    Delivery and doctor charges

    Hello. Could you please guide about the charges that I need to expect for delivery in Private hospital. We have chosen St. Paul's hospital and they have quite reasonable charges for rooms in the 'package'. However, I heard that there are additional charges to a doctor about the same price like as for hospital room package. Is that common in Hong Kong that I have to pay for delivery package and + doctor delivery fee? (For example Is there the same system in public hospitals?

    Hi Ann,

    Here's a list of the private hospital charges

    Private Hospital Maternity Packages in Hong Kong 2015 - Hong Kong GeoBaby

    The maternity packages don't include the Drs fees. Your OBGYN and Anaesthetist. These fees increase if you select a private room vs a ward bed. Also doesn't include epidural.

    Public hospitals have packages for their private rooms. If you select to go the public route and stay in the ward expect to pay less than $500 for the entire delivery.

    Have a read through this article

    Hi Rani, thank you for feedback. Could you please guide if I go through the public system , which hospital is better with English speaking staff and normal delivery. I worry also if I have dependent visa, non-permanent Hkid - am I generally eligible?

    As long as you have an ID card, you can use the public system. Unfortunately you have to register at the clinic/hospital closest to you an can't choose. Here's a list of clinics

    Princess Margaret is where you will deliver and the majority of the prenatal appts will take place at Tsing Yi.

    Hi Rani

    With regards to your reply shown below, I am trying to understand the total cost at Matilda if I have a pre booked c section in standard room. Do you mean I have the package Matilda cost plus my obstetrician who will deliver? You mention doctor as well, can I please clarify which doctor this would be? Sorry I'm confused!

    The maternity packages don't include the Drs fees. Your OBGYN and Anaesthetist. These fees increase if you select a private room vs a ward bed. Also doesn't include epidural.
