Have u register or did checkup in gov hospital before?
If not.. Easiest would be to go to ppum FPP, walk in allowed. U can even see the rooms and check booking for your edd.

FPP is also available in other public hospitals. Go Google it up. Full paying patient

you can do your check up at PPUM, PPUM+KK or PPUM+private. it is entirely up to you. normal delivery cost RM500++ and Cesarean cost RM 1000++. check up done at PPUM all stored in their computer, just in case you didn't delivery there you will not have any records in hard copy in hand if you only do your check ups at PPUM.

Hi, my choice to deliver is PPUM too. EDD mid March.
For me, I have a pink book - got from KKIA checkup. KKIA nurse wrote a referral letter to PPUM.
After that can go to PPUM and make a booking. Press "B" on machine to get the queue ticket. Do remember to bring pink book along. The first visit is basically to set a date for next visit which includes registration, consultation and ultrasound scan.

Hi
Is this ur wife’s blog. May I ask if the rm500 is a deposit for delivery or the fees for consultation ?

As far as I know KKIA is free for checkups and blood test then only towards 7-8th mth we go checkup at ppukm am I right ?

Also can the husband be in the delivery room if ur wife deliver and also can the husband stay overnight at the hospital wif the wife after delivery ?

No, it is not my wife's blog, by 5mths pregnancy you should already make appointment to deliver there. 7-8 mths too late already. If I'm not mistaken, normal birth, husband can enter the labor room but cannot stay overnight. PPUM very strict with this procedure. The easiest way is to call the clinic directly 0379492715

I got the referral letter from KKIA at week28. Went there the first time to make appointment only.
First checkup at PPUM was at week30. Am still going back to KKIA for checkup now.
Have you registered in PPUM already? The RM500 deposit is for delivery purpose.

Hi !
All of our 6 babies were born in UM with 5 in UMSC (Specialist wing) and the last one in PPUM. In my case, we followed the gynae and yupe, cost also plays an important part in deciding where to deliver your miracle hehe. PPUM is actually on the same floor as UMSC and other than you can't choose the attending doc who will receive your baby plus the difference in costs, there is not so much difference between UMSC and PPUM. On the cost though, there has been a steady increase for UMSC since 2008 till now. My first daughter was born in 2008 with a total cost of RM2200 for a 3 days 2 night stay versus my 5th boy who was born in 2016 with a total cost of RM5500 for a 1 day no night stay hahah. My last daughter born last year in 2018 at PPUM costs only RM450++.

For registration, you need the buku merah klinik kesihatan from your klinik kesihatan and go register at PPUM as usual. Crowd wise you can't complaint much but one thing I find dificult is the parking. God damn hard to find a parking in PPUM. It costs too. Other than that, I think all is good hehe.

Goodluck.

Good choice choosing PPUM. Had my 1st one there, and going to have the 2nd there soon too. The nurses in maternity ward do a commendable job. And i heard they allow spouse to be beside during delivery now. In 2016 for my 1st one, they did not.

Me and wife just made our booking to deliver at PPUM today. Wife is currently 14 weeks pregnant but in fact you can make your booking from 12th week onwards. Appointment for April and May is all taken so our first appointment with doctor will be in June, so my advise is make your booking early or else you will be denied to deliver in PPUM.

All these while we did our checkup at private clinic, so not necessary to have the buku merah, just get all the scan reports and if possible, a referral letter from your private clinic doctor. Bring all your documents and head to Klinik Ginekologi. It's a bit of walking from the parking lot.

Arrived at klinik ginekologi and there's already a huge crowd at 8:30am. Press B on the machine to get a queueing number and was pleasant to find out there's only 4 person ahead of us, so waited for about 20 mins, submit the reports and chose our first appointment date with doctor. Together we have to make booking for an ultrasound scan.

Overall everything was good, and got to know husband will be able to accompany wife into the labour room now.

Hi .

I am 36 weeks pregnant and still unclear where to deliver .

My first choice was Al - Islam Medical Centre . Due to highly suggested by friends and also the price . They charge RM 2300 - 2500 depending on the room . Also the room is on availability as they do not have much single room . Cons : They do not have paediatric / neonatal ICU .

Then , my second choice and current choice is FPP Putrajaya . We were staying with my mother in law at Bangi thus , this hospital is very suitable with us . I must admit that the appointment and booking is very hard to get . We were lucky that there was only 1 slot for my due date ; 6th June 2019 . Cons : now am staying at setiawangsa and scared that we wont make it to the fpp .

So , few friends suggested PPUM . What stopping me from making the booking are the husband is not allow to overnight and also , scared no more slot .

Confuse lor

Hey there. I think it's safe to remove PPUM from your list as their appointment with doctor is all taken up until Mid June. I know because me and wife were there to make our booking for delivery on Monday. Wife is on the 15th week anyway.

