Manulife ReadyMummy: Singapore’s first maternity plan with mental wellness and miscarriage due to accident coverage

Manulife Singapore today launched ReadyMummy, a single premium 3-year maternity plan1 that provides protection for expecting mothers from as early as 13 weeks into the pregnancy, and their child from birth, all the way until the policy ends. The first of its kind in Singapore, ReadyMummy looks after both the physical and mental well-being of mothers. Depression affects 10 to 15% of women after childbirth2, making holistic protection for mothers even more important.

Darren Thompson, Chief Product Officer, Manulife Singapore said: “Having a child is a significant milestone that marks the beginning of an exciting yet often unpredictable journey. As parents, we all want the best for our children and never feel like we can be too prepared for the arrival of our little ones. By offering comprehensive protection and support against pregnancy-related costs, we hope to enable parents to navigate through this new life stage confidently and worry-free.”
