    When are you due?
    Most hospitals are fully booked by the time you're 9 weeks pregnant. I managed to get my Matilda booking at 9 weeks - applied at 7 weeks but a friend of mine who applied at the same time got rejected. All depends on the doctor but I must say chances of getting a booking after 10 weeks pg are slim. Of course there are cancellations and sometimes people manage. There is always a public option which I don't think you have to book early/ Also make sure you have a good insurance private birth can cost up to 130000 HKD. I hope this helps. There are many threads on this forum about hospitals with plenty of info. It hear that drGhosh can sometimes get you in later in your pregnancy but you need to double check May or July will probably be too late to book.I hope the move goes smoothly and all the best!

    Hi FoxGod17,
    I'm also new to the forums and am booked into Matilda on Sept. 1st, although my due date has been adjusted to Aug 29th. I see Dr. Alexander Doo. He is great! I've had a difficult first trimester and am thankful I'd found him. I too come from the US (LA) and had recently flown back to see a Bev Hills specialist that people fly in from all around the world to see, and I can say that Dr. Doo is really top notch - comparable. It was his office that booked me into Matilda at 9 weeks (although we were advised to choose a hospital as early as 5 weeks). I'd say try and get booked in now because surprisingly, the rumor is that spaces are competitive.

    Congratulations to all of you! I'd love to meet up with you ladies very soon and to chat! I'm at 13 weeks now.
