    I gave birth yesterday at the Matilda Hospital and Dr Alex Doo delivered my little girl.

    It was my third baby, in as many years, so I was hoping for a short and sweet labour. Turned out to be 15 hours long but I put that down to having to be induced. To cut a long story short (literally) I went from 4cm to 10cm in 10 minutes! Even after receiving an epirdural, I began to get breakthrough pain as I dilated so quickly.

    Dr Doo raced in to the delivery room as soon as they told him I had dilated from 5 to 10 in 10 minutes.

    He delivered my baby in 2 pushes without any tearing or cuts and he truly is an amazing Doctor.

    If you are looking for the best Obstetrician in Hong Kong to deliver your baby, then look no further than Dr Alex Doo. You can find him at his clinic in Central, at The Women's Clinic in Central Building (3rd Floor).

    Thanks Dr Doo, you're the best!

    dr. doo plus matilda

    Does anyone have any idea how much a c-section (heart problem) will cost if I have it done in Matilda and with Dr. Alex Doo. Including hospital fees and the professional fee. I'm currently 30 weeks pregnant already and my husband has decided for me to give birth there in H.K.. We are planning to go there this coming wednesday for a doctor's consultation and a choice of hospital to where I'm gonna give birth to. Please advice and recommend tnx :)

    I'm not sure if it changes according to the obstetrician but i had a c-section 20 months ago at the Matilda, stayed in a private room and it cost $115,000 or thereabouts all in. Am due to have another c-section in 5 weeks so anticipating a similar if not higher charge. Thankfully we have great insurance.

    Dr Gosh.

    You'll have to find out if you can still get a bed. Last year it would have been impossible at this late notice but not sure about this year. For the most part people are advised to get an obstetrician in HK around week 6 or 8 to guarantee a room!
