This was my second time taking FPP (Full Paying Patient) service at Putrajaya Hospital. The first time i took this service was when i was pregnant with my firstborn- Eidrix, which was in 2016. We came about it when we were figuring out if we wanted to go private or just to a government hospital. This service kinda gave the benefits of both worlds.


FPP basically enables you have some services and facilities like a private hospital but it is much much more affordable. You can also pick a specialist of your choice.

For me, Taking up FPP also guarantees that i’ll give birth in Putrajaya Hospital and not be sent away if the hospital is full.

You’ll be placed in a special ward where husbands are allowed to stay the night. Although they do have a strict policy on kids where children under 12 are not allowed to enter the wards.

As a Full Paying Patient, this means that every doctor visit or medication that is given will be charged. But the upside is that you’re paying at a much cheaper price compared to a private hospital.

You can check out Putrajaya hospital latest rates and charges for FPP patients here.

My Labour Experience

My experience as a FPP patient at Putrajaya Hospital starts at 7 months of pregnancy. I was going to Klinik Kesihatan prior in order to ensure that i have the ‘buku pink’. Compared to my first pregnancy, i was going to a private clinic up till 7 months and changed to Putrajaya Hospital. Not having the ‘buku pink’ doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be accepted, but the nurses did ask about it when i was there.

I went back to the same doctor i had before, which was Dr Azmi. If you’re interested to take on FPP, you’ll need to do it FAST as more and more people are starting to go there due to the benefits. You’ll just have to call the hospital at 03-83124200 and mention that you’d like to make an appointment as FPP patient for delivery in Putrajaya Hospital. The nurse will tell you which specialist are still available and you have the choice to choose one of them as your doctor.

I was seeing Dr Azmi every two weeks from 7 month onwards. Each appointment costs about RM130-160 for consultation and scan. I have a disc problem in my spine which led me to decide to have another c-sec, so we decided on a date, which made it more predictable for work, for my mum to fly down from Kuching and for myself mentally too.

2nd C-sec experience with Putrajaya Hospital as FPP Patient

We set the surgery to be on the 1st of March 2019. I would be 37 weeks+ on that date. I decided to take him out slightly earlier as my spine was really killing me by then.

We had to check in a day before, but we didn’t get a call from the nurse till the late evening, when a bed was finally available. Unfortunately, due to the overwhelming patients, i had to stay in a different ward because the FPP wards were super full.

Since we checked in at night, i had to go to the emergency counter where a deposit of RM3,000 was taken. Husband was not allowed to stay overnight in this ward, so had to spend the night alone- but it was alright. I made friends with the girl nextdoor who just gave birth to a baby boy. Nurses started prepping me for my surgery that night and asked me to start fasting at 9am the next day.

On surgery day, Dr Azmi came to check on me in the afternoon and mentioned that we’ll go into surgery in the evening. Last time i had my c-sec was at about 4 or 5pm, so i expected it to be around the same time, but boy was i wrong! It was a loooonnnngggggg day that day as we waited to be pulled into surgery.

At about 7ish, nurses finally called for me and wheeled me down to the operation theater. No family member were allowed in, so we said our ‘goodbyes’ before going in. You’ll then find yourself in a waiting room where the anaesthetist will explain the type of anaesthetics that’ll be given to you.

I had a horrible experience for my first c-sec where half my body was paralysed and was so groggy. So i was thinking of going under general anaesthesia (GA) this time- but the doctor who was really quite sarcastic warned me that i’ll have 17% higher chances of DYING and asked if i was willing to take the risk. Obviously, i was scared shitwitss and said no.. So epidural it was then!

After one hour in the waiting room and eavesdropping on the nurse who was trying to explain to a father that one of his twin has some problem during surgery, i was finally wheeled in to Operation theater 8.

They injected my back, my legs were straightened, my arms were wide open, they placed the curtain to shield the area of surgery and i was good to go. The theater was seriously freezing, and they had to place some sort of heater thingy on my chest to keep me a bit warm.

I was then greeted by a doctor who was NOT Dr Azmi. He explained that Dr Azmi had an emergency and that he was taking over the surgery- his name was Dr Hazim (which I later found out was the head of department). I didn’t have much of a choice, so just prayed for the best.

