hi mizfitmumma, congratz on your baby boy!
i will aso be delivering at Thomson Medical Center but till now no signs of labour..
so total cash you paid for your Thomson Medical Center bill is $1300 after CPF?
does that include gynae fees as well?
Can i check with you how much is your total bill after medisave? Is it just $1300? Does it include dr fees? If Dr fees not included then how much will that be? Because Dr Ang told meif I still not in labor by next week will need to induce and if induce not successful will need c-sect so i'm worried it will be ex need to be prepared first.
Hi A.lin, sorry for the late reply. Have been ver busy with my son nowadays. dont even have enuf sleep... Gynae fees are different. I've paid them when I 1st started seeing Dr Ang. After medisave I've paid areound $1.3k plus. For induce & emergency c-sect need to pay slightly more. I also emergency c-sect. Try normal first by my son's head got stuck at birth canal, cannot move down, so got to emergency c-sect. 1 day plus lei labour... damn long. Dilate only 4cm coz baby head stuck. Dr Ang advice me after this if got second baby betta straight away c-sect coz afraid if history repeat itself unless my baby is very small liky 2.5kg. When I deliver my baby, he is also considered small. 2.935kg only but his head got stuck that is why cannot dilate more than 4cm...then have to c-sect..sigh... How are you?? have you deliver?
Wow that is consider cheap, $1300 for csect, strange mine was normal stayed for only one day still have to pay $1.2 k for baby n me..

By the way mine was auto upgraded from 4 bedded to 2 bedded.
I delivered on the 7th June! Did it natural w/o epidural, i thought i will die in the labour rm man, sOOOOOOOOOO painful!
i had contraction around 2am but gyne only ask me to admit at 8am.
From 2am to 11am, the pain was still bearable.
Then it start to get painful and i ask for laughing gas. i only inhale the gas when the pain come, but after more than an hr, i cannot stand it, was crying and already sign consent form for epidural.
But my gyne told me he estimated only 2 hours more so i opt for the pencillin instead.
I was so tired and i start to continously inhale the laughing gas, i think this shld be the correct method coz i start to relax and become dizzy frm the combined effect of gas & pencillin...
Then less than 2 hours later, i can feel the urge to push! Dat is the real painful part.
Everything happen very fast from then on, but i dont knw hw to push correctly, so ended with a big tear and baby was vaccumed out!
Now sitting on a float while typing this, all mummies shld get the tummy binder from hospital as well otherwise difficult to walk with tummy wobbling here and there after giving birth.
I am with Lawerence Ang at Thomson Medical Center and paid a total of less than $400 cash.
2 day, 4 bedded (auto upgraded to 2 bedder) natural delivery with vaccum and w/o epidural.
I like Lawerence Ang, he is good, humorous and so far accurate in his estimation! He is quick too!
Staffs at Thomson Medical Center are very encouraging and helpful as well.
Breasts is engorged and painful, shoulders are aching, wound is painful, but everything seems worth it when i look at my little one.
hi mich, mine bill almost same as you! did dr adrain collect 500 deposit frm you? mine he collected, but is not reflected in the bill.. so very puzzled about this..
and also my charges for dr adrain slightly higher than you..
wonder why got difference..
mine is forcep delivery..
Congrats!! I delivered my baby on 6th June at 1055pm. I think I was siting beside you when we visit Dr ang for check up on sat morn and was in the same lactation class as you if I'm not wrg. On sat after my check with dr ang he say I can consider to deliver on that 6th or on 7th ask me to think about it if I wanna deliver he will insert pill to let me diate further.
So me and hubby decided to go for it, but in the end he decided to manually dilate me with fingers, I was screaming like hell when he did that.
And after that I was put on ctg then send hm to rest.Dr Ang called me at 1pm and askme to admit to hospital by 4pm, just before I leave the house my waterbag burst. And the contraction became stronger and stronger, by the time I reach hospital I'm in pain with cold sweat. After dr ang came I ask him if i can have epidural, and he allow because he cantell I can't take the pain and that time i was about 5cm dilated. Finally I gave birth to my baby at about 11pm, tried vacuum but failed and in the end forcep. Dr Ang said my wound was very BIG and will be painful and take at least 2 weeks to heal. Now same as you resting at home.
My total cash after medisave came out is about $850 for natural with epidural using vacuum and forcep. (inclusive of baby bill)
