Baby Discharged and Looking Good!

Today I called her ward and the doctor said her jaundice dropped to 155 and baby is doing fine, she also said baby can discharge so I quickly called my wife to pick her up.

Two days of not seeing baby and I miss her already haha, today when I saw her I am very happy, her cute little face make me smile ;)

Hi, I've been looking around for the cost if a foreigner have plans to give birth in Sinagpore. Just to check if my wife (LTVP) holder, wants to give birth in sg, what are the potential cost we are looking at? $15k?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Peter,

First of all, if she is LTVP (the normal one without the + behind), she will not be eligible for any subsidy so she will be charged private rate even if you go to government hospital.

You can refer to this link for normal delivery: https://www.moh.gov.sg/content/moh_web/home/costs_and_financing/HospitalBillSize/delivery_normal.html

This for c-section: https://www.moh.gov.sg/content/moh_web/home/costs_and_financing/HospitalBillSize/delivery_caesareansection.html

However note that those are for non-complicated cases, if your wife/baby develop problem, the bill could sharply increase, don't forget baby will be charged the ward class as your wife's ward class, so don't choose higher ward class, for me, I would get the lowest possible class just to be safe.

I know every husband want the best for their wife and baby, but don't let one comfortable hospital stay burn all your savings, anyway A class is not really that awesome, it's just aircon and more privacy, but the money you are paying is probably the same as (or more than) 5* hotel stay so it's really not worth it, hospital stay can never be as comfortable as hotel stay, unless you have personal nurse, personal doctor, personal attendant then different story.

But you should set aside cash for deposit and top-ups if your medisave is not enough to cover. I think $10k-$15k is good enough.

I wish you the best for you and family.