To my surprise, my c-sec this time was actually quite okay. The theater room was not dark and scary like the last time. I was even chatting with the anaesthetist and i think the surgery went quite fast. In 15 minutes and a few tugs baby was out and they were stitching me back up.

Food & Room in 5A (For FPP Patients)

To be honest i actually enjoyed the food that was served throughout my stay here in Putrajaya Hospital. It’s quite tasty and filling too. They serve you 4 times a day- breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner. But it’s always great to bring in some snacks as well as you do tend to get a little hungry in the middle of the night.

You get to choose between bubur or rice. And you’ll sometimes get fish instead of chicken too.

I had a twin sharing room. It will actually be quite hard to get the single room as everyone would have to follow a list and take turns staying in the single room which i think there’s only 1 or 2 of them. Unfortunately for me, second time FPP here in Putrajaya and still didn’t get the chance for single room even though room rates are the same, But it was okay and comfy. Nurses are also kind enough to provide some blankets and pillow hubs decides to stay over. There’s a TV for every patient.. but mine wasn’t working- but it’s okay who has time to watch TV anyways.. haha!

All in all, I would definitely recommend taking FPP here. BUT it has been getting quite the buzz lately and you should book your appointment with your desired doctor as soon as you know you’re pregnant, because it can get really full very fast!

    Hi Dear,
    Can you share with me the price of your bill to perform C-sec under FPP program? How long you stay at the hospital under c-sec?

    • Lily Shah June 17, 2019 at 2:27 pm Reply

      Hye.. my bill total was Rm3400 and i stayed for 3 nights.

      • Emely October 23, 2019 at 4:41 pm Reply

        Rm3400 is for C-sec?

  2. Eyra June 18, 2019 at 9:58 am Reply

    Just curious, what kinda disc problem r you having? Cuz i have slip disc. And im on fpp program too. Dont know whether normal or planned csec is okay for me.

    • Lily Shah June 18, 2019 at 10:34 am Reply

      My disc problem was never really diagnosed properly coz we could do any xray during pregnancy.. but it’s suspected a bulging disc. Talk to your doctor first.. he’ll probably ask you to try the labour position and see if it hurts x.. plus i think trust your gut…

  3. Lim June 26, 2019 at 6:24 pm Reply

    Hi, May I know how long to quee for normal follow up appt after 7 months ?

    • Lily Shah June 27, 2019 at 12:39 pm Reply

      usually once you have set appointment and got your doctor, you just have to go there, pay the fee first den wait for your turn. your que number depends on which doctor you are seeing. i usually go there by 8am to register and get que number but my doctor usually do his rounds around the hospital first then only comes in clinic about 10am, den by 1030/11am done oredi… key is to get ur number earlier first so you don’t have to wait so long after doctor arrives.

      Hye, Yup, when you go in to register, you can pay by cash or credit card. I used credit card.. and total bill was RM3400++ so after i check out i just need to pay the remaining 400++

  5. Ina August 25, 2019 at 4:41 pm Reply

    Hi, you mentioned that during your 1st pregnancy, you went to a private clinic. Did you ask your doc for a full detail report and bring it for your 1st checkup at Hospital Putrajaya? 2nd question, sorryyyy banyak questions, does it hurt? I mean the epidural? Had both children with GA at SJMC last time, but would like to try epidural and planning to deliver the 3rd in Putrajaya, but takut . Thank you so much.

    • Lily Shah August 26, 2019 at 4:11 pm Reply

      Hye dear, yes, i asked them for the report and any other documents.. just tell them your plan, they should know wat docs to give.

      For the epidural, dia mcm kene cubit.. not very painful.. to me la.. it just kinda stings mcm tu… i think my pain tolerance pun quite high.. i just didn’t like the feeling tiba2 you feel half your body kebas and you can’t move your legs sume.. so the nurses/doctor will adjust and move your legs for you…

      Hope i answered ur question.. happy to help!