Hey there. No we're not from government and as far as I know PPUM does not offer FPP. Our first appointment with doctor will be on 13th June and by then we'll have to put down RM500 deposit.

Our second baby were delivered at PPUM, had to go for induce due to baby size. Total cost was around rm700.
Wife had to stay there for 2 night, and no phone allowed, so can only get update by calling the labour ward.

Btw I missed the delivery as they called called me up quite late. Wife went into labour at 4pm, but they called me at 4.30pm and by the time I reach hospital at 4.50pm, all done.

Hi there, I had a good impression on PPUM. Was being warded at 4 bedrooms - nurses was helpful. You cannot choose your preferred doctor as they are on shifts. But at the same time a lot of housemens around to keep you and your baby safe and sound.

What is your concern on choosing PPUM? You may address it here - I try to answer with what I can remember. You may need to make appointment and deposit at week 28 to 'secure' your place there. Remember to bring your pink book along.

I have notice some inaccurate information on the above posts.

Correct info are as follows.
1) booking can be made at PPUM klinik antenatal counter as soon as you know you are pregnant. Just bring what ever photo/report from private clinic or pink book if you went to Klinik Kesihatan earlier. No referral letter is required.
2) first check up appointment is usually 2 months later from your booking date.
3) need to pay RM500 deposit + RM 31 registration during first check up. Inborn Error of Metabolism Test (RM80 - Optional) payable during first appointment if you wish to do it when your baby is born later.
4) earliest first check up appointment will be in July 2019 now.

For the first point, is it true? Because we called twice to confirm and both operator told us the same thing - which is 12th week and above. I suppose this could be their SOP because within the first 12 weeks miscarriage is common so they wanna reduce the risks.

Just walk in and get a number. Wait for your queue and pass them your pink book or ultrasound images. Blue card also for UM patients. Sure they won’t reject you. NT scan or Down syndrome scan will be done at UM for those who booked earlier. Each ultrasound scan only cost you RM20.

bear in mind that they will give you a booking form. after receive the booking form, you need to go to ultrasound department for scan appointment and they will give you an appointment form for ultrasound. in short, you have to be there personally.

Hi,

Thanks for the helpful info. May i know if i can just make an appointment via UMSC’s website itself? Or do I need to make a phone call to make an appointment? Or do I need to walk in to register? I am planning to deliver there and have been going for check ups at another private hospital.

Thanks.

I don't think you can make your appointment other than being there yourself.

Booking is usually 2 months in advance, so if you book now your appointment will be somewhere in August. Book early to avoid risk of being denied service.

Okay. Noted with thanks. I realised there’s an option to make an appointment via the website itself. So wondering can i just make the appointment straight there for first timer. I’ll give them a call first then.

Hi,

Thanks for the helpful info. May i know if i can just make an appointment via UMSC’s website itself? Or do I need to make a phone call to make an appointment? Or do I need to walk in to register? I am planning to deliver there and have been going for check ups at another private hospital.

Thanks.

UMSC- University Malaya Specialist Center is the private hospital, i think u can make appointment via phone call. Your bill can compete with Sunway Medical Center.

You’re right. I just called them up to make an appointment and asked them about the charges. Not much difference from Sunway Medical Center :/

I think you posted at the wrong thread. UMSC is the private wing, UMMC/PPUM is the half private half gov and this thread is for PPUM.

Hi !
All of our 6 babies were born in UM with 5 in UMSC (Specialist wing) and the last one in PPUM. In my case, we followed the gynae and yupe, cost also plays an important part in deciding where to deliver your miracle hehe. PPUM is actually on the same floor as UMSC and other than you can't choose the attending doc who will receive your baby plus the difference in costs, there is not so much difference between UMSC and PPUM.  On the cost though, there has been a steady increase for UMSC since 2008 till now. My first daughter was born in 2008 with a total cost of RM2200 for a 3 days 2 night stay versus my 5th boy who was born in 2016 with a total cost of RM5500 for a 1 day no night stay hahah. My last daughter born last year in 2018 at PPUM costs only RM450++.

For registration, you need the buku merah klinik kesihatan from your klinik kesihatan and go register at PPUM as usual. Crowd wise you can't complaint much but one thing I find dificult is the parking. God damn hard to find a parking in PPUM. It costs too. Other than that, I think all is good hehe.

Goodluck.

The cost you mention is Natural delivery or operation?

I have notice some inaccurate information on the above posts.

Correct info are as follows.
1) booking can be made at PPUM klinik antenatal counter as soon as you know you are pregnant. Just bring what ever photo/report from private clinic or pink book if you went to Klinik Kesihatan earlier. No referral letter is required.
2) first check up appointment is usually 2 months later from your booking date.
3) need to pay RM500 deposit + RM 31 registration during first check up. Inborn Error of Metabolism Test (RM80 - Optional) payable during first appointment if you wish to do it when your baby is born later.
4) earliest first check up appointment will be in July 2019 now.

