    The obgyn said the pediatrician assigned to me will be the one on duty then. I did not choose and was fine with that because I didn't interview any beforehand. My daughter's ped is Angela Lau and she's great, we really like her.

    I have heard of other mothers choosing own ped and having him there for the birth in Matilda, but I don't know full details.

    We also had extra fees because we opted to have hearing test, vit K injection, etc.. for my daughter.

    Hi catan. I'm seriously thinking of having my baby's hearing tested too. What exactly does the test involve? Who performs the test? And how much is the test?

    The nurses perform the hearing test, takes a few minutes with an equipment they stick to the baby, easy and painfree. Let me check my bill for the cost.

    Hiya, not sure why the bill for my boy didn't have the breakdown for the hearing test, but I looked back to my daughter's bill in 2009, Matilda charged hkd450 then. Hope that helps.
