The Bossy Flossie family recently grew by one with new recruit little Jammy! My little cherub is now seven weeks old and, mercifully, his delivery is fast becoming a foggy memory. The labour was both a joyful and a traumatic experience. I am so glad I chose to give birth at NUH, as discussed in an earlier post. The nurses were great, the facilities were modern, and the final medical bill did not horrify.
Singapore is a very expensive country to have a baby. Especially if you are a foreigner without international insurance. At the time of writing this, I am 38 weeks pregnant. Here is my experience of the healthcare system in Singapore, a breakdown of prenatal costs, and a summary of insurance options. Ultimately, I have chosen to deliver at NUH due to the great service and some financial considerations.
