    Newly pregnant with no clue!

    Hi all!

    I am very newly pregnant and have absolutely no clue if I'm meant to sit back and relax for a few months, or whether I need to start booking stuff.

    Thoughts? Advice? Someone tell me what to do!

    I do know this much - we don't have medical insurance, beyond what is covered by our employers - so we'll be opting for the Queen Mary hospital.

    So now do we pick the doctor, then mid-wife? I have no idea what I am doing!

    Please help!

    THANKS

    Congrats dear!

    With Queen Mary, you cannot choose your own doctor and midwife.. But your records is in their system so that won't be a problem..

    Also, you cannot just choose QMH just because you wanted to.. Your hospital will depends on where you live. As they will require you to provide address proof. They will send you to hospital that covers your area.

    Hi, I'm as clueless as jhl. Newly pregnant and newly arrived in HK. :) Can I know if I can choose QMH? I live in Causeway Bay and hoping to go to QMH.
