  1. Hi, mums, dads and parents to be, Today I manage to find some free time to go through some of the forum topics and came across this one which I find intresting and informatic. (would have help a lot if people tell us which are the bad doc to avoid too) Since some of us really rely on the recommendations and words from the horses' mouths in forums so i guess i just "tumpang" here to share my experience with my gynea.Dr. Mak Foo Sing...i would said avoid him..unless you need IVF.. so far I only read people commented he is good for IVF.. He totally ignore your interest although you may convey your intends since the begining..(yup I started seeing him from the begining..and hated myself for it)..and then last minutes he is all for himself let a lone a total "change face" when you are on the bed for labour.. To read on on what has happened to me try the below thread/link... http://www.malaysiabrides.com/forum/index....showtopic=17746 Good Luck to all... Cindy
  2. PuiPui79, Thanks for you kind advise, the fact i hv to accept what has already happened that i got operated with unprofessional advise, for me sharing what i gone through here is for some mums ane way my cousin has a friend working as a staff nurse in SJMC's meternity ward and from this reliable source Dr. Mak is confirmed to be a opt prone doc, statistically 99.9% of all his patients end up being cut open...if there is a natural born under his care that day will be the hot topic of the day in the labour room and ward... I do hope people like me do stand out to share their ordeals so that others do not fall prey to there axxhoxx. B'cos i did run a check with this doc's name when i first engaged him but there seem to hv no negetive comments abt him. But now i knew some members has been or narrowly escape the same ordeal as I, so i hope more people will post their experience and make a list of such docs for others to take precautions. TQ Cindy
  3. Andre I am sorry to hear that you wife has gone for c-sect in state of natural birth as she wanted, for the outcome of safety for wife and baby is the main concern, money is not really a big issue, my hubby never make a big fuss abt it either, but is a matter of choice, whether is a choice made willingly or being hoax into one. And u are rite some people very sensitive to epidural ie. epidural too effective on them thus no pain and no pushing urge but this is totally not my case, i have my left pelvic still in pain after 3 hours putting on epidural and the nurses hv to add soother anaestatic to make the pain go away and when i under went c-set they hve me fully anestised as the epidural is not working well on me. I totally hv no problem pushing as a senior nurse who check me also confirmed that my pelvic is working fine (still opening) and my pushes works (as the baby head is lowering as she place her hand in me and she can fill it) till the evil doc opened his big month and scare me and my hubby in to panicking.. And to add to that, the un heal wound that is in the mid section of the c-sect after 15 days (on day 8th the wound is abt 12mm (i lay slanting on the ward bed and blood ozzing out.. on day 12th i am not sure as i did not get to see it as my belly is still big laying flat)...ah what luck i hv to end up like this and force into a c-sect. I totally hate my self and should hv trusted the nurse who is awomen rather than that doc. See sometime the professional are really not trustable and reliable and abusing our layman trusts. Alas yes maybe some of the members and friends of min are right that atleast my baby is safe that i am grateful ..i don't credit the doc for this though.. Yup, u are rite i should seek other doc opinion from now on especially my unheal wound. Cindy
  4. Hi, Thanks for all the sympathetic comments and to some who escape you are lucky, i have made search abt this doc online but did not get any negetive comments on him but there are some abt his brother though so i thought is fine but then To add to my predicament and stress the wound he stiched up after the c-sect still hv not heal and today is day 15 after the opt, my wound was bleeding a day after this doc cut the thread heads on day 8 and wnet back to hospital to see him got charged again and he patch me up with another plaster no stiching then on day 12(25 oct) my wound bleed again and went back to hospital again this time a sunday unable to contact the doc i called the hosp and were ask to go to Emergency room and the doc there will contact my doc, how stupid is this...he called me ecentually and then i went back to hosp and some nurse patch me up again with another plaster so..there i am still with a big plaster on my belly after 2 weeks .. I am not having herbals soups or anything and i stay at condo ( no staircase) and the heaviest thing i pick up wud be my 3kg+ baby so u be the judge how good is he.. I am really very stress out and frustrated and my hubby is so upset and he keep telling me to relex and not to get too stress out if not later develop post natal depression...Anyone can advise me how to be not stress out mentally and physically still in pain and haunted by this exprience??!!

