Hmm... Just share my opinion of having gynae of choice. I think the gender of gynae should not be a criteria to hinder you from choosing a good gynae. My hubby asked me if I want to ve a female gynae but I told him that I prefer a gynae who is really good at bedside and delivery experience regardless of gender. But of course, The most important thing is your hubby and yourself have to be comfortable with the gynae and trust his/her diagnosis on your pregnancy.
My first time consultation was like cutting throat. Consultation is $150 (for first time, subsequently is $60 I think) and scanning is $60. But My hubby and I both felt that quite worth to have Dr PT as our gynae due to his professionalism. Patience to explained a list of questions that I prepared and given some suggestions based on natural way.
So it is really depends on how experience of gynae you engage for your pre-natal checking.
Hi Neymo thanks for your advise. Looks like I have to find another as he is not comfortable with guy doctors staring at the vjj. My next appointment is in two weeks. Omg.. Maybe will transfer to tiong bahru. I heard the packages are more worth it and can be paid by medisave. Did you take package up yet?
Wow, $97 & $150 for first consultation is already cheap! Just sharing, my first consultation was $250++.
Subsequent is slightly cheaper..
But all in all, I'm happy with my gynae. My hubs & myself like her very much..
I am going to india for my delivery as my parents n in laws are there. So i am consulting in a clinic here with Dr.Kishan Dhakshayini. Its in city hall and for scanning i m gng to a dctr in china town. Both the dctrs are very good and friendly.
Wow how many months are you now? Thanks for letting me know our price is okay.
Hi, I just delivered in may and my gynae is prof tan hak koon. He quite nice and will answer whatever question you have for him. He alway assured me every thing will be fine, not to.worry so much. He quite fatherly I feelOriginally Posted by babyjade:671768

Hi daphne! No the nurse mentioned something like consultation is $90 but because they are a new clinic they only charge $50 . Plus the scan and everything it was $97. I guess both my hubby and I were just shocked cos we didn't know the market rate. Lol.
Hi Mummies! This is my second pregnancy. My first was with Dr Irene CHua and I made appointment to go see her tomorrow!
Based on the what to expect app, my EDD will be on 6 March, so I am at week 8 today! Looking forward to see baby tomorrow!
Actually I'm not sure if I wanna continue with Doc Irene as last time at KK consultation was only $70 each time with test and scan. Then my delivery, natural no epi, I only paid $1200 in cash.
So doc Irene is now in Gleneagles I would like to follow her as she is a good doc and good seamstress. I can walk around the ward immediately next day absolutely no pain. hmmm hmmm...
I heard Doc Goh is very good also. So half of me tempted with the cost savings $1-2K can buy alot of other things..
Decided go see Doc Irene first and see the hospital package.
Maybe cos I second one already so not so excited! It was really comfortable with Doc Irene and she is very assuring.
Oops! I got so excited I found the thread I forgot to say congratulations to all mummies!
I was busy reading to catch up then I realised!
Hi all, i miss posting or updating in here.
Been reading your updates but i dont feel like updating mine.
Last fri, I found brown spottings.
Straightaway i went to Kandang Kerbau Hospital A&E.
The doc said that its a warning sign of miscarriage but during the scan,
a tiny fetal pole seen with no heartbeat yet, at that point of time its at 5wks 1day.
Doc gave me a hormone jab & was asked to strictly bedrest at hm & monitor.
Just this Monday, 4th day after the spottings, spottings still there.
Called gynae & she booked me an appt same day @ Kandang Kerbau Hospital TPS.
Before i went to Kandang Kerbau Hospital, the spottings changed from brown to red
I broke into tears .. i m WORRIED & STRESSED!!!
Wen i was @ TPS, was feeling very2 down.
Lucky hubby was there but still the worry was there.
I went into my gynae's rm, she scanned me & guess what there's hearbeat.
I say this to myself "Amin, syukur Ya Allah" (in english, thk God)
But doc says its still in a stage of "threaten miscarriage" as I m still having spottings.
She increased my hormone dosage from 2 to 3 times a day & I be seeing her again on
30th July 2012.
She wanted to give me the hormone jab but she said that jad can only be given a wk after a
jab has been given as I was given last friday.
Till now, theres still spottings but its back to brown color.
Of course i still feel worried as its not in clear color.
But I feel slightly assured when i saw the heartbeat.
Plssssss pray for me & baby that we gonna b fine .. I really appreciate it alot.
As for now I m strictly bedresting.
Thks hubby & mum for taking care of me & my son.
Sorry to trouble both of you ....
Dear ArDz, everything will be fine, dont't stress yourself. Have a good rest and keep your mood up. (hugss)
It is good to have the heartbeat of the baby and I believe your little tiny precious is also fighting very strong to be your kid So, be strong!!
I'll pray for you and your little angel!!
