    where to find a midwife?

    Hi all,

    I would like to prepare my birth plan, and I'm considering having labour at home instead of hospital, then go to hospital for active labour and delivery.
    That would to be more comfortable, because I can stay in a calm familiar room, having snacks and drinks whenever I want and having my husband with me (not allowed in public hosp).

    Annerley's doula service is quite pricey to me , are there any other options?

    Thanks

    What is rent-a-mum? Are they doula's or just domestic helpers/nannies? I'm just curious.

    Rent-a-mum is a nanny agency.

    home births aren't actually legal in hk because of immigration issues. you can technically have the baby at home, but must have police come by to see the baby with umbilical cord attached to "prove" the child was really born in hk. doulas/midwives in hong kong don't want to shoulder that kind of responsibility and will help you at home, then join you at hospital for actual delivery.

    just make sure your doctor is supportive of a natural approach. that and having a midwife present at the hospital, i believe, is the best way to go. good luck!
