^ nabasa ko din sis na ang room mo semi-private, may ka-share ka ba sa room? Ilan?

Hindi si dra. Chanyungco ang pedia partner ng ob ko si dr. Portia guevarra daw.. Di ko alam pano ako hihirit if ever kay ob na si dra. Chanyungco ang maging pedia ni baby..

Thanks sis ha! :)

^With me kase, nagtanong muna ob ko kung may preferred ako na pedia, which is Dra Chanyungco nga. Buti na lang partner sila. You can tell her naman sis, dapat ok lang sa ob mo yon.

Thanks sis vans & sis bibibuy! :)

Anong major difference ng semi-private & private room? Kung wala rin naman pala ako kasama na ibang patients sa semi-private room edi dun nalang ako..

May hospital newborn kit ba sa mvmc? Nag-prepare na kasi ako ng gamit namin ni baby..
Super thanks! :)

^sis, im not sure with private kasi sa health card ko yung lang ang allowed heheh anyway, sa semi may sarili kang cr, may upuan for bantay or bisita, mini ref, cabinet, tv and aircon. parang private na siya pinaliit lang ng onti.  kit? merong water, milk, lampin, thermometer and diapers yata yun, hindi ko na maalala hehe

^ naku sis! May milk sample? I will exclusively breastfeed my son & wish not to be given any milk samples & more importantly glucose/formula during our stay in the hospital...

Sana naman wala formula or they are strict about bringing feeding bottles..

^Sis baka you mean small private room. Yung semi-private kase may ka-share yon talaga, 2 beds don, I know this because my auntie stayed in a semi-private room for 2 months at MVMC because of her cancer. Sa MVMC they have a small and large private room. Same amenities lang except that they differ in sizes. I stayed in a small private room when I gave birth in 2010.

hi sisses! i'm due to give birth sa april and until now scouting pa rin kami ng hospitals. hingi lang ako ng feedback between St. Victoria and VT Hospital. which is better sa dalawa? kasi OB ko affiliated sa St. Victoria pero haven't asked kung affiliated sa VT Hospital. Kung meron din dito na recently lang nanganak, pwede makahingi ng breakdown ng expenses? i'm thinking na dapat may nakahanda kami 150k (which i think sobra-sobra na) pero kung budget wise sana until 60k lang gastos namin. 1st baby kasi din namin so no idea if CS or NSD kalalabasan. so far no complications naman ang pregnancy ko. haay...naloloka ako sa gastos :p

Si Dra. Chanyungco yung pedia nung nanganak ako last 2011 sa MVMC. 35-36 weeks yung baby ko nung nilabas. Supposedly ilalagay dapat sa incubator but she decided na gamitan na lang ng drop light. After ng mga ilang oras, ayun nahirapan huminga at nag respiratory distress yung baby ko. The best part is, nag out of the country sya kinabukasan due to a conference. Because of MVMC's staff incompetence, nag 50/50 yung baby ko at kelangan isugod sa ICU ng ibang ospital. Take note sa ibang ospital kasi walang pediatric ICU ang MVMC.

I hope this will serve as warning to those who plans to give birth at MVMC.

Hi ulit! Update lang ako about sa hospitals na sinilip namin. We went to St. Victoria and VT Maternity Hospital yesterday. Di hamak na new facilities ang VT Maternity Hospital pati mga rooms nila magaganda (kahit ward). Sa St. Victoria naman medyo kalumaan na at maliliit ang private rooms at napansin namin ni hubby, punuan din doon. Dami silang patients. We're leaning towards VT Maternity Hospital, bago na tsaka since paanakan lang talaga, mas less yung mahawa sa sakit ang preggies pati mga babies. Ang dilemma ko lang, OB ko di yata affiliated sa VT so baka biglang magtaas ng PF kapag decided na dun na kami. As much as possible ayoko na magpalit ng OB kasi 7 months na ko next week pero if no choice, baka nga magpalit na lang. Sana kapag nakausap ko si OB next week, ok naman sa kanya na dun na lang ako manganak. Sa staff, both hospitals naman accommodating sila sa mga questions namin. Di ko nga lang natanong kung breastfeeding advocate both hospitals. Sana matapos na din ang hospital hunting namin. Target ko kasi before the end of january decided na talaga kami.

