An Expat Talks about What is Was Like Having a Baby in Shanghai, China

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Shanghai

How recently did you give birth in the country that you are reporting on?

July 21st 2010

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 went to Shanghai East International/ private clinic in Pudong. I had a wonderful experience! I choose a British doctor (Dr. Mahad) and all my wishes and requests were full field. I had a natural birth with a epidural.10 hours labor. The staff was great! spoke English very well.I was treated like I was in 5 star hotel :-)

How did you choose your doctor, midwife or other type of medical professional?

I research for expats on line comments and i got few names. I visit a couple doctors on my earlier pregnancy and I felt more calm and confident when I meet Dr Mahad. I was very scare to have the baby in China and he gave me the confidence that everything was fine.

If you were to have another child in this country, would you do anything differently in terms of preparation and/or the delivery?

For sure I would have.I would try to do all the same as my pass experience.

If a friend of yours living in the same country were expecting a baby, what advice would you give her?

Get in touch with other expats that have similar requirements as you of comfort,language and expectation of service. Interview different doctors and trust your heart. Ask as many questions that comes to mind before making a decision of the hospital.
