Does morning sickness happen only in morning or can be anytime of the day? I can feel like vomiting even at night. Just had a feeling and i dash to the toilet. Not sure if any colleagues notice since nobody knows anything yet.. haha..

Hello everyone congrats on ur pregnancy... Im in my 12 weeks now.. Edd 30jan 2016...
my edd 3rd feb . which gynae u took and how the pricing like ..
I went to poly and was referred to KKH under subsidize. Then only I know that we cant have a fix doctor / gynae.

Heard KKH private one is more expensive than outside private one . My fren recommend Dr Aziz @ Kembangan Plaza. Heard hes very good but delivering will be at East Shore. The monthly check up is cheaper as private outside than private @ KKH .. But the delivering at private hospital is worrying me on the cost .

Hi everyone, I'm new here. I was tested positive last month when I missed my menses by a week and based on the EDD I could be due 3rd March! I think I am in my second month of pregnancy now but have yet to see a gynae. It's my first pregnancy so I'm really clueless about what and how to go about.

I was reading around that some people actually go to polyclinic to ask for referral to hospital as subsidized patient but it's only applicable for B2 or C wards? If I plan to take a package under B1, should I just go to KKH directly as a private patient to make my first gynae appointment?

I decided not to go to KKH. Already booked an appointment to see Dr Heng Tung Lan at Parkway East after getting recommendation from my SIL. Package from 12wks onward is $856 but idk if increased already for this year. But appointment only on from mid Aug and by then I'm like 12wks already...
The $856 package for the whole of pregnancy ... Paid one shot or break down paymenats on every visits

I'm not sure of the new package price but I was told by my SIL that was the price she paid when she transferred from KKH to PEH mid last year and it's lumpsum when she paid for it.

Do you have any idea what's her package charges? I've booked my first appt with her but can't get thru to her clinic to fund out through price.

Hi Hafidza, my last visit was 2014...her package from 12wks is abt 800+
I am visiting her tmw, i will update u again.
Her cassia clinic not so crowded. But she only there on Monday/Wednesday. The rest she will be at her PEH clinic.

I just asked my cousin who gave birth a week ago and she said KKH private no package and each consultation is between $80-150 excluding medication and scans (about $100-300). The delivery package she signed up was about 3.5k (B1, 4 bed) and that they need to deposit ard 1.5k after medisave. My SIL's delivery package at PEH (2 bed) when she gave birth in Jan was ard 4k and they need to top up almost 2k after medisave.

Aside hoping and praying that all goes well, I think PEH charges is not that high as compared to other private hospitals. I've visited both wards and as a mommy who just given birth, I think a 2 bed room would be better for me since there would be lesser visitors.

Please do! And do we have an option to see her in her clinic and not in PEH?

Besides u don't get to see fix doctor, subsidzed delivery wards service are like shit literally. Ultimately u get what u paid for sad to say

im not sure mine is consider expensive or not...
consultation is about $80 to $100
ultrasound is $80
mine is at women's specialist Mount E

but most likely i will change gynae to NUH on the third trimester because i read NICU in Mount E is very expensive, about 1K per month. coz i having twins, high chance will need NICU.. if able to natural birth, and no need NICU, i would rather give birth at Mount E

I tried unpaid leave,but my boss rejected.anyone successful applied for unpaid leave for a month?
my colleague has applied unpaid leave for nearly 1 year... because i didnt see her for more than 1 year... but that's inclusive of maternity leave or HL i guess...
but if no valid reason, i dun think any boss will approve unpaid leave.. normally you have to neg with your boss first. when he/she agreed, then you apply...

for government bodies, unpaid leave confirm is ok...
 
Haish I work in a sales line job.so now I don have sales,very hard to neg.moreover,is so stressful for me..and I am so fatigue everyday.i dk how to get through it:(

Hi fellow mummies! I was just reading up on the Medisave Maternity Package. It says that we can use our medisave for pre-delivery usage i.e consultations / ultrascans? Does it mean i can use my Medisave to offset my monthly consultation charge at the hospital or can i also use it to offset my 12th week onwards package? Thanks!

For my no 1 we are allowed to claimed $450 from medisave after giving birth for pre-delivery consultation. Just need to keep the receipts up to $450. Not sure if they are any changes since.

not sure.. most likely i will stick with my gynae until last trimester then transfer to NUH if my gynae say i need caesarean and will be pre-term...
if not, i hope i can do it at mount E *pray*

you can refer to NUH for their rates here: http://www.nuhgynae.com.sg/cos/o.x?c=/wbn/pagetree&func=view&rid=1056785#antenatal

antenatal package starts from week 22 onwards. before that will be all ala-carte prices.

delivery prices are also indicated there.
