    Hello everybody,

    I am moving to Hong Kong in December 08.

    Charlietwo, I am also due in May!
    NYCMOM, I have a 17 month toddler too!


    I will have to use the public system, as my health insurance does not cover maternity services.

    As far as I have researched, there is hardly any childcare for under twos (except for live-in helpers). I have been working part-time in the UK since my son turned one, so it will a bit strange now to go back to be being full-time mom again. But given that I am changing countries, I am sure I'll feel busy until I get settled, and soon after that the other baby will arrive.

    I think the best way to avoid feeling lonely is to find somebody who is in the similar situation like you- no family, new country, new baby. So lets keep in touch!

    Welcome Neringapri!

    Do you know yet where you will be living in HK? I am a stay-at-home full time mom, but really looking forward to finding a live-in helper with a new baby in January. It will be quite an adjustment to have help like this since I am use to doing everything on my own, but being free of cleaning dishes and bathrooms will leave any more time for me to be with the kids, so I am thrilled about that! We are looking at Pokfulam, Repulse Bay, and Tai Tam areas to live, they all seem very expat friendly with lots of child-friendly activities and preschools/playgroups and away from the pollution of the main city area.

    Feel free to PM me, stay in touch!
