    The hearing test isn't included? At public I think it's mandatory and included. What do you mean there's a 2 hour wait to get into public. If you're dilated at 3cm...you go straight to your delivery suite with your hubby.

    Yes, it's helpful. Thanks!

    My bill for newborn fees at Matilda was $7600. Ped charged $6800 and the rest was ward procedures. My baby had the BCG and Hep B vaccines, vit K, and hearing test.

    Thanks for the info catan. Even with the hospital's and doctor's schedule of charges, it's amazing how difficult it is to come up with an accurate estimate of the final bill.

    I know!

    From the moment of check-in until check-out, they will ask/give you all sorts of things and you don't know what is being charged for or not. I am not sure if the newborn fees change according to your room type like obgyn fees are... but I'll add that I was in a private room.

    I think newborn fees do vary according to the class of room you select at the hospital. At the very least, the paediatrician's fees do vary according to the room class.

    Thanks again for all the detailed replies! Everyone was very helpful and I have a much better idea of the possible costs now.
