do you tink i shld stick to my 2nd gynae mah ?? i feel comfortable w him but not e 1st 1 that is y i switched but e charges r scarring me off that is y i need to know any reasons ere mayb if its so expensive. and also for my next appt i need to sign up for e antenatal package @ $700 , blood test @ $240 n downsydrome test @ $67 expensive or not ????? n also hw do we calculate the max medisave that we can claim for all these charges- antenatal charges, delivery charges, maternaity ( hospital) charges????? both hubby n me are quite worried about all e charges as i m not working @ all from e day i knew i was preggy now @ 11wks. as my gynae can deliver both @ Thomson Medical Center or mt A thereofore any break down of any lastest hospital charges would definitly help alot.......thk you so much for all info provided.........*worried*
i think if you're comfortable with this gynae, just stick to him... a gynae must be someone you're comfortable with and trusted on.. the 1st visit $200+ might because that's your 1st visit..
mostly 1st visit more ex .. and they also wanna "encourage" you to take up package which is much more worth it as frm about 30 weeks onwards checkup is 3week, then 2 weeks then 36weeks onwards is once a week.. if you take up package, you dont hav to pay consultation, scanning, urine test seperately cos all these r inside the package.. =)
as for the hospital, i saw from other thread that Thomson Medical Center seems to rise the price since last yr?? actually i'm also quite interested to know the hospital charges as i'm same as you, hubby is currently the sole breadwinner. LOL...
OMG i seems to type aLOT!!! LOL
Hi dear, actually for your package, it's considered pretty reasonable. Relating to down syndrome testing, like regina - i didn't do it. For blood test I paid around 80+.
Choosing a gynae that you have trust in and feels comfortable is important. This helps to lessen your stress during pregnancy.
I am currently seeing my gynae who is over at Thomson Medical Center and will be delivering there.
If you would like to find out more on the latest hospital bill, you may want to visit the MOH website where they update monthly to show the size of the bill. It will be a good gauge of you will be paying and such.
thkd regina n yellow pudding for your info. hmmmm y didnt your take e downsydrome test ????? n also hw cum e px differs so much my d.s test @ $67 n regina @ $300+ n my blood test @ $240 n yellow pudding @ $80. alamak all these prices are confusing me man. but then again if i stick 2 tis gynae then boh pian got to bear all e costs . .......sigh........

pink kitty: My edd is supposedly on 15 June but doc warns maybe earlier than expected so ask me to get prepared from Mid May onwards. Will be delivering over at Thomson Medical Center.
actually last time thought of Kandang Kerbau Hospital .. but went there for an appt and realised their waiting time very long.. and after some compare, actually price are around e same if give birth at private, just that governement hospital can use more medisave i think..

pink kitty: my previous gynae INSISTED on me doing that down sym test, she literally get the nurse to "FORCE" me and hubby to choose between that two dates she is available. Exclaiming must be on either of that two dates. Furthermore, her nurse is really very rude to my hubby - as we requested for them to reprint all the receipts since they have spelled my name wrongly more than once.
We went home and seek my in laws advice regarding the down sym test, father in law and mother in law are shocked and said that it shouldn't be the case as I am not in my 30s yet. Hence hubby rang the clinic and let them know our decision.
Guess what? The gynae asked immediately - why are we rejecting this test and what happened if the baby has it and all?
Need not to say - hubby and I were fuming mad and we just cancelled my next checkup, obtain all my medical reports and go to my current gynae.
dont need to fast decide .. i think around 3rd trimester?? i know for Thomson Medical Center, 3rd trimester (about 32weeks lik that) need to book bed ..
in e meantime mayb you can go do some "research" on the 2 hospital. haha..
reginakoh: Dr Adrian Tan. :P

pink kitty: I will be opting for natural birth. pray pray everything will be okay.
