Pantai vs Gleneagles (Price) | Commentary
The total bill for a normal delivery in Pantai Bangsar (Jul 2012) was RM5,900. The bill in April 2011 review (Pantai) was RM10,8++ vs the bill in Oct 2009 review (Gleneagles) was RM 5,791. Please take note this is not an apple to apple comparison as the delivery in Pantai was an  'emergency C-section' whereas the delivery in Gleneagles was a 'Forcep' delivery. An emergency C-section procedure is normally more expensive than a 'Forcep' delivery. However, both the itemized bills are worthy of your consideration, thanks to the contributors.