  5. Hi, mums to be, Just want to share my exprience and warned all mum to be out there who want to have a choice of giving natural birth to their babies, nowadays we heard so much that the docs just want to save time and operate all their patients and play god to decide who born first for their own convinience. So be I guess if we have a list of recommended good gynea and obstetn we shaould also be warn of the money craving doc who are out to make maney and not the best interests to patient at heart. Here goes what happened to me.. I gave birth to my baby on Oct 14 ( ya, u are right hoax into a c-sect by my doc) and I had since the begining of my pregnancy went for a private and a public clinicto do my routine check up as I am already 34 and this is my first baby just to be extra careful. I have since the begining express my intend to have a natural birth to my doc (especially the Private one, as the public kesihatan clinic only nurses make the routine checks). He seem to be all kind, nice and supportive and assure I have a good and normal pregnancy and natural birth is not a problem till the end. On the 13 Oct I had through the nite show of blood( quite ittle but the contraction is getting stronger), I suspect this was caused by the doc checking me on the nite of 13th inserting his hand in my privates-- so admitted my self to SJMC under my private Gynea, Dr. Mak Foo Sing,( I stayed in Kelana Jaya, so SJMC seems to be a good and nearer choice) he has an private practice in Kuchai Entreprenuer Park, I was admitted at approc 9am++ ( with a dialation of approx 3 cm) and till 7pm (Dilation of 9cm ++) I was still in labour with epidural, the doc came to hospital at 4.30pm only my water bag still intacted and he pocked it to broke (without my consent) it at abt 6pm+ and then he performed a episiotomy on me i saw him make a cut at my privatehe checked and told me the baby head then he suggest by 7pm if still the baby head is high that I should went for c-sect, came 7pm he check and told me the baby head still high and kept pushing me to sign for c-sect. I demand for more time and he waited till 7.30pm and started making remarks like baby under distress, head still high, heart beat dropping and he scare see my hairy private and even put a blanket over me. Suddenly the evil side of him all came out so totally unprofessional and making inedequate remarks and make me and my hubby (first time parent panic) at 7.45 I finally gave in as I was unble to think straight as he kept saying that if the baby heart beats dropped further then only I agreed to oprerate then it will endanger the baby. As for the episoitomy I did not knoe if he stiched me up down there or not???!! (I have called the hospital to checked, and wating for their reply) I was push out of the opt theater by 9pm and immediately felt so helpless and sad of agreeing the opt and thinking back I could have in my right mind may demand for another doc for opinion or even replaced of this stupid doc. As I repeat my exprience with my grandma, my mum, aunties, cousins they all told me I could have had my baby naturally I given more time and with my waterbag in tacked my baby will not be in danger just need monitoring. So I ended up hoaxed into be cut up, paying extras and feeling depress for such unprofessional and unethical practice by this doc, so be warned. To add to that my hubby saw in the ward nursing counter all patients under this same doc who are admitted on the same day were operated (name of patient with a 'c' marked behind names, including mine) including me all 3 of us so he is making the call and hoax patient to opts to save time and make money. I have been crying as I now felt to have cope with the extras for the bills (Total bills 3days 2 nite, RM8.5 K) and knowing this blodding doc unethical calls that caused me to decide for operation and massed up my state of mind and mess up my entire post natal plan made during pregnancy just be caued of his greed and unethical opinions. I practically cursed him everyday now. So good luck to all mums to be, my advise know your right and kick the fxxking doc out if they mistreated you and demand for 2nd opinion no matter what.

