    Syl, you might want to clarify it with the Matilda, as this $20K deposit up front is a new policy effective today so things might be different.

    But when I delivered at the Matilda last April, they used to require a $20K deposit when you were admitted to the hospital (or a charge of that amt on a credit card). We however got our insurance company to provide a letter of guarantee to the Matilda outlining how much they would cover for the birth and this was sufficient in lieu of the deposit.

    Hi Swedishmum,

    I am 14 weeks pregnant and seeing Dr Alex Doo and got a confirmed booking at the Matilda when I was 9 weeks. He's a resident at the hospital also. I've been told I don't have to pay any deposit.

    If you want a Doctor who is friendly with a good bedside manner, then I definitely recommend Dr Doo.

    Good luck with everything.

    I am also pregnant due in July 09, Matilda is booked out until Aug 09, as far as I know you need to wait until either a miscarriage or someone cancels. My Dr also delivers at The Adventist hospital which I was able to get a place, I think the hospital is the major issue if you are looking for a gyno.

    I went in for my follow up on the 4th and I was still waitlisted for Matilda, but apparently a little pressure is all that's needed to confirm a bed.

    With the same confidence demonstrated last September, Dr. Lord reassured me that getting a bed would be ok. It only took her 3 days to prove it.

    Hi there I'm due on April 10th and I'm just about to go to Hong kong this week to find a doctor and give birth there. So does this mean that It's already impossible for me to give birth in Matilda?
