Hi Nadya,

I'll bump this up, maybe someone will be able to answer properly. I don't know anyone who has given birth there or attended any births there myself. I could share my experiences at Shin Kong or Veterans Hospital if needed.

nwr, is this the hospital you're talking about?

Just checking because I wanted to see if it had been added to the Taiwanease directory already.

Hi Jennifer - yes - that's the one!
It's a 5 minute walk from the Veterans Hospital, but seems to be newer. There is even a postpartum nursing center - like a hotel with medical staff - after you give birth to support you: http://mababy.org.tw/, http://mababy.org.tw/room.html,
and also classes (I assume in Chinese, though)

Since no one has answered, in general we have had far better than average experiences there. It's spacious, clean and orderly, and our family has always received good care there, up to a one-week stay for treatment of an infection once. Can't help about ob-gyn.
