    Question Good OBGY for twins?

    Hi,

    I've just been told I'm having twins & wanted to know if there were any OBGY's that anyone has heard of that have experience with identical twins & high risk pregnancies?

    Many thanks,

    JDee

    Hi JDee,

    I am told Dr Alexander Doo is a very experienced Dr who handles alot of twins. I went to Lucy Lord and was referred to Queen Mary, who's got a specialist team for high risk pregnancies, plus it has the NICU there, since there's a high chance of premature birth. I highly recommend the Queen Mary Drs.

    Hello JDee! Congratulations on your twins! I am one of the three mothers expecting twins in November that Rani mentioned.

    I use Dr. Dawkins and he is fantastic. He is attentive, laid back, which I like, and he is very good at answering questions, and is prompt in responding if you have any questions outside of appointment times. He came highly recommended by two other OBs who said he is one of the best for twin and high risk pregnancies.

    I know the other two twin-moms-to-be expecting in November each use a different OB, so there seem to be plenty of good docs to choose from here in Hong Kong.

    I too have been told that Queen Mary is the best place to deliver twins because of their NICU... but have also been told that after 36 weeks, any of the private hospitals can handle the delivery of twins and most complications that may arise.

    Best of Luck! Please feel free to PM me if you have any other questions about Dawkins... or if you would like, just add a reply to one of our November forum strings to ask the other two ladies.

    I agree with A&A, after 36 weeks, probably any of the private hospitals can handle the delivery of twins and most complications that may arise. However, just in case it's a premature birth, I'd recommend you to register at QM beforehand - I'm sure whichever Dr you choose would tell you the same thing. I ended up having check ups at Lucy's and QM.

    Great point, Corina,

    I have registered at Queen Mary/Tsan Yuk just in case... although, the more I think about it, the more I think I will just plan on delivering at QM regardless.

    A&A, do you have a high risk pregnancy? Coz I believe the reviews for QM for a normal pregnancy is mixed, while almost all reviews for the high risk team is good.
