This is a discussion on EDD in July? within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by usagibb my lst one induce then emerg c-sect cost me about $6K lei....then since this #2 is ...
6-7k is already not very high. I tink my sister In law did an emergency c-sect too, and it went up to $10k or something, including the stay.
I intend to buy insurance for my baby immediately after giving birth so that he would be covered if anything happen. I know of baby who had to be hospitalised for respiratory problems and that can be alot of money also.
I know I painted a very grim picture. I suppose we should be prepared for emergencies!
I'm not very sure but I believe the cost quoted should be before medisave deductions. And I signed up for a package with my gynae and the nurse says I can also claim $400+ from the cost of the package after I deliver. Everything is new to me, so got to check with the experienced mamas.
you gals r amazing! Just 1 day and I have 3 pages to read!
I guess I m not as excited as this is #4 plus work and 3 boys are draining my energy flat
But it's really nice reading what you gals posted. . . Good to feel "young" again with all you young mummies. Enjoy motherhood as the kids grow really fast, my eldest is already 15 and dont really need mummy anymore.
Going HK next Fri so can still go for taka fair when I am back.
I plan to go without epidural. Might be painful during that few hours but still epidural has it own side effect, and that kind of back pain it "intro" is life time!! I rather pain for once than life time.
For me I plan to get 2 bed range.... coz just in case, we never know how the labour will end up.. still got some buffer to play with.. if is single bed sure $$$ and it will be out of what medisave can cover.
