    Amongst all the local hospitals in Hong Kong, obstetrics services of Gleneagles Hospital Hong Kong (Gleneagles) appears to stand out when it comes to first-class treatment for mothers-to-be, especially for those who intend to breastfeed. 

    Gleneagles is very conveniently located near the Ocean Park MTR Station, which is one stop away from Admiralty Station. A 3-minute free shuttle bus is available just outside the station with 10-20 minutes interval or you can simply take a taxi or drive to the hospital via Wong Chuk Hang Road. 

    In the hospital, you and your baby will be well-cared by professional obstetric and nursery nurses.

To ensure your newborn baby is secured, he / she will be linked with Baby Security System and all doors are locked at all times with 24-hour CCTV surveillance. 

    Gleneagles ensures that you and your baby are being taken great care of throughout the whole extraordinary journey, from prenatal to postnatal. The hospital believes mother and baby are closely connected even after birth. In order to develop a close and loving relationship between the mother and her baby, the hospital supports skin-to-skin contact, i.e. the mother will be having a direct contact with her baby immediately after birth for at least until after the first feed and for as long as they wish. This help to enhance baby’s sense of security, mother-baby communication and early initiation of breastfeeding. Besides, 24-hour rooming-in services enables mothers to identify early feeding cues and provides responsive care to their babies with the nursery nurses and lactation consultants support. To show its commitment in this lactation support, the hospital is currently the only private hospital in the city participating in the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative. It also provides pre- and post-lactation support by its International Board Certified Lactation Consultants.