Hi everyone!

I just gave birth (normal) last Friday (Feb 15) at VT Maternity Hospital. And all I can say is, sa sobrang tuwa namin ni husby sa experience and short stay namin doon, kahit super duper kuripot siya, nilibre niya ng pinakamalaking Calda pizza ang hospital staff on our 2nd and last day sa hospital.

From me and my husby, we highly recommend this hospital to everyone na gusto ng maternity experience of high standards yet with relatively affordable fees. Oh, and all the staffs, from the doctors (owners) down to the janitors, super friendly and helpful... at all times.

And also I am glad I listened to my MIL about having a male OB instead. Dr. Justin Tansinsin is so maalaga and maasikaso... and a really humorous guy. Felt sobrang naalagaan simula pa lang sa consultations down to my kapanganakan. Iba raw talaga mag-alaga ang OB na lalaki.  ;)
I so love wedding photography!

pichapie Sis super thanks sa feedback mo. I'll be giving birth there sa april and glad to know na maganda ang experience nyo :) May I ask, how much inabot nyo? Kasi yung OB ko, di sya accredited doon pero pwede naman daw magpaanak kahit hindi accredited. Price range kasi bigay ng OB ko 35-40K NSD overnight lang yata pero included na PF.

i second the motion of sis pichapie, sobrang competent, professional pero homey ang feeling. with that combo . super value for money. i gave birth at vt via cesarean section last september 24 . 52k all in. wala ako philhealth, wala din ako sss, so mas mura pa of you have.
you can't always have people to love you, but you can always make them fear you.

twisted_angel hi sis! in terms of facilities, mas okay ang VT kasi bagong-bago talaga and maganda ang rooms kahit yung ward lang. as for service, can't comment pa kasi i'll be giving birth pa lang this april (or march kung mapaaga). pero as what i've read here in GT and sa smart parenting, good reviews naman so far :) if you have the time, do check it out. kasi kami noon, pinagpilian namin St. Victoria or VT and hands down sa VT ang gusto namin. now, if you have no plans of changing your OB at gusto mo rin sa VT, talk to him/her kung pwede sya doon. kasi OB ko kahit hindi accredited pwede sya magpaanak...open kasi VT sa non-accredited OB's. In addition, maternity hospital ang VT so less ang chances na mahawa ng ibang sakit.

@misis_gh, @ninaceline, @oyie - sisses,we were in for a big surprise when the bill was handed to us. Alam naman namin ni husby na NSD ako, but I took a private room for two days so we were expecting na more or less 30K na ang bayaran namin. But lo and behold, tumataginting na total of 21K++ lang ang pinabayad sa amin, weee! Oh kudos rin pala sa Philhealth ko at nakatulong din makabawas sa bill, of course. ;-)

@misis_gh - yes, we were informed nga rin na if oks lang sa OB mo sa VT magpaanak, by all means, no problemo with VT yun. In my case, di ko kasi nagustuhan ang OB ko sa ibang hosp kaya nung lumipat na ako sa VT on my 4th month, I took my chance with Dr. Tansinsin. And glad I did.

@oyie - korek, VT's food! Masarap nga talaga. Iba iba pa ang fruits that come with the meal everytime. Kakatuwa rin na hindi naka-cling wrap ang pag-serve ng meals, just like sa St Luke's. ; And yes, you can bring in your pedia sa kanila. Di rin nila na-mention sa akin before (kasi I didn't ask either), so on the day ng delivery naitanong sa akin. Kaya yun pedia/hosp owner na rin ang umasikaso sa akin.

Oh mga sisses, tip na rin pala: Make sure you get rm 207 if mag-private room kayo ok? It's the most spacious of them all, tapos iisa lang ang rate ng privy rooms kaya better get hold of that room instead.
I so love wedding photography!
