Can anyone with experience/knowledge about giving birth in Taiwan provide some information. If a woman were to have a baby in Taiwan, is Chang Gung hospital a good hospital or a bad one? Are there any particularly good doctors or hospitals? Ones to be avoided? Things one should look out for?
What about alternative methods – home birth with a midwife? Does anyone have knowledge of that in Taiwan. I once met a foreign woman with Taiwanese husband who gave birth in a bathtub in Taiwan. Anyone know about that?
I heard some Taiwan hospitals try to prevent the mother from breastfeeding for some ridiculous reason – true? Or that they try to separate the mother and child. Anyone have trouble letting the father watch the birth?
I understand that many moms-to-be bring a birth checklist in with them and discuss it with the docs and nurses in advance. Any trouble having them comply with mom’s requests? Other significant birthing issues? Circumcision? Etc.?
After the birth, I understand that the 40 days of being cared for by the inlaws is pretty much required, and silly as it might sound at first, it’s probably a good thing. Any tricky issues regarding that?
