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 :-)
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.
I went to a foreign hospital. The cares was the same and even better than what I would have had in Europe. The Chinese people are really attentive with the pregnant women.
