    Hi pixelelf,

    May I know how long did u stay at SG after you gave birth? Is it ok to bring the new born back to HK immediately or after one month confinement? Do you all know is there any Confinement centre in SG? Thank you!

    good luck!

    Hi pixelelf,

    can i know how long did u stay at SG after you gave birth your 1st baby? Is is ok to bring the new born 1 week after born or probably after the one month confinement? Does anyone know if there is any confinement centre in SG? Thank you!

    I am delivering at Gleneagles in Singapore in about 2 weeks - c-section. It will cost me about $8-9K SGD to deliver there with a 3 night hospital stay which I personally think is quite high. We were thought it would be around $6K. I have a confinement nanny coming to my house for 28 days. I am not sure how early you can travel with a newborn, but I assume you would not want to do it any earlier than 6 weeks...ideally 8 weeks for health reasons.

    i delivered with tmc, private room, c sec, cost about SGD$2k+ then i think. will be going back there with the same doc, paul tseng. i did not use any confinement nannies as my dad has knowledge of such things and i had a helper back then to help out. this time round, i am also not going to use any confinement nannies and will be bringing my helper over to help around :)

    i brought my first born over when he was 6 weeks. no problem.

    FYI - the hospital stay itself if in a private room at gleneagles for 3 nights is $3,600 SGD which doesn't include your doctor's services so I would think min is $5-6K SGD at Gleaneagles.

    Cara, I'm considering taking my baby back to my home country after a month or so. Just wondering - how did you manage the vaccination schedule? I understand in the public system in HK they give a couple of doses at birth and the follow-up dose has to happen in a month. Also, was it easy to complete the birth registration, passport, visa for baby etc within 5 weeks?
