Prices of a childbirth in Singapore

03 Aug 2017

It is not easy to estimate the insurance you need to cover your maternity in Singapore. The cost of giving birth here could be doubled – depending on the type of hospital you choose to stay at (whether private/public), the type of room selected (private, ward A-C) and even on the kind of delivery you decide on (C-section or normal birth). 

Listed below are the average costs for child delivery at different hospitals in Singapore. Note that these prices cover delivery, but not the consultations made during the pregnancy.

On average, a young mother would stay in hospital for at least 2-3 days.We strongly advise you to get advance confirmation that your gynecologist will be able to perform your delivery in the hospital of your choice. Cases like these happen frequently: where mothers-to-be would like to have their child delivered in a public hospital, but are instead required to give birth at the private hospital their chosen gynecologist is associated with.
