 With a 24-hour Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a mama-friendly attitude to breastfeeding and skin-to-skin, Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital is with you every step of your parenting journey.

You’re expecting! Congratulations! Before you choose a name, choose your nursery décor and pick out super cute baby grows – you’ll need to choose a hospital. This decision is a biggie! We’ll make it easy for you. Know that Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital offers obstetrics services from pregnancy (prenatal services and appointments), to supporting you during your delivery, as well as looking after you and your baby afterwards with its postnatal services.  

What makes Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital stand out?

Its friendly, forward-thinking, can-do attitude to mamas and babies showing real patient-centric care: “Yes, you can have skin-to-skin, yes please room-in with your baby where they belong – right by your side, and yes, of course, we will help you breastfeed!”.


Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital (GHK) encourages and supports skin-to-skin time between mother and baby – that’s when you let your bub snuggle directly on your skin after birth (whether you’ve had a c-section or vaginal delivery). It’s a great way to bond, letting your baby feel you, smell you, and hear your heartbeat but it’s also been shown to help baby’s immunity. Dad won’t feel left out as he’s welcome to cuddle skin-to-skin with baby too.

24-hour rooming in

GHK recognises that parents want to be with that little bundle of joy they’ve been waiting 9 months to meet! That’s why they encourage your baby to stay in your room with you. This makes it easier for skin-to-skin time and of course facilitates breastfeeding – something else that GHK is very pro.

Breastfeeding & lactation help

If you are giving birth at GHK, know that they offer lactation support – a massive help for new mothers! A lactation expert can advise the best position to feed, help you if you have difficulty with getting your baby to latch on and just as importantly, be there for friendly, emotional, support as you navigate the start of your memorable parenting journey.


GHK is the only private hospital on Hong Kong Island equipped with a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), as well as 24-hour outpatient and emergency services. Having the reassurance of GHK’s professional team, ready alongside all the necessary neonatal equipment should your baby need emergency care, is one of the biggest draws of this hospital.
