    Pregnant and moving to Hong Kong - need advice

    Hi all,

    I am currently 9 weeks pregnant and we are moving from London to Hong Kong the beginning of December.

    I will have had my prenatal appointments here and scan but how do I then transfer myself to the Hong Kong system? Can anyone give me advice on the next steps I muest take and whether I need to organise anything before i actually get to hong Kong?

    We also have a standard private health care but I know private is very expensive and I think ours covers up to 25k for standard delivery, so we are thinking of doing half publiv half private. Again any advice on thsi would be much appreciated.

    Jane

    Congratulations Jane and Welcome to HK!

    Have a read through this article and it should answer most of your questions.

    Pregnant in Hong Kong: Public vs. Private Hospitals - Hong Kong GeoBaby

    HK$25K will not get you very far if you deliver in a private hospital. You can definitely put that towards prenatal care. Would recommend popping into Annerley when you get here. They do free info sessions every week.
