Planning pregnancy and a move to Singapore

Postby Binyanas » Wed, 19 Oct 2011 9:39 am

Hi,
My husband "may" be moved to Singapore in the next 6 months. We are also planning baby #3 at the moment and have to think about the prospect of having the baby overseas. I am totally fresh on the "ins and outs" of birthing in Singapore and am hoping someone can help me out.

What are the things I need to think about?

I have had the last 2 babies at a "family birth centre" which is a midwife run, low intervention centre where the dr is only called if needed (and never has for me). I would really like the next baby to be born at a similar set up. Are there such things in Singapore? I dont want a dr and do not want to pay exorbitant fees to give birth (my babies have cost me a total of AU$500 to deliver in the public system in Australia and that was only the fees for testing).

What sort of aftercare is provided?

What insurances may I need as a non-resident?

Sorry there are so many questions.
Cheers
