Postnatal care

Postnatal Care

It is important to bond with your newborn in the days after your baby's arrival. That is why we have put together a suite of postnatal services under one roof so that you have more time to spend with your little one.

After-birth care

You can rely on our experienced team of nurses to care for you in the postnatal period, especially in breastfeeding, baby baths and newborn screenings.

Once you've delivered your baby, you can look forward to:

  • Immediate skin-to-skin contact with your baby.
  • Rooming in with your baby for at least 24 hours, to promote parent-child bonding.
  • 5 sumptuous and nutritious confinement meals daily, with complimentary meals for fathers.
  • 1 free lactation massage session and lactation counselling.
  • Breastfeeding support by trained nurses.
  • Nursery services.

Birth registration

You may register your baby online through the LifeSG app within 42 days of the child’s birth.

Upon successful registration, you will receive a notification to download your child’s digital birth certificate via the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) website.