  7. Nckeat, Sorry another question, so how should I advise Klinik Kesihatan and Dr. Mak on the refferal letter where and who should the letter be address to if I do not give them a specific hospital name?? The refferal letter is not compulsary for either Private Hos or Govt Hos? right? TQ again Cindy
  8. Nckeat, Thanks for yur quick feedback, would my age (1st baby at 34 and what if my pelvic is not so flexible compare to yournger mums to be) caused any last mins hiccups in my delivery which all then antenatal test said is normal, would that affect my dilation during contraction?? How much time normally we are looking at from initial frequent contraction to the actual delivery (I now everyone varies on case to cas basis but what say the statistic??) Am I save to travel to GHKL, Sg.Buloh or Selayang form Kelana Jaya once I am in labour?? and at what stage you suggest we make a move to the hospital? You mentioned that Govt Hos usually will not trun down active labour patient..but is the signs they are look for at admission it is a 3cm dilation or otherwise a frequent contraction? or bleeding or membrane burst??? I guess now I better find out all the shorter routes to KLGH, Sg. Buloh and Selayang and made my husband memorise all that in case of emergency. Thank you, Cindy
  9. This is a bit misleading. Your baby will be still under the care of the nurse untill discharge. The nurse will help you take care of the baby. However the baby will be place beside your bed, it is called rooming in, it is to encourage breast feeding. The baby is NOT left entirely to the mother's care after delivery. The public wing and private wing care are the same except that: In private wing: 1. Got 1 to 1 care by specialist. 2. Shorter waiting time in antenatal clinic. 3. Probably less smiling from doctors and staff in public wing. 4. No 'disturbance' by medical student at private wing (hey, if the student not given opportunity, how they are going to learn?] Otherwise, all aspect of care are the same following the obstetric principles. Hi Nkeat, Read most of your posts and found them really helpful. It is so good to have pro like you around in the forum to answer to our questions. I need some advise here I am 26weeks preg now, I am 34 years old and stay in Kelana Jaya, wanting to opt for UMMC but seems not really rated hightly among the mums here and you also written some quite favourable remarks for HUKM and GHKL and not really much on how is UMMC, I know it is a sort of training centre ...but is the facilities ok, blood bank sufficient , quality of nursing staff and noumbers of skilled doctors/ consultants?? How is UMSC in comparison then? I read UMSC charges similar to other private hospital,of course the service is better and some posts said that labour room is actually the ward you will be stay in and hubby allow to stay with you and baby stroll in to the room and etc. It is advisable to make a longer journey to GHKL or HUKM from Kelana Jaya in case I begin to have signs of labour?? I am try to save some $$ here in this economy environment, I heard it is a long queue at UMMC, I did my initial check up with Dr. Mak FS at Kuchai Entrepreanue Park and then I go to Klinik Kesihatan Kelan Jaya nowadays but still goes to Dr. Mak as the Klinik do not do ultrasound, by far my pregnancy has been normal and I am getting a sort of referral letter by my next check up (inform by Dr. Mak and Klinik Kesihatan), does the letter specify which hospital you goto for labour?? Or it is a open letter to any hospital?? Kindly advise. Thank you, Cindy NG
  10. nee, Thanks for your advise, I am keeping my cool and went there yesterday, I guess this BS read this forum and they did not mentioned my expiration and give me full refund of RM800 . Me and my HB keep the cool to see their reaction <_< when we arrive and they did not brought this issue up and so we also just let it golah..did not brought up the wrong paging and wrong color of the albums and albums case :o . Hurray no need to see them again..... :P What a relief..my HB said maybe our 5th year anniversary we go to take another ablum with our kid(s) somewhere else if i like.. it is very sweet of him isn't.... Cindy
  11. Tomatopeanut, RM2688 wah with a freee land arrangement for Shanghai!!! How much that worth ah??? I mean the shanghai land arrangement?? Which BS is this?? or is this a professional photographer studio and do they have lots of gowns?? For the package: 4 gowns for the entire ID and OD photo shoot is rather not enought imagine only 4 different gowns throught out your album...2 albums and 35 poses and 20 pages and sam for 2 albums?? so it will be like every 2 pages same gowns??? Usually BS gives 7 gowns for photo shoot , 1 for OD, 2 wedding gown, 2 evening gown and 2 traditional custume. So only 4??!! The AD gowns provided is good enough. Body Foundation is provided free wah...are you sure they usually want the bride to buy as everyone skin tone different...do be cautious on the other items not included like you mentioned the eyeleshes, ampoule and nail art and corst to name a few..that might cost you another RM200-400. 35 poses for RM2688 is rather little. Do check out the posting in this thread and negotiate with this BS again if you really like to sign up with them to get better bargain... My package RM2888, total 8 gowns 57 poses...so try to bargainlah ...my BS service not too good but pictures turn out oklah... Thank you, Cindy
