    Asking for OB recommendation and advice on ultrasound scan

    I am newly pregnant (5th week) and looking for a good OB close to where I live (Cyberport, South Island). Prefer female. Also I have a question for ultrasound scan: when should I have the first scan? 12th week? is it harmful to have one before the 12th week?
    Thanks in advance!

    I can only recommend you my doctor who is very caring and patient - Dr Patrick Chan at 2522 2500 in Central. I went to see him at 6 weeks but I think should be around after 8 weeks to see clearly with ultrasound. Maybe you can give the clinic a call to find out.

    Hi and congrats!

    I live in Pok Fu Lam and go to Dr Sally Ferguson in Wan Chai. I am having my first baby and I'm at 29 weeks and found her to be good so far.

    She is at OT&P, Room 1501-1503 Shui On Centre, 8 Harbour Rd, Wan Chai. Ph: 2824 9112.

    I had my first visit with her at 6 weeks, which she did do a scan. The next scan was at 12 weeks and then 20 weeks. Haven't had one since then. She is doing another one at 32 weeks.

    Good Luck!

    To paraphrase our (US) ob-gyn from the first child two years ago--if ultrasounds were bad for babies, ob-gyns would know because they ultrasound their own babies for the staff all the time.

    Umm, that removes a lot of my worries!

    Wonder if moms here have any hospital recommendation for me as well! Anyone close to where I live?

    Tomato,

    Do you have maternity insurance? The closest public hospital is Queen Mary if you don't. Private Hospitals on the Island are Matilda and Adventist.

    Hi again.

    The closest public hospital is Queen Mary. And then the private ones are near the Peak or Happy Valley.

    I'm going to the Matilda which is on the Peak (http://www.matilda.org/eng/index.php)

    Then I also know of the Adventist also on the Peak (http://www.hkah.org.hk/new/eng/index.htm) and the Sanatorium in Happy Valley(http://www.hksh.org.hk/eng/index.html)

    I know it sounds really early, but you need to start looking into these hospitals if you decide to go private, because you have to book and bookings can fill fast! I had to book into the Matilda at my first 6 week OB appointment.
