Q: Any good hospitals in Wuhan for foreigners to have a baby?

We are expecting a baby this year and want to find a better hospital. Have anyone of you guys had the same experience here? It would be better if we could find a hospital with English speaking doctors. By the way, we live in Hankou and my wife prefers to have a natural birth.

Hi and first up congratulations to you both on becoming parents!!

since you are living in hankou so I would suggest try to go to Tongji University teaching hospital in chinese it is known as tongji daxue you can find english speaking doctors over there or else I would suggest you to come to wuchang and look for the doctors who can speak english either in Renmin Hospital which is near the wuchang railway station  and the hospital is known as renmin yiyuan or you can also come to zhongnan hospital which is located at donghu lu , you can tell the taxi driver to take you to Zhongnan yiyuan but its far from hankou .Actually both these hospital are the teaching hospitals of wuhan university .

I would suggest avoiding all incarnations of Maria Maternity Hospitals unless you have a lot of money. They advertise one price, but by the time you get there, they more than double the costs you have to pay. And they refuse all service until you pay all additional, hidden fees.

 

They are one of the cleanest, most professional places I've seen in China, but... they cheat. I felt safe inside because they actually seemed to be doing everything right... other than the hidden fees part.

 

If you go against the government inside the buildings like I did, you'll be brought in for questioning, and they'll be asking about your "mental health." You know... wanting to see your baby on the ultrasound? Yeah, only nutjobs do that, and then they'll call you a fugging psycho and all that stuff. And "warmly encourage" you to obey the laws and statues of the People's Republic of China.

 

However, if you've got the money, they're definitely worth it. They WILL rip you off if you're a foreigner, though. Here's the address:

 

武汉玛丽亚妇产医院 (click for baidu map link)

128 Zhongshan Rd, Wuchang, Wuhan, Hubei, China

+86 27 8885 8965

 

EDIT: when I was there, I was able to speak English with a doctor there. The doctor's English was a little rough, but... we were able to communicate. They do seem to have a lot of other birth options like "Hypno-birthing," "Hydro-birthing," etc. So I'm sure they're fine with a natural childbirth. However, don't be surprised if they say, "The baby can't come out, because it is a foreigner. C-Section!"

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
