    Home Birth Midwife

    Hello,
    I am currently living in Hong Kong and am pregnant with my first baby. I have followed a few threads concerning home births in HK and the difficulties involved. Can anyone give me information about internationally trained midwives that would be willing to assist in a home birth? Or, where I could find information about international midwives willing to travel? Any information would be VERY much appreciated as I am wanting as natural a birth experience as possible!

    If you have an SCMP subscription, there was a long article on this last year. (http://www.scmp.com/article/999553/special-delivery.)

    Hi there!

    Hulda at Annerly is currently the only midwife that will do a homebirth in Hong Kong, and she does not normally take first time Mums. I know Babara Harper does home births. http://www.waterbirth.org/barbara-harper---founder

    Good luck finding the right one for you. You will need all the support you can get for a home birth in Hong Kong.

    Hi, I am a midwife/doula. I could be with you during your labour/birth and for the immediate post-partum period. If you don't have any luck finding a home birth midwife to deliver your baby at home please feel free to message me.

    Evelyne, has Barbara Harper moved to Hong Kong? I thought she was based in the US? I know she came here for a talk last year. If she is indeed here, I would seriously look into having her as my midwife/doula.
