Singapore's economy is in severe recession. They have sent a lot of foreign workers home. Many countries are getting rid of foreign workers due to high unemployment and deepening recession. The only two countries which have growing economies and are hiring are India and Brazil. Brazil has some needs for specialized workers such as petroleum engineers with deep sea drilling expertise, but has no great need of nurses (they have good nursing schools and plenty of Brazilians in need of jobs). China has laid off over 100 million workers who are desperate for work despite claims of great economic growth (7.9% latest). India needs nurses and is hiring.

Your problem can be settled by talking with the recruitment agency. You can pay them by instalments after you have the job. In this way, you have a job, the agency earns his fees. A deal that's based on equality, and good-will of each other. For your information, it should be the employer who is required to pay fees for the recruitment agency. The employee doesn't have to pay anything. Check with a lawyer, and see if the agency is cheating you.

How much does pregnancy and childbirth cost in Singapore

How much does pregnancy and childbirth cost in Singapore?
I work in Singapore and soon will be a PR. My health plan does not cover pregnancy expenses. If I am to have a baby, how much can I expect to pay (for both prenatal care and labor)?

For KK Women's and Children's hospital and Mount Alvernia Hospital, it'll cost you about $1000 - $2500 depending on the class of ward you're staying in and how your baby is going to be delivered (Natural or Caesarean). You can check the website for more details. Thomson Medical Centre would cost you about $1000-$3000 also depending on the above mentioned factors. I heard from my friends that Raffles Hospital and Mt Elizabeth Hospital would cost you more because they are private hospitals. You can enquire through their website.

its very difficult to calculate the expenses for pregnancy and childbirth. during pregnancy u may or may not hv complications so thus, to & fro to the doc does costs alot..for childbirth, u can plan for normal delivery if u can as it cost lesser than caesarean, it also depends which class u choose too. its best to chk with the hospitals itself as diffierent hospital have different charges.

forget the childbirth expenses dear.. think of the expenses that lie ahead of you and your husband in the next twenty-five years.. the baby's Uni fees etcetera.. now think again..

Try to get PR first, since it's a huge difference in amount.I've given birth in Mount Elizabeth Hospital before i became PR and it was expensive, since I'm a foreigner. And amount also depends,if there any complications with you or your child.We had some and it cost us S$ 8K,i mean just delivery,but the check ups before and after also cost a lot.Strongly recommend you to get PR first.
