A reader commented on the Expat Report Having a Baby in Guangzhou, China
Having-a-Baby-in-Guangzhou
Describe your experience giving birth there. What type of facility did you go to? What (if any) type of pain management did you use? How long did you stay in the hospital? Was it a positive experience? Etc...
I gave birth via c-section at VIP Birthing Center in Guangzhou. I stayed in hospital for 5 days and was given IV pain relief. It was a wonderful experience, the staff spoke some English and my husband was able to stay the entire week in our private room. (Continue)

it's ridiculous to be 'convinced' to have major surgery, how could anyone reccomend that when as with any surgery there is always a risk? 6 out of 7 women do not need c-sections. it just means more money for the doctors.

Review-of-Utahloy International School
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
Run down Falling down- constant patchup job. The gym is finally 'being built' but after many years of hearing about it. If it takes as long as the library my children will have gone (and all the fees we've paid that were ostensibly to support building). (Continue)

Review-of-Utahloy International School Zengcheng
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
Utahloy International School is an IB World School and that's the major reason why I choose this school for my children. In UIS Zengcheng campus, they have a standard size outdoor swimming pool, absolutely huge gardens and lake, a huge high class facility boarding house, I.T. facilities, 5 covered basketball courts, two large libraries, science laboratories etc. Same with the UIS Guangzhou campus except they don't have the swimming pool in there. The school is member of the ACAMIS and MUN. It offers extra-curricular activities like soccer, tennie, table-tennis, drama, choir, basketball, mini-gym, skipping, art. They also offer 8 mother tongue languages like chinese, korean, japanese, french, german, spanish and hindi. (Continue)
