    Anyone due to give birth at the QEH this September?

    Hi everyone,

    I arrived from the Philippines two weeks ago and am delivering at QEH this September. I am a much older (!) mom-to-be and this is my first pregnancy.

    I had a midwives pre-natal check-up done the other day and my next check-up (supposedly with a doctor this time round) is in two weeks.

    My experience with the public system has been okay so far but as the day draws near, some nerves have begun to kick in...compounded by the fact that my partner, who is not a HK resident, won't be here literally until a day or two before the baby's expected arrival.

    Anyone by any chance delivering their LO at the QEH in September too?

    (As an aside, this forum has helped me a lot and am grateful to everyone for sharing what they know as well as their personal experience - so thank you!)

    I'm due end of August and delivering at Queen Mary.

    What exactly are your questions?

    I have given birth two times previously at Queen Mary under the public system.

    Maybe you can also ask your questions at HK moms form on facebook. It is a lot more active than here I think.

    Thank you for the replies, Cactus and Rani!

    I don't have Fb actually (I must be the only person in the universe without Fb I reckon!).

    Bubs was born a few days' ahead of her EDD and she is doing well, except for some mild jaundice.

    Hope you both are well :)
