Bringing Up Children

Everything for parents with young children living in Singapore: with information on health matters, child benefits and childcare...

In Singapore mothers-to-be are closely monitored and undergo a number of compulsory medical examinations and a dental check. It is common practice for an obstetrician to oversee the birth. Following the birth, mothers stay in the hospital or clinic between two and five days and longer after a caesarean.

Mothers are entitled to eight weeks maternity leave after the birth and an additional four weeks if breastfeeding.

There is no family financial assistance other than that parents with more children get better tax benefits.
