    my doctor is charging 8K (ward room) vs 16K (private room) for anesthesia/epidural.

    He said when I decide which hospital and what type of room, he will take care of everything.

    It's crazy how everything adds up. And there are surcharges for weekend/public holiday births!

    Mingaling, just FYI Matilda was very backed up when i contacted them earlier this year to schedule a visit... the next availability was ~5 weeks out. We call up Sanatorium and Adventist and were able to visit the next day.

    This also happened to me, I called and left a message to arrange a tour at Matilda, never received a returned phone call. So I emailed through and they got back to me with the first available time which is the next 5-6 weeks. There's no way I could of waited that long for just a tour as I needed to decide on a hospital, waiting 5-6 weeks would delay everything and I probably wouldn't get a bed within my preference. HK Sanatorium was very easy, as long as the rooms are free they always welcome you to see the rooms for a quick tour.

    Canossa is also an option. Is anyone familiar with Canossa hospital?

    I think it's hard to get a tour at Matilda because there is only one lady handling the tours/communications/customer relations department.

    What is the point of a "tour"??? You are going to stay there for 2-4 days only!
    I understand going to a school tour for your young ones, but for a "room tour"??? Never heard of something like this outside of Hong Kong.

    @ Pumi26 - a private room at a private hospital charges about $50000+ for a few days, it would be nice to see the room first before my husband and I make a final decision. Yes, it is only a few days, but its also one of the most important days of my life (you don't give birth everyday) so we would like to try to make the experience a nice/comfortable one.

    Yep, and if you can't decide which hospital then a tour would definitely help. You get to see the facilities they provide, how they operate and meet the team/midwives.
