    What does QMH provide during and after labour?

    Since the H7N9 scare has stopped the QMH tours, I'm left with many questions before my march delivery so am hoping new mums can help me prepare for the labour experience.

    Specifically, what does QMH provide during and after labour?

    I plan on staying home as long as possible so hubby can join me regardless of the hour but do I need to bring my own pads, bed covers, hot/cold packs, tens machine, birth ball, hot water bottle, disposable underpants etc?

    And what about baby? Do they provide a free beanie, nappies, cotton wool etc or do I have to bring everything myself?

    Thanks for your help!

    If you're having baby at QMH you need to bring pretty much everything. The 7-11 stocks a lot of stuff, but if you're going to Tsan Yuk, the little store Ah Chi Ko stocks everything. Here's a good list

    I am in the same situation - had a whole list of questions ready for the tour this Saturday but cancelled :(
    Last time I was at Tsan Yuk I went to that baby shop round the corner and asked for the hospital bag, $180 i think which had disposable pants, maternity pads, and the large ones for the bed and the bottle to go the toilet with!
