    i think they do, i was given a sheet of "birth plan" of what pain relief to choose from - I'm only 12 weeks & hasn't even seen doctor yet, so hasn't filled that in yet, but i recall seeing epidural on it. I'm still dithering if i want to do QEH/private.

    however, i also heard stories that in public hospitals that they have a quota on epidural for the day... better ask on your next doc's appointment.

    I believe there is a quota. Try not to get to the hospital too late as the quota maybe over for the day. I know of a friend who didn't get one.

    hello summer, I tried signing for the antenatal but the system won't let me the other day, I thought maybe I'm too early and they only let ppl past 2nd trimester or something... I'll try again later tonight. Did you sign up online or through nurse?

    My anomaly scan not till beginning of august and my first antenatal will be in a few weeks.. hope results are all okay.

    I don't know anyone else that plans / consider QEH at all... most ladies are on HK side.. Do you know anyone else?
