PGH (Public Hospital, Private Patient)
« on: February 13, 2013, 06:42:45 am »

Hi mommies!
I was born in PGH (Philippine General Hospital) by the year of 1987.
25 years later, I'm about to give birth to my first baby, gusto ko sana sa PGH din.
Hindi lang dahil memorable, pero dahil cheap din. (Tight budget lang kami.)
Kaso I used to be a BS Nursing student. Madalas kasi pag public hospital, pinag ppractisan lang ng mga studyante yung mga bata.
Gusto ko sana sa PGH pero may private patients ba sila with private rooms?
I tried to call their hotline kasi, hindi naman attentive.
I can't ask my mom naman since she passed few years ago away.
Anyone here na ba na nanganak dun? How was your experience? And how much yung nagastos nyo?
Share naman  :)

Yes there are private rooms there. I did not give birth there but we transferred our preemie twins there from makati med di kasi namin kaya cost eh. Although you're in a private room severely understaffed pa rin so kahit na la naman intern humawak ng babies ko yung staff overworked pa rin so not as attentive and careful. I am a meld tech and yes during my internship we did practice on babies even the resident doctors do that too. Scary I know pero since BSN ka naman you can keep a closer watch. Just make sure na I room in with you na Lang yung baby kasi Nursery is a very scary place, at least for me.

Hi sis! Meron private rooms sa PGH. Tama si s sis annamariemomof3 understaffed sila tsaka may mga hospital items na you need to buy outside (sa tapat mismo ng PGH). Maayos namaan ang rooms nila, malakas ang aircon. I think safe pa din naman ang baby mo dun tsaka room-in mo na lang para di ka magworry gaano. Since BSN ka, at least you know how to take care of your baby on your own ;) Ako nga somewhat kampante kasi si hubby BSN na BSMT pa hehe! Siguro naman mas may alam sya sakin hehe! Problem lang pala sa PGH, pipila ka talaga to get your private room. Much better din kapag may endorsement ka from your OB there. Ganoon nangyari sa daddy ko when he was still alive. Pila talaga si mama ko to get a room kahit alam nilang paying ha.

Hi sissies!

Expecting mom here! :) Currently on my 2nd trimester and my OB is at PGH. Dr. Ana Victoria V. Dy Echo, MD. I'm still trying to get to know her. So far, okay naman and approachable sya.

However, since wala pa ko exp, I don't know what questions to ask.

Can anyone share their experiences in giving birth at PGH? How much is the estimate cost or package for their private room?

Hello Mommy Louise! I merged your topic with this thread as this has been discussed already. Do back read to know other SP moms' experience. You may also like to view Smart Parenting's article on Maternity Packages in Metro Manila which includes PGH.

Do update us on your experience. Thanks for posting!
