    Cos my wife's gynae is only based in Mount E Orchard. No choice. Have set aside plus minus S$15k for the delivery as my wife most probably will be going for c-sec with epidural and I would like to be there for her, hence single bedder...... so it will cost me my arm and leg...hahahah....

    well it's ok lar... as long as baby and mummy are safe and healthy.... ;-)

    Wow...killing me man.
    I think should be around that cost. My friend c-sec at raffles hospital, billed 11k.

    Hi I'm Malaysian here. Planing to deliver my baby here in Sg .


    Wow I didn't know mt. E orchard so expensive! My hubby want me to deliver there so I'm seeking my gynae at mt. E medical center . Haven't ask about the fee or anything yet.


    So is your gynae will let you know when it's the time to discuss or you have to ask about it? I'm first time mum :)
     
  15. u not trying for normal delivery mah?

    Hi Jeanie. cos my wife most probably will deliver via c-sec... either with epidural or GA...and I insist that she take the single bedder so I can be with her.... Mount E Orchard has 2 bedder which is slightly cheaper... when is your EDD? have you done any maternity tour? our gynae is dr chia yee tien.... well if you need any info, feel free to let me know...cheers....

    My EDD is on 2 Jan 2015. I'm half way thru so kind of curious about it. We choose Mt. E orchard because we live in somerset when I found out I'm pregnant. My dr. recommended Dr. Chia yee tien and dr. Selina chua. By that time I called dr.chua 's appointment kind of full as I'm almost 12weeks so I go with dr. selina chua. I haven't do any maternity tour yet as I think no matter what I'm gonna deliver there. I would probably go for natural if possible and with epi. And my husband prefer single bed too.
    I did check the price on the website and saw some thread about the price like so big different. Wonder how that happen. Must be a lot add on then.

    Thanks a lot thou. :)

    hi, I am from msia working in SG..i delivery my no#1 last time in KL last 2 year ago.
    I was delivered via emergency c sec after failed to natural give birth as baby head does not engaged.
    that time I went back to msia around week 37/38 cant really remember it.
    The emergency c sec was cost about 8k++ ringgit. which compare to sg for same emergency csec would be cost 10-12k sgd which I heard frm other mummies.
    So if having #2 baby, I still considering whether to delivery in Msia as the cost of deliver in sg is pretty expensive.
    and some more I wish to have VBAC , if it's failed trying...the cost would be a bomb ..sigh.

    Any mummies here are deliver baby in Johore bahru ?

    Hello everyone. . Same situation here. Edd in Jan but might expected in end Dec because of c section. I also will delivering in TMC and I am expecting to pay at least $10k. Wish that I can deliver in Msia but hubby doesn't allow me to me away too long from him. He rather pay more. . The worst is I supposed to hv insurance claim but not valid until 7 Jan. Finger cross that my bb no rush to come out until 7 Jan. Anyway we should be glad that sg do not the most expensive delivery cost. It costs at least HKD100k = SGD16.5 for natural birth.

    Hi Jeanie,

    My wife delivered our baby boy safely on 4 Nov.... baby couldn't wait till 7 Nov... hehe...but as long as baby and mummy are fine, I'm ok..... Dr Chia was quite encouraging..... and delivered our baby via emergency c-sect.... opted for single bedder...and stayed with my wife for the whole duration.... we stayed 4 days 3 nights... but extended 1 night cause baby got jaundice and needs the light therapy for 2 nights... but Dr Chia advised us to go back as it can be quite costly if we stayed for one more night with our baby....anyway we can't do much.... so very reluctantly went home on sat..... and came back to bring home our baby on sun........

    jia you ya Jeanie.... ;-)

    normal is 5k
    C sec is 10k

    Not too far from the estimation cost than what they quoted

    Some his patients now go to Gleneagles Medini to see a resident gynae there Dr Zaharuddin Rahmat.

    I delivered under Dr Mohanraj from KPJ Johor Specialist Hospital at Johor Bahru by C/Section. In fact, I did my IVF/test tube procedure with him. The cost for a C/S under his excellent care was under RM 12,000. Even though I had to pay all this amount, I found that Dr Mohanraj's care and the hospital that he works in is worth all of it. Through out my journey of trying to conceive (IVF cycle, under RM 18 000) and care during pregnancy, Dr Mohanraj was very caring and gentle doctor. I would highly recommend him and his hospital for anyone trying to conceive or planning their delivery in Malaysia.
