    Doctor's fees

    Anyone else delivering at a private hospital? I'm wondering if you could share what the fees are like.

    For HK Sanatorium in a private room (they only let you room in with the baby in a private room) the charges are:

    28k for 2 nights/3 days normal delivery
    32k for in-house O&G delivery fees

    wasabibunny, have you checked the hospitals' websites? All have a breakdown of charges.

    There are so many variables - types of rooms, types of delivery, etc.

    I'd say that if you are seeing a private OB/GYN and delivering in a private hospital, you'll need to budget for at least $75k for all your pre-natal checks.

    A friend of mine delivered at St. Paul's in Causeway Bay which was a lot more reasonable. Their service is better than public but nothing akin to the Matilda or Adventist.

    Do a search for previous threads on similar topics, too.

    Good luck.

    snoopy,

    yes I think the total cost is quite outrageous but I hope it will be a good experience. I also hope to have a natural birth with out an epidural so that will cut down on costs.

    Canossa with Dr. Lam Yung Hang

    I'm very likely going private and delivering at Canossa in Central.

    The costs are like this:

    Normal Delivery for Doctor (ward room): $16,000
    Room for 3 days (3 person per room): $14,000
    Epidual: $10,000
    Baby Hearing Test: $400
    Baby Paediatrician: $5000 (or you can request your own)

    Total minimum: $45,400

    That's the minimum, but of course there are many unpredictable factors. Ie: emergency C-section, forceps etc

    Hope this helps. Btw, I've tried calling Sanitorium, they are all booked for March 2009 deliveries, ditto on Matilda. WHAT?!

    Lisa,

    Are you sure they are fully booked for all room types? When I booked my roon at 12 weeks I was told by HK Sanatorium that their Semi-private rooms are ususally booked up but private and general wards have less bookings. Good luck!

    Hi Lii,

    I will be delivering at Canossa in March too! I could not get into HK Sanatorium too, they said that they were fully booked for a long time! Hats off to all the mummie who knew that they were pregnant right from the start.

    It is a bit nuts. I'm due next March and when I went for my first OB appnt back in end-July (I was just barely 6 weeks along), my doctor asked me if I had chosen my hospital (Matilda) and if so, he would book me in right away. At that point, the Matilda was still taking bookings for March but apparently it was already full for February!
