This is a discussion on Hospital Bill for Mt A delivery ( after Jun 2009 ) within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by breadgal haha.. hopefully not much different fr mi .. cos we about the same except you got ...
I am planning to deliver at Mt. A too. Have checked with my gynae and he says on estimation, to prepare about $100 cash after medisave deduction for 4 bedded, normal delivery without complications. And for epidural, another extra $600 on top of the $100. He says this info was given to him by his patients that delivered there.
I'm definitely going for 4 bedded too, since staying at very very most 2 nights, I dont't see the need to spend so much to stay so comfortably in own room since I dont't have the budget. In fact, for my 1st child, i stayed in those open ward with 10 or more patients. Without air-con type somemore.
But for private gynae, no choice, have to take 4 bedded at least.
This is a good topic suit me. I'm choosing Mt A too and EDD on 7th Nov. I choose 1 bedded and wondering how much will the total be? As this is my 1st baby.
you can go to Mt A web site to check.. they will show the charges
