I am no medical expert- but the delivery experience is disappointing and worrying for us as first time parents. 1. Admitted at midnight based on Gynae's recommendation after 2cm dilation (38 weeks 0 days) was assessed in the morning routine check-up. Clinic says contractions are regular, but wife could not feel them. Dilation was still 2cm when we checked in as per gynae instructions around midnight. Wife was not feeling any contractions. No waterbag burst, No bloody show. Thomson did not explain to us anything and proceeded to induce over 16-17 hrs, before the gynae asked us to go for emergency c-Sect. 2. Gynae consistently estimated a median size baby during our routine visits and estimated birth weight of 3.1kg in the morning. Baby was born low weight (i.e <2.5kg). Does not seem to me (from 1&2) that the baby was ready to come out. We were informed that there are higher risk associated w low weight babies, which further made us worried. No explanation given to us by anyone. 3. Total hospital bill over the 3 days was more than $20k (This also includes a $4k doc fee (only) for removing a small cyst which the gynae said she found, and sought permission to remove without stating price, when stitching up. Cyst eventually turned out not to be an issue after microscopic test) 4. Cryoviva sales agent all around Thomson (including the clinic areas) selling their cord blood packages, which annoys me. Sales content is different from what u hear from Singapore Cord Blood Bank. No more Thomson for me again.

Very slow service, not nearly as responsive as other hospitals. They have far more patients than they have capacity for. Expect to wait at least an hour for your queue number to be called. UPDATE: the staff has apologized for the long delay and has promised to do better in future. FURTHER UPDATE: If you are taking the shuttle from Novena MRT, you must watch for the shuttle like a hawk and push your way in as soon as the doors open. It won't be easy to spot the shuttle, because it will be plastered with advertisements for cord blood freezing, supplements, etc. The word "Thomson" will probably be written somewhere in tiny text. If you see a shuttle for Cryoviva, that's probably the Thomson shuttle. As soon as the doors open you must force your way on, lest the driver close the door in your face, as he did to my pregnant wife. Apparently he is eager to finish his route so he can take a smoking break, so he won't always let all the passengers on before driving away.

Very slow service, take ages to attend to my wife after she gave birth. Nurses are not helpful in briefing my wife the dos and don’ts after a cesarean procedure. Nonetheless, the nurses in the observation room are very professional and polite.

For the childbirth part, Wards have barely any natural light. The place is cold and the doors do not have proper isolation. Too may ppl come in and out of the mother s room when all she needs is some rest... THE BABY : took my baby to the pediatric clinic for vaccination and we had to wait close to 2 Hours!!- In Ac room with other 20 sick children. She got the flu twice! I' ve had it. I appreciate the doctor, but they need to implement an sms service like sgh or any other clinic and allow parents to go out with their kids and come back few minutes before their turn. Awful experience.. If it weren't for the nurses i' d give it 1 star.. The hospital needs upgrading.

One of the most affordable place to deliver your baby, nurses are good and doctors (depends on who you get) parking wise is abit horrible thou. Crazy prices yet always full. Either you valet or Park opposite at the hdb and walk over via the bridge.

I gave birth to 2 kids here with some pregnancy complications. I am very grateful for the care of DR W K Tan and all her personal nurses! The team deserves 5 stars but I reserve one due to the admin staff. Recently, I booked an appointment on Thomson homepage. When I called up the clinic 3 days in advance only to find that DR W K Tan's admin staff or system did not integrate with the hospital or something. I called up the counter, the lady tried to offer a few time slots. When I decided not to book, i was given the take-it or-leave-it attitude again.