Would like to confirm that once the first appointment is made, subsequently all the necessary check ups and delivery can be done in PPUM right (just wondering if there is any things that can't be done in PPUM)? Thank you:)

not necessary to do check up at PPUM, but we prefer to do it there because hospital is still better than KK with greater facilities. Especially if you have any complications during pregnancy. Nothing can't be done at PPUM so far except 4d, 5d, 6d scan. You can do normal ultrasound, NT scan, anomaly scan, OGTT and etc. there.

Risk is there always. previously few Covid 19 death cases were occurred in PPUM. as far as I know, all the government hospital not allow husband to accompany wife during labor anymore. previously PPUM does allow husband to go in to the labour room. not sure about now. in fact, they cancelled all appointments for three months and focusing solely on Covid 19 treatments.

I suggest you book an appointment asap. They are accepting new patients but limited. They may have relaxed their restrictions a bit now though.

They've started taking bookings again since CMCO kicked in, I managed to book mine on 12 May and already went for 1st appointment in June. In your case your wife is in 6th month already, high time to go and book.

Dear all, I'm also wondering couple of things, would appreciate if you could share your experience:

1. I was told that the ones who receive your baby in the cases without complications are Medical Officers, not the higher ranking and more experienced professors, even if you do checkups with one during last months of pregnancy. Supposedly they only step in when there are any complications. How has your experience been with MOs?

2. I was also told they give you hospital robes and you are not allowed to wear your own clothes instead, is that true? blink.gif Supposedly you can only wear something underneath, like warm pants and cardigan (bc allegedly it's quite cold in the wards), but you can't opt to just wear your own stuff.

3. Are husbands now allowed to be with the wife during the delivery? I forgot to ask the doctor last time. I'm ok if they are not allowed to stay overnight - I'd rather my husband goes home and sleeps/rests, but he wants to be present during the delivery.

4. Are phones still not allowed in wards?? That's preposterous blink.gif

-------------------

Oh, and btw, for those whom this info could be useful, Malaysian deposit is not RM500 anymore, it's RM1000, and for foreigners, it's RM5000. I have also a standard service price list somewhere if interested, latest information received on 3 June 2020.

Answers:
1) Yes, it will be assigned randomly irregardless of team.
2) Yes
3) Allowed before MCO, after MCO not sure. I heard all government hospital also disallowed during MCO.
4) Phones are allowed at Ward, not labour room. Charging are not allowed.

1. True. Havent deliver yet but I was informed that I have a very low risk pregnancy, so it will be handled by MO.
2. Yes. The nurse ask me to just bring 1 set of clothes for discharge. You are not supposed to wear own clothing in the ward she said.
3. Asked about it last week. Husband not allowed during delivery. Not even into the wards after delivery. If husband bring food he will just pass it to nurse. The reason is to avoid crowd in ward and social distancing. However husband can see baby from nursery at a distance they say.
4. As far as i know phones are not allowed in delivery wards. After delivery not sure.

No, u cant have the option to C-sec unless dc recommend you to do so. They will try their very best for you to go in natural. Unless complications or breech which don't allow to go in natural.

Hi, I have been visiting Klinik KK since 3 months pregnancy and now I have decided to deliver in PPUM (5 months pregnant now). My first appointment in PPUM is around July, however, I was wondering is it necessary to go KKIA AND PPUM? I thought is either one. Or we can discuss with KKIA or PPUM to go either one? Please advise dearest mummies. Thank you.

You can go to either one but if you want to deliver in PPUM and especially if you have complications, its better to just go to PPUM. It doesnt make sense to go do your check ups in 2 places. But yoi need to inform your KK that you will be continuing you antenatal checks in PPUM. You will need to inform them when you've delivered as well.

From my experience, KK wasnt as thorough as PPUM was but i also have a few pregnancy complications and had to be admitted 2 weeks before my scheduled CS.

Good luck and congratulations!

I have the same question too. Can we just go either one?
Feel so tired to wait at KK.
It took me 2hours to get 2appointments date only at PPUM. I would prefer to spend time at one place if can.

Go both. PPUM always ask me for KK record and KK always ask me what PPUM checked.

But please attend all PPUM's checkup if you are going to deliver in PPUM. They normally need me to stay there half a day and do a lot of checking. Plus during covid, PPUM only give me appointment every 6 weeks. PPUM ultrasound is also much clearer and detail than KK.

Nurses are there 24/7 if you need help. my wife delivered at PPUM last January and she stayed there alone.
The nurses will come frequently to assist you whenever needed, they also will assist you during breastfeeding.

