My husband, the sole breadwinner in the family, passed away unexpectedly when I was into my seventh month of pregnancy. It was a devastating period for my seven-year-old daughter and me. Upon knowing our situation, my gynaecologist, Dr Adrian B. Woodworth from Thomson Women’s Clinic, waived his prescription and caesarean charges. He also approached the anaesthetist, Dr Yvonne Lim, and paediatrician, Dr Lillian Lim, and they also waived their charges before my delivery date, to ease my financial burden. This episode goes to show that not all private-sector doctors and hospitals are profit-driven.
