upgraded at no charge? how was your bill size? i also thought $86 throughout...cos they didnt mentioned it's per day during the tour.
Oh! By the way Congrats on your new addition Steffy!!
will also be delivering at Gleneagles in Sept. have not't gone on the tour yet, and probably wouldn't have the time to.
while doing the pre-registration, I asked them whether it was possible to get a one-bedder. the staff mentioned that as it's the 7th month now, there might be less patients - hopefully this holds till I deliver! I want my one-bedder! dont't mind being upgraded, though
chewthegum - all the very best! maybe we'll bump into each other when we're there. I'm due mid-Sept too.
My bill size is $7.5k+ for 1 bedder...
After medisave deduction is $5.4k+ cash
Gyne charge = $2.5+
Epi = $500
pediatrician = $300+
yup ... its $166 (including gst & tax) for hubby 2 days/3 nights lodging..
the food is good though... hence during the stay my husband say it cannot be $86 for the whole stay...
Oh ya car parking is $45 for the whole stay... (not included in the bill)
hmm,thats means not free upgrade..no rebate too? hmm..may i knw why is it 3D2N huh? or because baby under photo therapy? who is your pediatrician?
as days goes by..i'm abit panic! got many questions on my mind..dont mind i ask you all a few questions ya..
1) errr..can i ask after we register with glen E, they will not send us any sorts of docs etc right? Upon admission, husband just pass the docs (marriage cert, doc letter etc) to the counter ? my husband kept saying that during the tour , the CS lady got say will send us an envelope..but i cant recall ! =/
2) for Glen E hospital package let's say Normal Delivery 1 bedder is $3K, this 3K is inclusive of the 2days stay Room charges as well?because so far most of my friends gave birth at Mt A, i see their bill..it's like eg. 1 Bedder hospital package 2.6K, but then there's additional charges for the room..if 1st day they stayed in 2 bed ($600) , then 2nd day 1 bed ($800). so end up is more than 3K. Am confused..so not sure Glen E also practice this way?
3) after delivery, does hospital give us a spray for our bottom? like to soothe the pain and clean the wound?
thanks in advance!!!

Was busy with my Little Bundle of Noise..hence did not actively check my email and log in to mummysg
Yes its a free upgrade. No extra charges. I am paying the Single Room fee
1. No need to give marriage cert and such. just pass them your pre-admission envelope will do (The one they gave you during your registration) They did not send me any mail. Marriage cert etc is for registration of birth.... you can do it later
2) For the hospital package mine is $2888 (Epi Single Ward)
However there is other charges that is not included in the package like:
a) Surgical supplies
b) Medical Supplies
c) Equipment & Supply
e) Lab - Clinical
f) Lab - Referral
3) They did not provide any bottom spray. But during day 1 they will clean for you using a blue solution (not sure what is it)
My gynae dont advice any bottom spray... just wash with warm water to prevent infection
My pediatrician is Dr Liew Woei Kang ...
For the package is 3 days 2 nights for normal delivery.
My baby got no jaundice *touch wood* hence did not stay any extra day..
No worries..mE too hardly login here too.. By the way your pediatrician is recco by your gynae? Mine is gonna be glen E's in-house pediatrician Dr.Yip..hopefully not too ex.. =P
Arghh...I'm 38weeks today yet still no signs of labour! Pray hard i can deliver bef edd! dont't wanna get induce..
chewthegum, any reviews on dr yip? he was highly recommended so we are going to use him as our pedi too but hubby is worried about high charges.
Sigh cus we are the only ones delivering at glen e while the others are at thomson, mount A etc so hence, their bills are much cheaper than ours. End up hubby making noise already...
Other charges not in the package is about $4.7k
My total bill is $7.6k++
Package is $2888
Gynae charge is $2.6k
pediatrician i think its $300++
Hehe just enjoy your pregnancy for now... a lot of mommies are missing their pregnancy days including myself! Zzzz
Go for all your fav food and do all the shopping you want now before your confinement start ... hehe
im done with my pre registration also.. i took double bed w/o epidural. $1816 .. 3days 2nights.. my gyne fee estimated for normal is $1,2k.. what if i want to go home in 2days.. are they going to deduct the amount?
they will refund if theres excess...
I doubt so?
Cos min is 3 days 2 nights?
If you go home early what about baby? Cos baby need to be screen and check...
But if they really allows you to go home they will refund you whatever excess you paid but i doubt there will be excess.
They check every single things... like during delivery those cotton, gloves, surgical thingy etc etc
If you need them to FM for instead.. they also charge.. $1 per tiny bottle of FM
coz my collegue also gave birth in Glen E.. she and the baby was discharge a day after she delivers... i think if everything ok with you and the baby can go home in less than 3days... if normal delivery maybe..
steffy.. why you pay for epidural separate? i thought your package already includes epidural?
Wamy, the package include epi but dont include doc's attendance fees
you need to pay $500 for his presence haha
Oh... but if your stay 1 day... that means taking ala cart menu... i think quite ex also...cos they charge every single thing
But if can i suggest stay throughout...after epi you have to lie on the bed at least 12 hours
if discharge the following day very rush ... cos baby will only go for BCG jab for nx day (for my case)
so better be in hospital to be under monitor
$500 just for attendance to put epidural? haha so ex..
i took the package w/o epidural... i hope i can handle.. anyway i can ask for it if i really cant take it.. im also ok to stay 3days 2nights since it is already in the package...
your bill how is much deducted to medisave?
But if you can of course strongly encourage drug free labour...
Actually 3 days 2 nights is very short.. before you know it.. its time to go home lol.
I was admitted on wed midnight.. discharge on fri afternoon!
after deduction.. cash $5.6k
i hope i will get free upgrade too.. haha...
hehe best of luck wamy!
they are suppose to move me back to the single room once theres room
but i think they forgot or there isnt any single room lol!
yah thanks... im still waiting for baby.... 39 weeks & 2days now.... cervix still close... no signs of labor yet..
enjoy the last 1 week of being preggy and living like a queen!!!!
