Filipina Pregnant in Singapore

Filipina Pregnant in Singapore

I am a FOREIGNER, working here in Singapore. I was so surprise and shock at first when I confirmed that I am pregnant. It was really an exciting feeling but scared as well because I have no idea how to handle my pregnancy here in Singapore without my family with me, especially my mother. A lot of things that came into my mind that what if it will affect my working performance and my boss will get mad, what if it’s so hard to get through nights of sleeping and endless worrying of what will the baby’s health if I am always worried. It was a very difficult moments, which I personally handle it every single day going off and to work.

Question arises from nowhere which actually materializes when I totally stand and being responsible of my being pregnant. Telling myself over and over again, I have to have this baby no matter what, that I will fight for her and raise her with all my love and care.

Only thing that bothers me is the expenses of hospitalization that will be incur during delivery. As a foreigner of Singapore with an Employment Pass do I have the right to deliver my baby here with cheaper rates of hospitalization charge??.. Can I acquire dependent pass for my baby so she can stay with me?… And with regards with the dependent pass since I am not married yet with my boyfriend, and we are planning to have my boyfriend’s particular to be included in my baby’s name soon, is it possible that I can process her dependent pass under my working pass even though that my baby will bring my boyfriends surname??… All of these questions are very important to me since I am a foreigner.

I am still in the state of excitement, worried, and of course being happy because soon enough my baby will be out in the world and will be in Singapore. I find it so easy to handle and helpful having my pregnancy here in Singapore since the transportation is so efficient for me to go work and back home. A quiet and not polluted country, just good to raise my baby soon.
