    Moving to HK @ 23weeks.. need advice and help!

    Hi...
    Right now I'm 23weeks, I will be moving to HK sometime in July. Can anyone recommend a good OB?
    This is my second pregnancy, and I'm looking for a doctor that encourages natural birth, and will respect my birthing plan.
    I'll be living in Kowloon, and have been told that St.Teresa Hospital is the best to go to... is that true?

    Any suggestions will be great!!!

    Dr. Sally Ferguson, although she is across the harbor.

    St. Teresa is the best in terms of what?

    I think most would agree that Matilda is, overall, "the best".

    I agree with Sally Ferguson and the Matilda, both the best in my opinion. Dr Ferguson will definitely respect your wishes. I can also recommend Hulda Thorey as a doula if you want to take that route.

    Good luck in trying to get a bed booking there. They fill up very quickly and by the time you get to HK, the advanced bookings may be full to the beginning of next year.

    Thanks!!! I'm looking into Matilda Hospital now, the fees seem pretty reasonable, I hope there's space! Can anyone tell me what Dr. Sally Ferguson charges? Does she have an email address that I can write to?

    Welcome to Hong Kong! There are many very good hospitals here and there are very good doctors both in HK island and Kowloon. If you are staying in Kowloon, you may want to consider St. Teresa, Baptist or Union Hospital as they will be nearer and you will not have to struggle with traffic at the cross harbour tunnel when you are in labour. Of course the most important factor is that you find a doctor that you are comfortable with. Many doctors have 2 offices, one in HK (Central) and another in Kowloon (Tsim Sha Tsui). Good Luck! I am sure you will have a great birthing experience.

    I've been told by a doctor that I can't go to Matilda because there's no bed for late bookings, is this the case in most private hospitals? I'm feeling really frustrated, as I thought the private hospitals would have been a bit more accomodating, Is it really that difficult to get a bed?

    Matilda only has 3 birthing rooms and not a lot of beds, so that's why they aren't "accomodating". Good hospital, but not a big hospital.
    I know Sally Ferguson can work in Matilda, not sure about the other hospitals. And she charges about HK$1000 for each visit.
