    Moving to HK with 4 month old baby


    I am hoping somebody can give me advice on what it is like to move to HK with a young baby.

    I currently love in London and I am on maternity leave from my job as a clinical psychologist. My baby is 4 months old. My husband has been offered a job in HK and is really keen to go. I am much less sure... We are visiting HK in November to see if I like it.

    Has anyone been in a similar position and what were your experiences? How easy is it to build up a new network? Is it very hard being away from friends and family? We're you able to get a job in HK? Is it a good place to raise a family?

    Sorry for all the questions- I am finding it a difficult decision. I am particularly worried about the work situation as although I would like an extended period of maternity leave to look after my daughter I would eventually like to return back to work.

    Would you move??

    You have started in the right place. This space has lots of people in the same position.

    We moved when I was 21 weeks and flew home for the birth and then came back when bub was 11 days old. It is a good place to live with kids - esp below high school and where we love in Discovery Bay (80% expat community).

    If you do come, your first priority is waiting lists for primary ( even if you don't plan to stay that long - be prepared as places are hard to get in international schools). But other than that the parent network is as strong as you want and you and bub can have a great social scene.

    Good luck with it.
