    For my case, i had natural, and in my standard room of 3 women, 2 of us had natural, dont know about the other women.

    However, when breastfeeding in the breastfeeding room, lots of mummies had c-section.

    So, i guess the percentage are really very high. It just doesnt reflect in the room i'm staying only.

    My experience in a HK public hospital was much better than anyone I spoke to who gave birth in a private one. Its just prejudice. They do what's necessary and don't lure people into c-sections as private hospitals do to collect more cash. HK public hospitals are really great for maternity and birth and cost absolutely nothing.... So I don't understand why pretentious expats boast with their choice of private as if it was an MBA club and think its so great. Be aware - if you have unusual complications, you will be carted off in the middle of child birth to a public hospital anyway - as they have more extensive facilities and also probably more experienced doctors.