      • Ina August 26, 2019 at 8:45 pm Reply

        Magaddd really? By the way, i’ve tried calling the hospital since morning, operator sambungkan to bahagian fpp but tak ada yang pickup. Tried calling direct fpp phone line also no pickup. Nak try lagi esok and harapnya ada lah rezeki orang pickup the phone. Thank you for the info ya 🙂

      • Ina August 29, 2019 at 10:36 am Reply

        Hi, lastttt question if you dont mind. Boleh tahu why you choose Dr Azmi? and how was Dr Hazim? Ok ke?Would like to get feedback on these 2 doctors. TIA

        • Lily Shah August 29, 2019 at 11:04 am Reply

          Hye! Actually i only had those 2 choices when i took my first FPP. it was either Dr Azmi or Dr Hazim who’s the head of dept. i chose Dr Azmi for my first pregnancy because i didn’t want to have the head of dept be my doctor coz i know he gonna be super busy.. and tru enough i think many mums under Dr Hazim hardly see him personally until the very2 ujung mcm tu.. So second pregnancy pun i stick je to the same doctor because i had priority to masuk because he was my previous doctor (it was pretty full dah by that time). Dr Azmi is quite kool and kinda chilled out.. Nurses say he’s good too… When i met Dr Hazim in the delivery room, he seems like a very nice doctor as well- but personally didn’t interact much pun so i can’t really say much for dr Hazim..

          • Cassie June 29, 2020 at 10:35 am

            Hi I just called the hospital they said the FPP is fully and I am 7 months now should I go and book the doctor consultations and try to get the slot for my first baby?? If I am good but I want c section will FPP take in my request?

          • Lily Shah June 29, 2020 at 10:43 am

            If FPP is full means there are no doctors available around your due date. That’s why i would suggest people to book as soon as you know you’re pregnant.If you are 7 months now, looks like it’s a bit too late.You can try to book for consultations but i’m not really sure. Dr Azmi i think is okay if you’d what to do c-sec even if you have no problem.. but not sure about other docs.. Hope all goes well for you!

    Hi, may I ask, would you happen to know that for husbands to stay overnight, is it only for FPP patients or for normal patients as well?

    • Lily Shah October 4, 2019 at 1:11 pm Reply

      Yes i do know this answer because during the first night i had to stay in the normal ward and my husband could not stay in during that time. So for normal ward. husbands are NOT allowed to stay overnight.

      • Adila October 5, 2019 at 2:35 am Reply

        Okay! Thank you very much for your explanation. I’ve known that we can have one of our female family members to accompany us (from my experience staying in a normal ward for my dengue infection). Just wanted to know if they gave special treatment for women who just gave labour and would allow husbands to accompany them. I guess not. 🙂

    Hi, Would like to know price RM3400 is C-Sec during year 2019? 4 Day 3Night stay means day 1 stay in, day 2 only operation? RM3400 is stay at First class single room or twin sharing room? Thanks

    • Lily Shah October 14, 2019 at 12:29 pm Reply

      Yes, day 2 only will operate coz there is preparation day before. i stayed in twin room for the RM3400.. but even if you stay in the single room(which is very limited and most people dont get chance stay there coz take turn according to list) it’s the same price if not mistaken..

    Hi, would like to check with you for c-sec, will they cover the wound with water proof plaster? Hear some dint cover and canot kena air. And the jahitan is by those clip or benang? Need to go back to buka benang?

    • Lily Shah October 14, 2019 at 12:26 pm Reply

      Yes, they will cover… but only for first few days.. i think before balik nurse will open it and spray some cold spray…. Dr said can kena air no problem.. just make sure to properly dry it after… so after mandi and wipe with towel.. let it airdry or use hairdryer in cool mode to dry.. No i didn’t need to go back to buka benang.. i think that one old method…

    • Lily Shah October 24, 2019 at 9:48 am Reply

      baby will always be with you. Nurse will only take to bath them in the morning.. changing of diapers is yourself and they will come in to check and guide you to make sure breastfeeding correctly. they will come in time to time to check on baby for jaundice etc.

    Hi Mummy

    Is the C-Sec Cost also determined by the specialist we chose also? or all the specialist fees also the same?

