Pregnancy Care & Delivery
Dr T.C.Chang is an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at Thomson Medical Centre and at Mt Elizabeth Hospital Novena. About 50% of his patient base are expatriate couples from Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand.

“Becoming a mother is one of the most wonderful experiences life has to offer. At the same time it can be an un-nerving experience, especially away from your home country and support network of family and friends. My role is to equip the Mother-to-be with the necessary knowledge and confidence to cope with her new role and enjoy it. Part of my role is to monitor the risks associated with any particular pregnancy. By understanding the background and concerns the couple may have, sensible advice and useful clinical information provided can help them to make informed decisions, be it in confronting genetic/ prenatal diagnostic problems or preparing for labour and birth.”

Each pregnancy is unique and all the choices are individualized to each couple. “We aim for natural childbirth in most cases, as long as your pregnancy is low risk and we have discussed such issues well ahead of time. Birth plans are encouraged. We offer a full range of pain relief and assistance as and when requested.”

To provide extra support for his patients at Thomson Medical Centre, Dr Chang works alongside a British Registered Expatriate Midwife and Nurse Kiki Porter Wolff. For the past 10 years Kiki has supported Dr Chang’s patients and provides doula services to his patients. Kiki is married with 2 grown up daughters of her own and has 35 years of Nursing and Midwifery experience in Europe and Asia. To contact Kiki please ring her on +65 91085521.

Dr Chang and his team focus on what is important to you. We concentrate on the things we can do for you during pregnancy, labour, birth and the post-natal period instead of limitations. Individual care is given using a holistic combination of medical, psychological and emotional support. “We also liaise with paediatricians, family physicians and physiotherapists to ensure that any problems that occur before or after delivery are sorted out expeditiously.”

Dr Chang also looks after pregnant women who have high risk pregnancies or who have had surgical complications during previous deliveries. Carefully planned Caesarean sections are performed by Dr Chang to optimise the surgical outcome. These small crucial steps in linking medical and para-medical care help make what is a major event a fulfilling and memorable one.
