  • Booking

    Your obstetrician will book your maternity stay with us and will share important information about your pregnancy and history. Once we receive the booking we will send you a confirmation. It is best that the booking process is completed as early as possible as there are a limited number of rooms. This also ensures that there is plenty of time for you to complete classes, attend the information session and facilitates a smooth admission.

    Check-in online here once you have received our confirmation.

    We encourage you to draw up a birth plan, please send this to our maternity department by email (このメールアドレスはスパムボットから保護されています。閲覧するにはJavaScriptを有効にする必要があります。) or fax (2849 6246) before your admission so we are aware of your special requests. On admission the maternity team will discuss your preferences on labour to make the experience as fulfilling as possible.

    We make every effort to provide you with your choice of room, but can’t guarantee the type until the day you are admitted. There is no exact science in predicting due dates– babies set their own programme.

    If your booked room type is not available, you may choose a different available room. The published room category rate will apply.

  • Doctors and cover

    During your pregnancy please take time to discuss with your obstetrician your choice of paediatrician and anaesthetist. This will enable your obstetrician to ensure their availability for routine and emergency care during your delivery and stay with us.

  • Maternity team

    Matilda’s international team of midwives assist with the delivery of around a thousand babies a year. They appreciate every delivery is unique and every baby is special and are there for you with expert advice and care.

    We encourage continuing education and our midwives take up training in internationally recognised courses such as Advanced Life Support Obstetrics (ALSO) and the American Academy of Pediatrics Neonatal Resuscitation Programme (NRP).

    Midwives will help you with your individual needs and offer a high level of support as you get to know one another as a family, with partners welcome to be present at the delivery. Our midwives and lactation consultants give you full support in breastfeeding as well as establishing early skin-to-skin contact. We have one of the highest percentage of new mothers that choose to breastfeed (over 90%) amongst all private hospitals in Hong Kong, and encourage your baby to stay with you in the room to foster bonding and facilitate breastfeeding.

  • Baby’s safety

    For security reasons the nursery door is locked at all times and only parents are given the access right. A member of staff is stationed in the nursery and the area is covered by 24 hour CCTV.

    To prevent accidents please transport your baby in the cot between your room and the nursery.

    Should your baby need to be transferred to a public hospital, the government ambulance service may charge a transportation fee.

    All visitors must report to the nursing station on arrival to confirm your room number and ensure the visit is convenient for you.

    Your own children and other children over the age of 12 are allowed to visit, though there may be times when visiting is limited.


  • Community postnatal midwifery

    Our team of community midwives bring the unique care and support you received during your stay into your home on discharge from the hospital.

    They guide you as you adjust to becoming a new mum, assess and offer advice on the wellbeing of you and your baby, support breast feeding, talk about home safety and provide an important link when needed to your paediatrician, obstetrician and other healthcare professionals.

    Please speak to our staff during your hospital stay for details of a home visit or you can call 2849 0321 / e-mail to このメールアドレスはスパムボットから保護されています。閲覧するにはJavaScriptを有効にする必要があります。 for further details.

    Due to the COVID-19 situation, the community postnatal midwifery service is now suspended.

  • Matilda babies around the world

    Babies born at the hospital are warmly welcomed into the Matilda community. Their life’s journey started at the Peak in Hong Kong and it is fascinating to see where they are now.
