    Red face Need Help from experience Mother

    HI All
    I am very new in Hong kong ,Me and my husband just relocated from Singapore only 2 months and just found out that I am pregnant 7 weeks.
    I went first appointment with DR Coral and she manage to get the St paul for my deliver (my due is first week of Jan 2012) her first appointment is fine but total bill was 2,8000 (consult+blood test+4Dscan+vitamins) not sure if this is normal price because we don't have insurance and after we check her deliver cost she charge as for private room about 50K and still other expense daily add on.
    Can anyone advise if this is the same cost that you are paying or she a bit expensive
    or anyone know other doctor who delivery in St Paul and is he or she could be cheaper than DR Coral. however we also think if this is the first child and if we no other choice then we should continue with her
    please share what your experience
    Thank you a lot

    i'm thinking the blood test might have made up the bulk of your payment. when i check with my doctor the fee is normally around 1700 which includes consultation and scan (800 for consult, 900 for scan)vitamins should only come to around 100...i'd go to her again -you shouldn't be getting blood tests each time so the cost should only go lower for the next sessions.

    I think you should get a break down of the fees then it is easier to compare? Lesiefu is right, the next bill should be lower.

    Are you both Singaporean? Well, I'm a Singaporean too. A bit lost touch of what's happening at home. Have a baby here in HK last year and she's nearly 8 months now.

    im singaporean :)
    why do u need 4d scan?
    yes blood test costs most of the bill. some tests are unnecessary, do be sure to ask your doc what scan she is doing before committing. and ask her if it's necessary. i did this with my gynae who was pushing us to do all kinds of scans.

    Hi Pixelelf
    Thank you for your comments I am not sure as well as we both not really know anything much .. maybe i will ask her next time as she asking me to see every 2 weeks until 12 weeks (now going to 8 weeks on next monday)not sure if necessary to do that.
    consult is 1000 , blood test 1000 , scan 600 , vitamins 200 that total 2800 hope to get lower next time. ha ha
    May I ask which Gynae you using ?

    you could go through the public system and the entire pregnancy AND delivery will set you back about $1000...
