Antenatal Check-ups at Gov Clinic or Private Hospital :My Story (part 2)


Baiklah, ini sambungan entry sebelum ni (terpaksa buat 2 entry sbb takut pjg sgt).. I already told u why we opted for a private hospital for our first child. And when we found out that we are expecting our second, my hubs ckp better go for private jugak la.. And ramai yg ckp2 kenapa g private, tak g gov clinic/hosp je..ada sebabnya kan (sila baca entry sebelum ni)..ada yg ckp kami ni perasan kaya la, nk menunjuk la..ya Allah, anda tak rasa apa yg sy rasa..dy dh serik ditolak ke hulu hilir oleh nurse2 tu..Biarlah kan org nk kata apa..

Ada sebabnya kami decided terus ke private hospital for our 2nd baby..

1) Our appointment with our ob-gynae is on Saturday..utk org yg baru dpt tetap and payah cuti, this is the best option..kalo klinik gov, u have to come on weekdays which is a big problem to me..mmg la ada annual leave bagai, tapi I only earn 1 day a memandangkan baru keja ni, berapa je cuti yg sy dpt sepanjang 1 thn bekerja..tolak cuti yg terpaksa guna sbb anak sakit , cuti raya bagi..jadi cuti mmg kosong, nk tgk angka 1 tu mmg payah..kalo ada je cuti, terpaksa guna anak sakit la itu la ini the best option is for me to have appointment on Saturday je la..private je la yg buka klinik hari sabtu..

2) We can choose our attending ob-gynae..Seriously, this is the main reason why my hubs insists on going to private hospitals. We get to choose our ob-gynae..kalo kat hov hosp selalubya duorg akan assign mana2 doctor yg ada je la..
our first ob-gynae was Dr.Habibah..i like her..very motherly..and she drives an Audi (stalker kan)…for our second child ni, we choose Dr.Norshidah kat Cloumbia Asia Cheras (Balakong)..i like her too..very warm, friendly and far, dia mmg byk membantu everytime we see shaa Allah, Dr.Norshidah akan sambut kelahiran baby no 2 ni..

3) Husband is allowed in the labor room..this is also our main reason for choosing private hospitals..selalunya kalo bersalin kat gov ni, husband takleh masuk..i think ada je gov hospital yg boleh tapi tak semua la husband was there when I gave birth to my first child. He gave me strength and hope that I needed. He was the one who taught me how to push, hot to count my breathing..he was afraid to be there at first, but he said when he saw his son’s hair, he suddenly felt excited and thrilled. So he kept on asking me to push and push and him, it was definitely an experience he will never forget, an eye opener to how difficult and painful it is to give birth. He said he now knows why mothers are special and amazing...

4) The environment. To be honest, I am one person yg mmg agak cerewet..everything has to be according to my way of arranging ke, organizing bila kat private hospital ni, there’s a guaranteed privacy.. 5) Lastly the cost..not that I think it is cheaper..what I mean is that we don’t really have to fork out our own money pun..semuanya company hubs yg tanggung, from antenatal check-ups to the delivery and to the post-natal check-up..we just have to call the hospital or the company’s insurance provide for GL..itu je..tu yg my hubs ckp kita g private je la dgn muka gembiranya..rupanya sbb dia tak yah kuarkan duit pun..well, maybe kena tmbh sikit la..tu pun utk charges masa bersalin sbb i think he said the GL only covers up to 2.5k ke 3k ntah..

U see, there’s a reason why we opt for private hospitals.