    • Lily Shah October 30, 2019 at 11:55 am Reply

      This i’m actually not too sure. but Dr Azmi (my doctor) is no 2 in the hospital and the fees are quite okay i guess if you compare to a private hospital.

    Hi! Thanks so much for sharing your experience, I stumbled across it looking for information on my upcoming pregnancy. I would like to register for FPP too, but I’m wondering if it is really a problem that I don’t get the pink book? From your post you mentioned you got questioned quite a bit. During my first pregnancy, the klinik kesihatan discouraged me from coming in to get a pink book, they said I don’t need one – even if I plan to deliver at a government hospital. Just bring the book from the private hospital.

    • Lily Shah October 30, 2019 at 11:53 am Reply

      Hye dear, thanks for reading and dropping by my blog! I think not having the pink book shouldn’t be a problem if you don’t plan to continue checkups at KK after birth. i got it because i continued my checkups at KK and they really check up on you after giving birth and make sure you are okay (at least the nurses that i got la…) your first child did you register for a book at KK for their monthly check up and shots?

      • Ruzi October 30, 2019 at 7:20 pm Reply

        Thanks, that’s a great tip. I guess it would be a good idea to get the pink book for the follow ups. It’s just a bit inconvenient for me to go to the local klinik kesihatan for particular reasons . My first child’s shots were never done in the klinik kesihatan. We always used our company medical benefits for these. Thanks again!

    You mentioned about the 3k deposit during registration, would that be on the day you’re admitted or when you start seeing the specialist at 7months? I’m abit confused hehe.

      on the day of admission when you having the baby.

    hi there mummy,
    the information is really good. thank you for sharing.
    i have some to ask.
    1) i understand that u opt for FPP upon checkup after 7month.
    Does it mean that on 7months, we must go to the hospital for check up?
    what if all the while, i check at KK, then during delivery time only i admit to hospital, then opt for fpp is that possible?

    2) to opt for c-sec, do i need to make early arrangement?
    3) can we opt for c-sec instead of natural?
    4) for c-sec, can we choose the date for c-sec? or it is determine by doctor?
    5) i saw your post, that you mentioned about epidural. for c-sec, still require epidural? or not require?
    6) lastly i have a concern especially after c-sec, will the wound be tear off? i am worried of the recovery.

    • Lily Shah February 11, 2020 at 2:59 pm Reply

      Hye! thank for stoping by my blog!

      1.Don’t think that’s possible because FPP has quota and it’s always full.. if u decide to go for FPP don’t delay in booking or you will miss out. it depends on your due date and doctor availability around your due date.. heard some mummy call to book FPP at 5 months pregnant pun dah penuh during her due date. once u opt for FPP you mmg go see your chosen doctor 7 months onwards.
      2.Depends on which doc you get, my doctor asked me only around 36 weeks. i think some docs don’t even discuss it if there’s no problem with your baby and its safe for natural delivery.
      3. i opted for c-sec.. so ya i guess.. haha
      4. doctor will advice a date, so you can opt around the date he discuss.. i opted earlier than he adviced for my second baby and opted for later for my first coz i wanted to attend a wedding first haha
      5. yes you need epidural to kebaskan your bottom half for the c-sec surgery.
      6. i didn’t have any problem as long as you follow doctor’s advice to keep it clean and dry. i flew to kuching just after 10 days.. for me wasn’t too sakit or anything.
      Hope i answered all your questions and hope it helps! 😀

    you are providing us with very good information. Can u advise the list of items to bring to hospital for mommy and baby? And over the night , will the baby sleep with the mother or the nurses will jaga

    • Lily Shah August 21, 2020 at 11:13 pm Reply

      Hye! Thanks for reading my blog! Sure, i would say bring change of clothes for mummy, a few newborn day clothes and night clothes for baby (coz dunno stay there how long), bring baby toiletries as well because the nurse will mandikan in the mornings. you can bring a small towel also if you want, then maternity pad, diapers of course for baby. swaddle, topi, mittens, actually a lot la! belum include ur tech stuff lagi like charger fon n all that hahaha but i think these are the most important that i rememberla. and yes baby will sleep with mummy because you need to breastfeed your baby. Hospital Putrajaya pro breastfeeding so nurses will help in that too.
