FPP Putrajaya Review | My Labour Experience

by - April 13, 2018


Hi loves,

Today I'll be sharing my experience with my delivery at Hospital Putrajaya using their Full Paying Patient Scheme, I've got too many enquiries asking me regarding the FPP Putrajaya services so I've written everything important here.

I delivered my first child, Miya back in 2015 and now I am back again with my second baby. Why do I keep coming back? The fact is the service is good and the price is reasonable & affordable, I don't really see the difference between going to private hospitals and this.

FPP Putrajaya is pretty packed nowadays, it was nothing like back then so once you have decided this is the hospital you want to be, make an appointment ASAP! Just call Hospital Putrajaya at 03-83124200, state that you're want to make an appointment as an FPP patient for delivery, they will set an appointment for you with the specialist of your choice.

TIP: Make sure you know your EDD (estimated due date) & how many weeks you're at now. The nurse will give you an appointment based on that.

Here are some of the things you would like to know as an FPP patient

#1 Your spouse is allowed to enter the operation theatre with you. My husband was there with me during both my deliveries, he was in the room to accompany me the entire process and it was a great support for me when I know someone familiar was in there with me. I cannot image how scary it would be going in there alone.

#2 Hospital Putrajaya is a breastfeeding friendly hospital. Doctors and nurses will encourage you and guide you to bf your child since I'm pro-breastfeeding this meant a lot to me. They practice skin to skin right after birth and this is one of the most effective methods for promoting exclusive breastfeeding.

#3 Your baby will be placed with you after delivery, there is no baby room, the nurses will monitor how you handle the baby, this is to ensure that after you return home you know how to take care of your own child. Mummies be prepared to learn how to change diapers, wipe them clean, feed them.

#4 We get to choose the specialist of our choice but each specialist has their limit on the number of patients they will be seeing so again book asap! The specialist will only start seeing you once you're 28 weeks so for the time being, you will have to go to Klinik Kesihatan or you may go to a private ob & gyn as well, just ask the Dr to fill up accordingly in the buku merah.
** If you're in Puchong and looking for a doctor, I highly recommend going to TMC Fertility and Women's Specialist Centre Dr Chong, he's patient and the charges are approx RM120 for ultrasound scan and consultation.

#5 5 star service at the friction of the price. A deposit of RM3k will be collected upon registration and the refund will be given back to you upon discharge. In 2015, my delivery with my first was RM1.4k for normal delivery without epidural. I just had my 2nd child in March 2018 and it's RM1.6k for normal delivery without epidural.

#6 We are allowed to go home the next day!! Yayy!! I work in the medical line so staying in the hospital is something I hate, be it private or government, I just wanna get out asap, omwe are discharged the next day after the specialist has come to see you and make sure everything is ok.

My Labour Experience 


I started spotting the day before I was due and I was so happy because supposedly Dr Hamidah scheduled me to be induced (both my girls were full term and late) The contractions started around 9am, it was really light contractions which felt like a stomach cramp so no biggie, got myself admitted at 10am and the nurses started to do the usual test on me, my heartbeat was low most likely because I was hungry, they told me it was okay to eat something light, so I went to the nearest mall - IOI City Mall not knowing they meant tapao food at the cafeteria, they called me a few times to check on me, I think I gave them a slight heart attack, by the time I got back it was slightly before 12pm and I was only 3cm dialated and before I know it baby was out at 230pm, it was a really quick labour and despite all the pain, I'm so happy to hold my baby girl in my hands

Which specialist to choose?

I went back to Dr Hamidah, she delivered Miya previously and I was really happy with her work, my stitches healed nicely and I've received so much useful information from her during both my pregnancy and felt well cared for, she's experienced and despite her busy schedule she explained all my worries especially when I kept having spotting this pregnancy, she even gave me a 3D ultrasound scan during one of my visit without me asking for it, how nice is that right?

What do you need to pack?

Bring your own towels, toiletries, a few sets of baby clothes, diapers and a cup for drinking because they do not prepare these for you. The only thing prepared by them is hot water in a thermal flask. Hospital food is horrible so be sure to ask your family to prepare some food for you. You can also check out my post here for a list of essential items to pack.

TIP Please remember to pack Yu Yee Oil or whatever ointment of your choice that expels wind.

Charges for FPP patient

Consultation Fee Weekdays RM60 | Weekends RM90
Ultrasound Screening RM75
Single/Double Bed Executive RM300
Single Bed 1st Class RM160
Double Bed 1st Class RM130

Rooms & Visiting hours




Here's a look at my first class room, the executive rooms were full so I had to settle for this. It was a twin sharing room but I had a really nice neighbour, the environment was nice and clean but your spouse is not allowed to stay in so this round I was on my own but since this is my 2nd child I was fine, I knew what I needed.

You could also opt for the executive ward at the main building, your spouse is allowed to stay in with you but there are limited rooms there so it depends on your luck on the day you deliver if there's a space you will be allowed to move over.

Visiting hours are Mon - Fri 1230pm - 2pm | 430pm - 7pm ; Sat, Sun & PH 1230pm - 7pm, unfortunately, children aged 12 and below are not allowed to visit so do not bring your younger children or they might have to wait at the lobby.

I hope this post will help those who are deciding where to go and what to expect if you're gonna sign up as a FPP Patient in Hospital Putrajaya. Do drop me a massage if you need help :)

Happy birthing mummies, all the best ❤

  5. Hi, may i know if FPP patient must habe the pink book from Pusat kesihatan? I have been contemplating if i should go to PK apart from the provate O&G specialist i am seeing.

    Noticed that you mentioned we can either go PK or private doctor as long as just ask the Dr to fill up accordingly in the buku merah.

    May i clarify on point above, do you mean asking private doctor to fill up the book? And where can i get the book please?

    Thanks so much!

    1. Hi dear, no you don't need a pink book to be a FPP patient but it'll be easier for the Dr at Putrajaya during your checkups.

      To get a pink book you'll have to register at Klinik Kesihatan. After having mine I had my private Dr jot down the details that's needed, the doctor will know what to do.

    1. Hi dear, you can ask him to wait at the waiting area, there is one for hubby's. If you're staying overnight to be induce the nurses will let you know the time so your hubby will have enough time to prepare :)

  9. Hi,can i ask is it got any instalment for FPP? And is it every time need to pay when we visit doctor at putrajaya hospital? Is it the deposit rm3k just for charges of the delivery time ? Consultantion fees not include ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi there's no installment for FPP

      #1 Yes, you pay during each visit
      #2 RM3k deposit is just charges during delivery at the hospital, meaning whatever you use, Dr check up is all included
      #3 1 month after delivery you'll need to visit the dr again to make sure things are alright, that will be charged seperately.

  10. Hi Jia Shin, did Hospital Putrajaya give you Buku Rekod Kesihatan Bayi & Kanak-Kanak for vaccination when discharged?

  11. So.. There's no guarantee that our husband can stay overnight with us in the ward even we're fpp? It's depends on lucky only?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Unfortunately that is the case, only executive ward allows husband to stay in and there's very limited room there. If it's a normal delivery you'll only be staying a night, unless you're a ceaserian patient then u can change to the executive ward when there's availability.
