    I want Matilda!!!

    I have to choose a gyn and it seems to be a lot of different aspects to be considered. I do know that I want to deliver at Matilda but I guess with the waitinglists you need to be with a DR who only deliveres there.

    Which Drs only deliver at Matilda?
    Of course I want a very good, nice, competent, friendly DR any recommendations??

    Dr. Arabinda Ghosh is a resident there and almost guaranteed to be able to get you a room.

    My cousin changed her mind LAST MINUTE from going with a pre-booked caesarian to trying VBAC for her second baby and Dr. Ghosh was able to adjust to this without blinking an eye. This happened in September (when bookings were very tight) and Ghosh was fine with her cancelling her elective booking only two weeks before she was due for the surgery. She ended up having the baby naturally about two days from her due date and she was still able to get a private room on the birth day with no apparent problems.

    I just noticed on the Matilda's website this morning that from 1st Feb 2009 they are requiring you to pay a deposit of HK$20,000 to confirm your spot. See their new Maternity Bookings procedure here:

    I see Dr Patrick Chan, who works at the Matilda some of the time (that's how I met him, early pregnancy bleeding newly arrived in HK, phoned Matilda and saw Dr Chan an hour later), and he had no problem booking me in there. Subsequently changed plans and am at QMH. He's a nice guy and we feel very comfortable with him. Usually see him at his clinic in Central. You would have to ask him about his 'philosophy' on childbirth though, I haven't discussed it with him.

    I just clicked that link that joshmum posted and it says effective 1st feb 2008! not 2009.

    I delivered there 3 months ago and was not asked to pay a deposit.
