    Hi, I am giving birth at the Union Hostital in Sha Tin and it's private.

    I'm with Dr. Fok ( lovely lady)
    Prenatal package: $6,500 ( 12 visits and basic scans)
    Twin Room 3 day package for normal delivery: $17,000
    Dr Fok delivery fee: around $15,000 maybe less
    Epidural ( better budget in case..) $8,000?
    Pediatrician if needed est. up to $8,000

    Total is $54,500.

    Depends where you live but it's not too far by MTR if you are from the Isalnd. I live in SaiKung so handy for me.

    Private room is much more expensive as they have just built a new ward and you need to pay a bigger package ( $27,000 for natural delivery) PLUS room charges so total will then easily exceed $100,000These Private rooms start at $2,300 per day and there is only one at this price,the rest ar more expensive.

    I just had an elective c section (5 nights) at the Matilda and the final bill for everything, not including prenatal visits, was $115,000. This included my husbands meals for 6 days, pediatrician, anesthesiologist, vaccinations, my drugs, wireless internet, and ob/gyn. Ob/gyn was expensive but I have a VERY small incision and a big baby so worth it. The Matilda was honestly worth every penny and I'd spend it again.

    Unhappy

    woodk6 - was your c-section elective ? I am likely loooking at having mine on a Sunday (in Maltilda) and I hear this would be considered an emergency and therefore priced as such. Not sure how much more this would set me back?

    You wrote that Dr Fok is a 'lovely lady'. Could you tell me more about your experience with her? I'm desperately looking for a new female Ob/Gyn in the Shatin area. I have an appointment with Dr Linna Liauw in 2 weeks' time, but not heard of anyone visiting her. After an unpleasant experience with my last female Ob/Gyn, I'd love to know who else is around
    Many thanks for your advice!

    konradsmom - I hate to correct myself but my husband just told me that our bill was closer to $135,000. Though my ob/gyn was $55,000 of that which is expensive from what I can tell. Yes it would be considered emergency on a Sunday just for pricing reasons - I think it's $10,000 more. However the anesthesiologist, pediatrician and your ob/gyn are also likely to charge you a Sunday premium on top of that so best to find out from them in advance what it is! Good luck. Again the Matilda is worth it!

    Thanks for the info - I think for me,it will be much more than 135,000 you had to pay, but am comforted by your opinion that its worth it. My Obs just told me that the Adventist has raised its prices and is now more expensive than Matilda, so probably the Matilda is the right choice after all. Thanks again. :)

    The Adventist charges are online.

    The Matilda Charges are here:

    Looks like a C-section at the Adventist is now more than the Matilda. Thanks Konradsmom for the heads-up!
