    Usually a husband will only be allowed to be with you once you're moved to the delivery room. Most ladies tend to labour at home for a bit and not rush to the hospital. You can think about hiring a private mid-wife who can be with you at home.

    Hi Saijida, I too gave birth at q Mary last year & as rani said husbands are only allowed in once you're 3cm dilated & ready to labour. That was hard but you can be with your husband on the corridor outside until you're ready. That's what we did. With regard to the cost I think we paid $250 for 48 hours on a shared ward & a natural birth. They don't have private wards at q Mary as we enquired about that too. If you want a private room you have to go entirely private in which case no point going to q Mary. We're due with our second baby in December and will give birth there again. My experience with them was excellent & similar to the mums who have discussed this earlier. If you would like to discuss further please feel free to pm me.

    I'm sorry I just realized you're all referring to queen Elizabeth not queen Mary!! I assume the experience is similar at all public hospitals, the only difference being the private option which isn't avail at q Mary.

    Hi Saijida
    I gave birth to my daughter last June in QE. I had some major complication in 34WK and ended up in ICU for three weeks and my daughter in NICU for 3 weeks and baby ICU for 1 week. I had 2 major operations and blood transfusion. When I transferred to the general ward, I told my husband I wanted to go to private ward. My husband went and checked with the hospital accountant office and they told us not to do so, because then I will have to pay everything for the private ward price, including my two operations and we could end up paying up to 1 million HK. They told us that all the service will be the same just we will be in the private room or share a room with one other person. The room is basic but you will be paying lots of money.
    I am grateful I decided to give birth in QE, they have excellent doctors and they saved me and my baby's life. However, the nurses dont have have the best bedside manner , but that's just HK way.....if you decided to go private, I advise you go to some fancy place, like Matilda.
    However, if anything goes wrong , they will transfer you to the public hospital.
    All the best to you.
