It’s a brand new year and as we know it, maternity and delivery cost at private hospitals in Malaysia either increases or remains the same. No doubt the fees are astonishingly high to give birth at a private hospital but you’re actually paying for the top class customised service you will get. When I delivered at SJMC, my husband was with me from before I gave birth till baby was out. He even cut our daughter’s umbilical cord, of course under the supervision and watchful eyes of the obgyn. Stayed for two nights in a single-bedded room. There was also a sofa that opens up to a single bed which my husband occupied throughout my recovering days.
I went through all the trouble again this year (was diligently emailing and calling hospitals last year before I gave birth) and inquired hospitals for your convenience. Here’s a compiled list of private hospitals in Malaysia and their maternity rates for 2016. Also please note that I’ll be adding more as and when. Rates may vary from time to time so please be sure to check with the respective hospitals, I’ll try to keep this post updated as much as I can. You might also want to check out last year’s rates to compare. Prices are stated in MYR.
