    Hi,

    I'm 29 weeks pregnant, currently with ACJ at TMC, they charge me $200+ each visit. Been there three times, they didnt tell me abt their package until I was 22 weeks. Their package is about $700+, only include scan, blood test and consultation. Not including vitamins. Found it a bit expensive.

    So, I'm just wondering if mommies here can help me by sharing ur packages and perhaps, ur delivery cost as well? Feel like changing gynae.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I'm with Dr Adrian Woodworth from Thomson Women's Clinic. His package is $550 excluding GST. Package starts as early as week 4, includes routine ultrasound scan, consultation (unlimited visit), vitamins & flu medicine. Excludes hormone tab, highblood pressure & other non-routine medicine.

    Can't remember how much I spent on delivery cost as it was 4 yrs ago.

    Hi,

    I'm with Dr Adrian also. Yup, package is still $550+GST last year. Excludes the NT and detailed scan done at TMC @ 231.1. Fish Oil natal care plus is $30+GST

    But my delivery cost is at high side @2100+GST, cos emergency Cesarean. Normal delivery fee is $1000+GST if i'm not wrong.

    Hi, I'm with Dr Lawrence Ang from TMC but his clinic is at Sun Plaza. Antenatal package is also at $550 which includes consultations, ultrasounds at each visit, routine blood test and vitamins. Not included are Down test, FA scan and other additional tests as well as Fish Oil. Very similar charges as Dr Adrian.

    Hi Juliana,

    Dr Lawrence Ang & Dr Adrian are both under Thomson Women's Clinc. Thats why charges are the same. The only difference is both of them runs different clinics.

    Delivery charges is separate. Natural birth charges is cheaper than C-sect charges. More like A-la-carte. We pay for the service we require. I feel this is better than paying high fees which includes Ante-natal & delivery (same charge regardless of natural birth or C-sect).

    Hi Joey,

    I decided to stick with Caroline Khi, did try to ask around but a bit too late as now I am in my 31 weeks. Other gynae dont offer package anymore and have to pay pervisit. Well, what i can do is lessen the number of my appointments with Dr. Khi as I'm in a very tight budget.

    I think she is the cheapest in ACJ.

    How old is ur pregnancy?

    Anyone get antenatal package from 12 weeks onwards? Too late? The later the higher is the package costs? - cannot be right?
    I am stuck overseas, so can only get such packages when I return to Sg. By then it's about 12 weeks. Any risks?

    Dear Mummies,

    Can i check if anybody here have good experience with their gynae to share or any recommended gynae from Mt A or TMC? I am staying around Toa Payoh.

    I am in my 5 weeks now but yet to visit a gynae. Hope to do some research before i commit to a gynae.

    All advise are appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi slapurface,

    Are u referring to Dr Adrian's charges? Additional detail scans done at TMC is not included. Also exclude blood test on hcg level, high blood pressure med, diabetic med, hormone med & jab. Typically, he'll charge for those tests or medication which not all preg women need. This is only fair rite? His package also includes unlimited post natal check up ie up to your next preg. Of course, pap smear post delivery is excluded.

    slapurface, the prices that they comments EXCLUDES the stay at hospital. last year i stayed at TMC, i paid about 2 thousand over dollars, excluding my gynae fees. and also they also have a nursery package for your newborn.

    Hi slapurface, I think it's before gst also. N r u sure u'll be able to survive without epidural?

    Hehe, I'm with dr tc tan at KK. Each visit is about $50 excluding supp but he gave free supp occasionally n only visited him 10 times so ard $500?? During my delivery, I had to induce due to leek in water bag n afraid of infection. I couldn't dilate but dr tan was wonderful n didn't give up on me! I was in the delivery suit 3 days 2 nights n finally a natural birth. In the meantime, I had epidural, petidine n finally the 'laughing gas' to relieve pain. Finally stayed in a 4 bed ward for 2 days. After medisafe n stuff, paid abt $2k. Do take note that if there's any complications, KK is still the cheapest.

    I'm currently in my 19th week, visiting LN Sim at TMC.

    I went for a scan in wk 8 cos anytime earlier, u won't see much also. I only sign my package at wk 14 for $700 which includes basic consultation and ultrasound pics. Multi vits, fish oil n calcium is separate, abt $60+ per visit cos it's 1mth dosage. The nurse told me it will be mthly visit till 7th mth before I visit once every 3 weeks, den more frequently in the 8th n 9th mth.

    So far Doc LN Sim has been pretty professional, even though she has this serious look. Nurse are friendly also.

    I was with Dr Jocelyn Wong in ACJ Clinic at TMC with my 2 pregnancies & she terrible superb. She's full of TLC. My 1st pregnancy was with complication & she showered me with d attention n care tht I'm so thankful. My 2nd pregnancy was a smooth one but due to my history, she was very careful with me.
