I had my pregnancy check up with Dr. Daud, from Pusrawi. When I found out that I'm pregnant, I dont't have specific gynae in mind. But most of my friends did their check up and deliver at Ampang Puteri (AP), Pantai Hospital Bangsar (PHB) and Prince Court Medical Centre (PCMC). PHB not my preference because it way too far with my house and relatives. I can't deny I wanted to deliver in PCMC but it's so expensive. My company didn't cover for any maternity-pregnancy-related matters, so bye-bye PCMC. Lots of friends and relatives chose AP, but I just don't have the feelings though.
I wanted to try Columbia Asia Hospital, Setapak. 10 minutes from home but it just open and being me thinking too much, Im afraid the facilities are not fully equipped. So, I did asked around, and I heard Pusrawi promoted breastfeeding and of course Islamic compliance. We decided to give a try, see how it goes on first check up. Few colleagues recommended Dr. Daud but I just feel that I want to see female gynae and I chose Dr. Habibah. She's okay, very soft but didn't explain much if we don't ask any. After 1st visit, my hubs and I decided to continue with Dr. Habibah. Until 1 day during Ramadhan, I slipped on my side and urgently need to check on my baby's condition. I'm pregnant at 2-months by that time. Unfortunately, Dr.Habibah on leave that day and I asked to meet any female gynae. Hubs then said why don't we try Dr. Daud since my MIL pun dulu bersalin with Dr. Daud. Ever since then, we decided that Dr. Daud would be our gynae. He explained everything a first mother should know, very details siap lukis bagai. The best part is he just love to scan the baby for a long time. Best dapat tengok baby lama-lama. Suka bebel cakap laju-laju tapi tahan je la telinga. He's damn good and a pious man. Ada tafsir Quran tebal on his desk. Tenang sikit hati. Hee.
During my checkup, I did asked about the package but they don't have it. Semua charge 1-1. I'm worried jugak, since self-paying takut tak termampu. Macam semua orang nak bersalin normal kan, I pun wanted normal delivery. Inshaallah. But when I heard a friend of mine bersalin normal kat Pusrawi kena charge sampai 6K (sebab dia dalam.labour room almost 2days.labour room nye charge kan mahal), I jadi risau..and start thinking nk opt to Ampang Puteri ja, sebab kat sana ada package. Atleast boleh budget kan? The good thing about my company is, kalau ceaser dorang cover pulak. So, takyah risau that part. Sampai la I pergi last week checkup, the receptionist passed me the Pakej Bersalin leaflet. Thank God. They decided to have the package back. Atleast I boleh agak/budget duet for it kan? So, I think I just need to share the price range here, so senang sikit nak survey kan. In fact, package at Pusrawi, slightly cheaper than Ampang Puteri. Cumanya according to my colleague, kalau tak bernasib baek bilik single full, kena bilik berdua or berempat, husband tak dapat teman malam-malam. Hee. So, worst case thing, hubs kena check-in at Putra Hotel, next to Pusrawi la gamaknya. Hee. Fikir jauh I ne. Harapnya during my time, single room available la nanti.
Now, I need to focus..to prepare myself mentally, physically and spiritually. Hmmm, kadang-kadang baca pengalaman orang bersalin memang cuak habes. Hishhh
