Chengdu Western Hospital

Review by Lisa Newsham, mychinasolutions.com

The location is easy to find as it is right off of the Shu Han Lu subway exit (line 2).

Cleanliness is typical for a public Chinese hospital.

They have 3 options for natural childbirth: 1. A shared room for labor, delivery and recovery. 2. A VIP room (1 person room), and 3. A birthing room, a 1 person room where you can labor, deliver and recover all in the same room. This room is designed to allow any number of people to accompany you.

English Level: Dr. Yang’s English is very good. The nurses are mostly limited to Pleco-like translators on phone.

Dr. Yang is one of the most Western-minded doctors I have met in Chengdu. He is very approachable, a very good teacher, and cares about his clients. He is available to answer questions and is very professional. He also has a very good bed-side manner.

Fathers are allowed to accompany their wives into the delivery room for a natural birth (not for a C-section).
