We asked expat moms who gave birth in China about their experiences and advice they have for other moms to be. They said...

"Be sure to research any clinics or hospitals you may be using in advance, as well as information in regards to the delivery practices, pain relief, and post-Birthing options. Ensure that you have comprehensive health insurance and gather information on any prenatal care packages available in your area. Have a “go-bag” ready for the hospital in advance. Attend a pre-natal class and visit the hospital you’re intending to go to during the labor. Book an appointment with a doctor who speaks your language and who is used to looking after expats. Finally, gather important documents such as valid passports, insurance certificates, and address information for the time when you need to apply for the baby’s birth certificate," commented one expat who made the move to China.

"After the birth, I was really anxious with all these terrible stories of contaminated milk in China... The only solution was to find imported milk for Babies.. at the beginning I filled my suitcases up with baby milk each time I went back to Europe. Finally, I found (and it can help every mummies in China) a website that gives you a personal address in US and UK. I order Guigoz Baby milk and got it sent to me in China in one week. The shipping is really fast and you can also consolidate your buyings with your friends so you can share the fees," remarked another expat in Shanghai, China.
