Giving Birth in Hong Kong

Public hospitals in Hong Kong announced that they would stop accepting appointments for delivery this year from non-local expectant mothers. The majority of these non-local women are, of course, from across the border. Last year, 88,000 babies were born in Hong Kong, over 40,000 of them to mothers from the mainland. The surge in their numbers over the past few years has frightened Hong Kong. The proble is the lack of bed space for Hong Kong mothers-to-be, who are being forced to make their hospital appointments earlier and earlier to secure delivery services. Mainland women are seen to be taking up the resources that should have been used for local women.
