I plan to book natural birth package at Kandang Kerbau Hospital through TPS. If in case, have to go for emergency c-sect, then will they charge just the difference (usage of ward, medication etc) or will they add full c-sect cost on top of normal delivery package? A bit confused.. I do intend to ask them when I'm there in 2 weeks..
Your personal experiences and responses will be appreciated.. TIA!
Hi fishnchips... Thanks a lot for your reply! Yes, I'm under dr. Wee .. I will ask him and financial counseling desk also this time when there.. Need to make booking ASAP as edd is 17th July..
Were you also with him? Natural or c-sect? Delivered already?
Congrats!! How's your little one doing?
I'm hoping all goes well n give natural birth.. Which ward you chose? Premier package? Can tell how much they charged, breakdown etc, if any? Thanks so much!!
Mine was an induced natural birth. It took so long that hubby kept asking if I should just go for C-Sect. But after delivery, we realised that there are others whose induced natural birth plan was so much longer. I guess as time goes by, Dr Wee should be able to advise the probability of natural or C-Sect. I was under Premier package. The ward is assigned according to the different packages.
Yups, just saw your pm n replied.. Thanks so much! Can't wait to see little one now as last month n so tired!
Care to share the bill? Im due in end August and thinking of opting the Premier Package. Hopefully it is not out of my budget... thanks in advance
I asked the officer yesterday, and her response was "you can't say we have increased, we are just revising our charges since it has all the while been under-charged". I'm planning to go ahead with B1 too but probably classic package since there is a difference of $500 between premier and classic.
Sorry for the late reply. Same like you, when I called, they advise that the deposit to be $2.6K. On the day of making payment, I pay $2,080.00 as the cash deposit.
Oh wow, how is that so? You tooke A ward premier package?

The lady at the counter told me my gynae will attend to me if I opt for any of the packages but for premier, after I'm sent to the ward, my gynae will come and check on me and the baby. Since my gynae will be gone by Oct, I took classic package. No point paying premier if I give birth end of Sept.
I am under Kandang Kerbau Hospital TPS and plan to go for natural birth. I still considering either to deliver in Kandang Kerbau Hospital or change to another hospital if the price is unacceptable high for Premiere Package. How? My due date is on December.
Yup, agree with you since our gynae is shifting to Thomson Medical Center! I'm gonna be taking the classic package too!

Will share my bills with you all soon but I guess my bill is higher than average coz I used the labour ward more than 8 hours, took epidural, induce... And many more... My boy simply loves staying in my tummy. TBH, I am very satisfied with KK's cust service.. Although most nurses are not local, they are very dedicated, in fact better than the locals.
Just want to share my personal experiences,
My 1st child: I gave birth at Kandang Kerbau Hospital under TPS.
Consultation was per visit charge about 60-80 per visit.. Also need to add my petrol, travel time n parking charge n vitamin too
When I was admitted to gave birth, I was left alone.. W my hubby n both of us dont't know anything and never teach us how to read graph..
Press alarm. No nurse attend to us.
Asked hubby to call nurse come in.. Also take a long time.
My 2nd child: at Thomson Medical Center
Price of consultation package rate- Check up every 3 weeks include multi vatamin
N the clinic 5 min drive from my house.
Upon admitted, min 1 nurse standby with me in delivery ward.. Even if they go out.. They pop by every 5 mins ..
Lastly Thomson Medical Center delivery ward very. Class to Kandang Kerbau Hospital facilities.
In fact after I do my sum.. I think Thomson Medical Center is cheaper than TPS total bill.
So unless you r taking referral from polyclinic.. I think Thomson Medical Center is more worth the money, doctor n nurse more caring.
If I have another baby I will definitely go back to Thomson Medical Center.
Oh.thats pretty exp!i thought you paid for c sec.somemore its classic and not even premiere package! Baby kitty paid $2080,so i supposed its b1 ward?
hi diza, i went to do my admission paper work today. i paid $2649 too but for premiere single ward package as my gyne have to be under the premiere package one.
is it? cos when i did the registration, they stick the premiere package to my booklet.then i asked whats the difference,the guy said classic package my own gynae might not deliver for me..so im pretty confused too. somemore i am paying the same amount of deposit as you.
