thanks for that info! i think ill just cancel the dietician appointment.
yes gave birth at raffles. single bed room. i was holding an employment pass that time so no benefits. all paid by us. because doc tried to induce so had to pay for labor room which we didnt make use of in the end as we had to to a cs anyway. that added to the cost. all in all around 8-9K. signed up for the delivery package but i still cant figure out how it went that high. double the doctor's fee because it was cs so that might have accounted for the added cost.
i didnt get a confinement lady. it isn't our practice i was on my own for the first 3 weeks. was okay except for a time that i had this terrible stomach cramps. my cousin just came over to help with some housework. after that i went home overseas when baby was 3 wks old. i got a nanny when i was there and brought her back here in singapore.
