Choosing where your baby will be born is an important decision for parents. Sunway Medical Centre has modern delivery rooms equipped with up-to-date technology, ensuring a safe, private, and welcoming environment. Our expert team of doctors, nurses, and doulas will be by your side, providing the best possible care during one of the most precious moments of your life.

Baby Delivery Options

Sunway Medical Centre’s delivery rooms are available with the following services:

Natural childbirth

This is the preferred option for a healthy mother and a baby with no abnormalities, as there are no risks of surgical complications or infection. Childbirth through the birth canal naturally drains the amniotic fluid from the baby's lungs, allowing for their expansion in a natural process.

Vaginal childbirth with epidural analgesia

Another option for healthy mothers and babies is a form of natural childbirth in which our doctors use a spinal block to reduce delivery pain by injecting medication into the spinal column. Although the pain is reduced, you will still feel the sensation of your baby passing through the birth canal.

Caesarean section

If a mother cannot give birth naturally due to a medical condition, a problem with the baby, or the baby's position in the womb, a C-section is the safest way to proceed. However, since it is a surgical procedure, there is greater blood loss and a longer recovery time due to the need to care for the incision point. Healthy mothers and babies can also safely have Caesarean sections, but the mother should understand the after-delivery care issues.

During delivery, a medical team consisting of the chosen doctor, anesthesiologists and nurses will provide close care for both the mother and baby. As soon as the baby is born, the nursery staff will take diligent care of the baby's health.
