An Expat Talks about What is Was Like Having a Baby in
Hong Kong, Hong Kong
What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
How recently did you give birth in the country that you are reporting on?
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...
Delivered at Matilda International Hospital.
Stayed 3 nights. Delivery was induction and Epidural. Hospital was fantastic.

How did you choose your doctor, midwife or other type of medical professional?
Saw OB/GYN at Central Health Medical Centre HK. Recommended by friend. Was very happy with her. Midwife (British Ex-pat) was hospital staff and she was fabulous.
If you were to have another child in this country, would you do anything differently in terms of preparation and/or the delivery?
No, and I would have another baby in HK over having one in my home country. (Australia)
If a friend of yours living in the same country were expecting, what advice would you give her?
Private Health Insurance is a must or you would have a rather large bill. (Of course if you are a resident here you are entitled to go to the government hospital for virtually free where the medical care is very good but the facilities can be lacking.)
