Pregnant in Taipei...looking for advice

Postby Aili » Thu Jul 02, 2015 17:51

Hi everybody !

My husband and I moved to Taipei a few month ago and newly realised that I'm pregnant...!
I'm a bit lost there...I checked the infos on the other discussions topics but most of them seem to be bit out of date...Would anyone have information/recommandations on doctors, hospitals...but also on discussion/prenatal groups if they exist, sport/yoga classes, when possible in English ? ...Any information is more than welcome !
Thanks for your advices !

Congratulations, Aili! The other topics may be a bit old but most are still relevant! Most of the mothers have migrated over to FB.

Doctor recommendations:

Adventist Hospital - Pei Lin still very popular.

Chung Shan - Jean Chang, Monty Li (Bernice Chen has been highly recommended here but is no longer attending births as I understand it).

There is also a water birth clinic that is highly recommended. After my time birthing but I know quite a few women who have had their babies there.

My friend and co-moderator Angie Chang is a doula here, serving English-speaking women all over Taiwan. She runs childbirth education classes. On holiday right now but I will ask her to check in here to connect with you. Her classes are a great way to learn about what to expect here, how to choose a doc, writing your birth plan, etc, in addition to meeting other expectant parents. An excellent resource.

For fitness, my other friend Colleen Peterson can be of assistance with pregnancy and postpartum fitness. She offers one-on-one classes as well as group classes at the Community Services Center.

There is a pregnancy massage place but I will have to a search for you.

Other great resources for after baby is born but this will keep you busy enough in these early days :-)

Hi everyone,

A couple of questions:

Just Jennifer, would you be able to share the Facebook resources people have been using?
I am not in Taipei yet and can't find much info online that's recent.

Aili, who did you see in the end and would you recommend them?

Hope you are both well!

Hi Gwladys, and welcome!

I'll have to send you a PM as the groups have mostly become 'Secret' for privacy/security reasons.

Hi Just Jennifer, I'm in Taipei and just found out I'm pregnant. I wondered whether you could also send me some info on pregnancy services please? I have an obstetrician however I'm interested in connecting with other mums to be or any other pregnancy friendly social activities. Thanks in advance for your help.
