Soothe your delivery with a water birth

Water birth is a popular birthing technique among women who prefer a natural childbirth without the use of epidural or medication, and who see the buoyancy of a warm water environment as a gentle way to support their birthing experience. Water birth has also been known to be less stressful on the mother and child.

Thomson Medical Centre is the only hospital in Singapore that provides the option of water birth.