  12. Ky and Mindy, Tell your friend to browse the real life experience on this forum before sign up even in exhibition when things are too good to be true they might as well be so... if you shortlisted a few they read them up and find out if you can tolerated with their service before any payment!!! ;) I myself have a very bad experience with STAR EAST :( , Sunway you can read up under the Star East thread!! Good Luck to you and your friend... Cindy Ng
  13. Hi, All Star East Bride, Long time did not log. My AD on 1 Nov 08, now that all is over I feel really relief....Can't believe I said that especially no longer needs to deal with STAREAST. You gals better learn from exprience with this buntch of poor service provider!! Make sure everything in order.... do not pay full before collection drag them.. if not pay little by little...once pay full thats it no more bargaining power!!! I got my albums 5 days before my AD from Star East and my SA, Ally, was told to have gone back to home town and up till 20 Oct no one from Star East called me until I called them <_< , NO ONE practically follow up my case. REAL POOR SERVICE!!! Not to mentioned 3 days ahead only i was given my Music Slide CD!!! I took all photos in door and out door on 23 Jul 2008 and these bunch of hooligans only finish my album 5 days before my AS and got all my photo paging mix up ...( I rearrange the page when I view the design, and Ally e-mail the correct one for me to confirm and in teh end I got the original with out rearrangemetn!!) What can I said only 5 days ahead of my AD so I have :o to accept my albums isn't it if not how embarrassing with no albums to show on the AD!!! Tell me what are the choice I have?? And they also get the albums and album case color wrong, the album in chocolate clor and the album in orangy color so...total disappointment..my sister was with me and she keep holding me down as my AD is too near to make a big fuss... A day before my AD I went with my brother and his Gf to tied the car and gets my bouquet and they gets the flower wrong, I picked mix pink (yellowish pink) and they insist i picked pink.. luckily another SA (mix up with her clients) and she rectify the mistake...And in the midst ot tieing the car they spoil my wedding doll's little groom coat ..i imagine at that last minitues.. and the SA who tied the car told me the hands of my dolls too short thats why when they tried to pull tie the little coat of the dolls tear!!!! My brother gf is also so unhappy with theri service and she happended to bump into her friend outside and the friend has paid a RM200 deposit, she also told her friend better not take pic here, poor service not pro ata all...what a comment from someone who just been the first time!!! Yesterday I went to return my 1 evening gown and 1 coat of my husband and all the accessories at 7pm ya big deal they close at 7pm but there were still more then 5 of them there in the shop and I forget to bring my receipt thus they refuse to accept my return claiming they are not able to check against the items, I told them that they ahve a arbon copy but them refuse to look up for it and asked me to come on Tuesday ( Ihope they did not charge me extra, my husband is so furious of their service. I went on my honey moon and I called them to extend my return date with Yen and she told me is ok till 10 Nov and later she called and said they close on 10 so 11 Nov is ok I hope their is ok is not to deduct my deposit!!!! I guess I will needs to goes tot he cosumer activist for advise soon.... Deeply disappointed Cindy and totallly furious Andrew
  14. Rosayee, Don't get too worry and panic and one more thing do not rely on them to keep the promise, get them to write all the promises down tell them you have short memory and need everything to be written down...gets them to put down the exact deminsion or measurement.. I guess that is the best bet to safeguard your interest as a consumer. Usually all the husband to be will be letting the BTB to make all the calls but when times come that thing turn bad the Husband has a good chance if he raise the issue with the BS and find better solution as we always do the talking and the BS always think the BTB is easier to handle so sometimes the guys need to chip in and HELP lah... Good luck to you..... Cindy
  15. Dear all, Is this the same BS that recently have been advsertising heavily on the RM1688 to Bali/Phukit...including photo shoot???? TQ Cindy
