    Inflatable Ring?

    Hi,

    My wife and I are expecting on Feb. We just went for a class in Kwong Wah Hospital so that I could be with her during the delivery. They mentioned some of the stuff you have but not the inflatable ring. When/where/why exactly do you have to use it?? We are preparing everything and do not want to bring anything unnecessary.
    Thks in advance. And pls add anything in addition to the thing you have.

    Happyparents

    Congratulations HappyParents!

    The Inflatable ring was a must for me! You're so sore after a vaginal birth that sitting in a chair is uncomfortable without one. ;-)

    Question Re: Inflatable Ring

    Where can I buy it? Am on Kowloon side. Also is there any place which rents out TENS machines alternatively can I buy it someplace? Any idea about the cost?

    I bought a swimming ring from the $10 store. You can also try any toy store or Toys R Us. You can rent a Tens Machine from Everdawn and Annerley. Both are listed here:

    I havent noticed in the list - baby clothing for when they are in the hospital like vests and sleep suits. Do the private hospitals supply clothing for the babies whilst they are in hospital? also do they supply nighties for us too?. I will be having my baby at the Matilda in May. THANKS

    Hi, Kimmi,

    I just delivered at the Matilda in Nov. They provide the clothes for the babies until the day you leave then you put baby's own clothes on to take him/her home. I think if you want to, you could also provide them with your own baby clothes from the start but why bother?

    They also provide you with nighties but i wore my own. A lot of the moms i saw were also wearing their own clothes. Some of us used the Matilda robe on top when walking around in public - it's nice and warm.

    Matilda gives you a great experience - enjoy it!
