Moving to a new country is a headache, even for the most travelled and accomplished of backpackers. However, one aspect of moving to Hong Kong which has been fraught with the most questions and concerns is Maternity. Consider giving birth in Canada is practically free, and pregnancy in Hong Kong is potentially one of the most expensive in the world. Families wanting to start a family have had to think twice, and conduct some extra due diligence, not only with respect to cost and insurance considerations, but also in terms of maternity option and best practices, different in the “east” compared to back home in the “west”.
This discussion panel brings together three specialists that view maternity from three different angles: a medical doctor, a Chinese medicine nutritionist, and an insurance expert. The panelists will provide a brief overview of their view of maternity, while leaving much of the time open to answer the most common questions, as prepared by the moderator and follow-up questions from the audience.
