Caring for Common Issues in Newborns

Contributed by: Kids Clinic

Huge Crowd Listening To Infant Related Talk In 2018

The Pregnancy to Parenthood seminar organised by Mummys Market was held on 13 October 2018 at the Singapore Expo.

As part of a series of seminars, our paediatrician Dr Simon Ng shared with more than 200 expecting couples on common newborn issues that soon-to-be parents should take note of when caring for their new arrival.

Dr Ng touched on topics like proper breastfeeding techniques to ensure a newborn feeds well, and precautions to take when putting a newborn to sleep. He also shared on how new parents can manage and care for common newborn conditions like jaundice, diarrhoea, vomiting and fever.

Our O&G specialists from SMG Women’s Health, Dr Watt Wing Fong and Dr Kanika Chauduri also shared insights on delivery options and processes for parents-to-be.
Over at our booth, seminar participants were also invited to download “Diary of a Mum: My Baby’s First Months“, our newly launched e-book to help new mums navigate the journey from pregnancy to parenthood.