Hi sir, do you mind to share the total cost of your wife delivery?she undergo normal delivery or czer?
*
yes, normal with 1 night stay. no epidural tho.
the cost is less than 1k. i cant remember the exact amount but should be around rm950.00
you need to place a deposit of RM1k when you register for the first time. the deposit will be refunded if you decided to go somewhere else, provided the baby is born and submit the birth cert for the refund.

from my experience, yes. as it is a university hospital. u might need to bear with this.

sent my wife in at 1AM. you can't go in during this time as doctor will diagnose the situation first. bring all documents necessary including your deposit receipt during admission. don't need to bring anything else.

i was told that i need to stay at lobby area in case they need anything from me. i came without any preparation, so stay up for the entire night sitting on the bench at lobby. better prepare urself with travel pillow, power bank. and bear in mind, lobby got lots of mosquitos.

i was called in at 7AM when my wife had 4cm opening. this is the crucial time (at least for me). did not bring anything to the labor room except mineral water and dates as energy booster. wife was provided with some snacks and milo. just request from the doctor and nurses.
u will be asked to turn off you phone in front of the nurses at the counter, you will need to be with your wife until she ready to deliver. no go in and out from the room, so if u are smoking person, smoke enough before go in to the labor room biggrin.gif

everything settled at 10.47am. the nurses, doctors are pro active, monitoring my wife all the time, we were not left alone at any second as they periodically changing staff to be with u at all time.

after delivery, they cleaned up the baby, and gave back to my wife. the baby stayed on the my wife chest for an hour - called it skin to skin session. this is the best moment for both of us. i curi-curi took photos and videos at this time. after that, they sent us to the ward. then only i get other stuffs from the car.

this is my experience as first time parent .

Hi everyone, thanks so much for your information.

My wife and I are expecting our first baby. We are so lost before looking at this thread.

Wonder if anyone can answer us:

1) If we successfully make booking with PPUM, do we still need to go back to KKIA for follow ups?

2) If so, why would you recommend that? (as it seems repetitive to go for check ups in the 2 places?)

3) Will you suggest buying pregnancy insurance? Will it cover caesarean / epidural costs for private hospitals?

A1) Theoretical and practically you don't have to go back to KKIA for follow ups. If you walk in straight to PPUM upon confirmation of positive pregnancy, they you can make your booking and do every check up there and no pink book will be given. All records will be computerized, in case your wife failed to deliver there then you will have problem because no written records for other doctors to refer. If you have opened your pink book at KKIA, I'm doubt they will let you go and most likely you will have to follow up at both places.

A2) There are no such thing as repetitive. It is matter of whether you can afford to follow up it at different places as it is costly and time consuming. Second opinion is important. Some choose to follow at one private facilities and one government facilities. You will have hardcopy reports for any follow up outside PPUM. It is up to you to decide.

A3) Pregnancy insurance is important to pass your risk to the insurance company just in case there is any complication through out your journey. it doesn't cover caesarean nor epidural cost. AT PPUM and other government hospital, they will try their best to deliver your baby naturally. Hence, Caesarean and epidural are not in their priority list.

1) Please walk in to book, upon booking need to pay RM500 deposit upfront. They will give you a date to follow up, usually the 1st check up starts after 6th month pregnancy. So before 6th month pls do ur follow up in KKIA or private. Is important to keep track the baby monthly growth. I did mine in private because get to do scanning every month. KK only get to scan few months once. With the scanning at least i get to know my baby heart beat and growing well.

2) No repetitive because I want my pregnancy journey smooth, I don't wan to have the regret moment when something unpleasant happen. When u reach about 8th onwards mayb just do the follow up in PPUM. The check up will be twice a month. PPUM facility is much better compare to KK. At least you are attended to a doctor through is MO but the MO is on the path to gynea master (check up time about 3-4 hours-Half day gone). KK usually attended by nurse / MO but checking a list of questions in the pink book. Is good to have 2nd opinion in this journey.

3) Yes, definitely is a must and not from the point as an agent but as a mommy. Personal experience, I have fever probably due to epidural after delivered and arranged to stay in HDU for 2 days. My client premature baby send to NICU for 1 day all these are claimable for hospital allowance. The hospital allowance is enough to cover my PPUM fees.

No caesarean and epidural coverage. The prenatal plan mostly cover the complication and hospital allowance. PPUM allows epidural which cost about RM250 (3 years back cost).

Overall I quite happy with the delivery in PPUM. The room is 4 bedded. So abit noisy because 1 baby crying the rest will follow. Mommy has to take care baby day and night and only breast feeding. Hospital didn't prepare any milk for baby. If supply not enough pls bring ur own 1 but don't let the nurse notice. Else kena scold.

Have a pleasant and wonderful pregnancy journey rclxm9.gif thumbup.gif

* All the information sharing is 3 years back. Last heard from my friend their cost has increased from RM500 to 1K.
