    Thanks. I've spoken to Mrs Chee. She doesn't know of any confinement ladies and she holds her classes in Wan Chai, and i don't quite enjoy the travelling. She has mentioned the tape but we do not have any tape player. I would like my husband to attend the classes but he's working overtime almost everyday so i was thinking of watching a DVD together instead.

    I certainly don't mind a Malaysian nanny, or any other nationalities. However, i prefer a live out nanny as we do not have much walking space in the 300+ sq ft flat we live in. I appreciate all recommendations and will contact the Malaysian nannies if you could provide me with the numbers.

    Many thanks!

    You should also try Annerley Midwives and Rent-A-Mum. I've used Rent-A-Mum previously and would recommend them for locating a short term nanny - nannies in HK don't come cheap.


    Also Yvonne Heavyside offers 'Baby Basics' courses at home for first time parents (and second if you've forgotten everything) which my husband did before our daughter was born.

    Both Annerley Midwives and Yvonne Heavyside are listed on the web-site.

    A midwife came to my place and gave me a "crash course" in baby delivery, and breast feeding techniques. It was quite useful!

    If you need the contact, pm me.

    I've contacted Mrs Chee, of Everdawn Midwives, and will arrange with her a suitable meeting.

    another forum?

    Dacia,

    You might also try posting your question about confinement ladies on the Chinese language web forum www.baby-kingdom.com

    On the left-hand column, choose the "chan qian, chan hou" (before the birth, after the birth) section.

    It's a very active board and although most of the women post and reply in Chinese, I have seen some postings and replies in English.
