    Price Lists

    I found price lists notoriously unreliable. You'll actually need to ask how much you'll be charged for a particular visit. My bill came out to be twice as much as quoted, because I had a "long" consultation instead of a "short" one, whatever that means. I guess as long as you're able to expense the bills under your employer's health plan, it won't hurt, but having had a child under the Hong Kong private system and the public system, I can unequivocally say that the public experience is so much better - more parent/child centered, more up-to-date treatment and no unpleasant financial surprises.

    Hi 'Readytobemummy' just to let you know that a few of us mummies to be are meeting a OOlah (1 Bridges Street) on Sunday 12th at 9.15am. Feel free to come and join us if you want.

    Also, i moved over from Singapore too almost 1 year ago. I miss it too, but i'm having my December baby in HK. In answer to your original question, you can have your baby delivered for very cheap using the public system (which is pretty good), or the private system (which largely varies in prices, so you would need to research different prices charged by OB GYNs and hospitals.

    Hopefully see you on Sunday where we can chat about it in more detail. Other mummies to be are most welcome to join us on Sunday too.

    My first trimester, I went all the time for scans. But I had a host of medical problems and was deemed high risk. I'm sure I was an exception. Also I think I was seeing a rather anxious doctor.
    After I switched to a more moderate doctor and safely entered the 2nd trimester, I went back to the normal once a month.
    May I ask who your doctor is?

    Hi Readytobemummy,

    I'm S'porean too..same here without any insurance cos I came in Feb and before could really settle down I'm preggy! Right now is 11 wks and each time my gynae will break down the bill so averagely is about $1,300 with consultation, scan and medication. I heard that without insurance is going to cost us a bomb. estimated HKD75k exclusive c section or any other complications.. I'm still contemplating if wanna go back SIN to deliver.

    Sorry but are 3D scans really necessary? I only had 2D scans throughout my pregnancy and only saw my doctor once every 4-5 weeks up until Week 33 or 34 then it was once every 2 weeks.

    Try asking the doctor if she does a package which covers all the hospitalization and check-ups. This way is cheaper and if you speak with her and tell her that you don't have insurance, she might lower her fees.

    I did this with my ob-gyn and got a huge discount.
