btw if u go private hosp most of the detailed scans are done by the doctors personally. All my consultations is accompanied by scans, n all done personally by my gynae. I was seeing Dr Koh Gim Hwee from Raffles. He is a super nice n gentle n kind gynae. He is also very patient with scans esp when i was 12 weeks n was very eager to see baby's sex. He was really patient in trying to scan fr me to see... until i gave up n said its okay la next time but he will say nevermind i try a bit more. He also very cun bcos at 12 weeks he told me i'm 80% having a girl n true enough shes a girl.Hi,
Looking for good gynae who is specialised in the above. ie, mummies with history of birth complications. does he/she do the detailed scan personally? thanks for advice.
..... kk is the worst hospital around.I delivered too in normal ward..4 bedder..during visiting hours.Yelling and screaming.Though they say drs wld not be present during birth,2 drs came running to my aid,one of them heavily pregnant.
While my birth process was relatively short (about 10 hours) I was having contractions non-stop through-out the time. The last 4-5hours, it went to every 30 secs. I was also very very disappointed that when I checked-in, they told me that I will be giving birth in the normal ward, and not delivery ward. Luckily, we took a single bedder. The pain was absolutely un-bearable that I was screaming my head of for hours end, and the nurses kept scolding me. The gynae who was supposed to be there at 12am, only came nearly 9am (the next morning). My baby was born at 8:22am. It was the ward's receptionist/clerk (not nurse) who was there when my water-broke and baby came out. I had to do the whole thing myself, and I was a first-time mummy.
I was initially very angry, and wanted to pursue the matter, but we were too upset over our loss, and now I can't be bothered anymore. I guess private doesn't really mean better service or quality.
I can't say much for Kandang Kerbau Hospital either. The sub-clinic specifically told me that my baby is dying, and she told me to come back 4 weeks later and "see what to do". Feeling lost, I went to the Private Suite to hoping get a pvt gynae and get another opinion. I was told, I quote, "If you miscarry/baby dies, you usually will know. So you can come back then to the 24hr clinic."
I too felt my son kicking me up till the time he passed away. I can almost know the exact moment he died. The kicking was fading, and then it stopped.
Paid and get rotten svc. :mfrown::realmad:
Even thou we under subsidy, those gynae in C clinic still get same salary + there's std time for each patient (not pay more get more time), they dont suffer any pay cut due to our subsidy so I dont understand why we had to be treated like :9898: or not offered adequate care/attention:wemad:.
What I understand for Kandang Kerbau Hospital is that no matter what class you are paying, gynae are only responsible to sew you or step in for complications, not to stay with you during delivery, the midwives do all these.
Hi not sure if i can still reach out of you. Pls pm the name of doctor. I have similar situation with multiple miscarriage. Wana find a doctor whom can handle it. Thanks.Thanks all for your recommendations.
I've decided to see a senior consultant from the KKH Maternal Fetal Medicine Dept, after asking someone who works there. This dept specialises in high risk cases. Out of the 40 gynaes at KKH, only 5 do the amnio, cos they are highly experienced.
For mummies like me who have previous baby with multiple genetic condition, it's recommended to go to govt hospital, either NUH or KKH.
I decided not to go to a pte hospital first. Wanna make sure things are ok first. If now go pte hospital, if there's any complications found, they'll most likely ask you to go to KKH or NUH for their expertise and facilities, so you'll be back to govt hospital anyway.
Anyone keen to get some names of gynaes in the Maternal Fetal Medicine Dept can pm me.
