when i was losing weight, my babies were on the bigger side.

I didnt have good experience with TMC but thats 8-6yrs back thing, they kept forcing formula and extremely not pro natural birth. The nurses also were rude and forceful.(maybe cause i was a teenage mum)

On the other hand KKH midwives were marvelous. I had a natural birth there without keep psycho me to take pain killer or giving me face colour etc. They were very professional, kind and sweet

This is useful information. Thank you.

Of coz i am not saying that elective LSCS is > natural.....

In theory that's supposed to be the case (I have read about it too), but to cut a long story short that's not really in my 2nd one case, there are many other nitty gritty things to take note of in a complicated-based pregnancy/delivery (even though in my case, all ended well, but everything was based on complicated procedures and "thinking").

My baby has other risks upon delivery too. It wouldn't help if we'd just introduce more risks should the natural birth go into complications and add onto it.......makes no sense....when the doc already knows that it'd be big.


The risk of elective LSCS is not very high if handled properly and with experience, well i mean it could be that the spec also don't wanna self-pawn? LOL.
The Head of ob/gyn already said "baby confirm big, when come out you'll see". He was actually more concerned about my wife wanting to go natural.....

Experience plays a large part. I mean...heck, that's the same with GPs as well, dentists....many other areas.

If not, we would not have changed from Mount E to SGH already. Backside not so itchy....

If u want to go kkh don't delay
Tiagong if their beds full etc they will give priority to their own patients which is fair right
So u Don't take own sweet time if yr gynae ask u find another one

I really don't get why ppl must deliver at private hospitals when they are not equipped to handle complications.
Assuming they were all priced the same, KK or SGH would be the first choice. However because its cheaper, people look elsewhere..
