When discharged from the hospital with a new baby, many new parents feel that they might need some extra support. Our postnatal home visits by midwives can save many new parents from worries, unnecessary visits back to the hospital or doctor — as well as preventing breastfeeding problems which can cause considerable pain and anguish.

Our programme starts with a visit from one of our midwives usually the day after the mother and baby are discharged from the hospital. The visits normally continue regularly for a period of around 3 weeks and are planned between you and your midwife. It enables families to properly adjust to their new situation, ensures that breastfeeding is well established and that parents' emotional well-being is secured.
Each visit is tailored according to the individual family's needs, with the emphasis being to focus on the most urgent issues present. In the early days this is quite often breastfeeding (or bottle-feeding); therefore, we will focus on the prevention of sore breasts and mastitis, show you different feeding positions, discuss how often and how long you need to feed your baby and how to know if your infant is getting enough milk.
As other issues then follow, you will be given the required support and advice to ensure that you are able to both fulfill and enjoy your role as a new parent. This typically includes:
This package includes 4 x 1-hour sessions. The packages are to be used within the first 6 months from the first visit. Visits are conducted on weekdays only; our midwives do not usually do home visits on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays but your care will be carefully planned with this in mind.

In the beginning, I questioned what we would be doing in class as I felt the videos gave all the info we needed, but on reflection, it became clear that the videos were just a starting point - the beauty of the classes was 2 whole hours of questions answered by experts who were honest and warm. As I'm sure you hear all the time, doctors appointments in HK are rushed and I never really feel like they have time for all my questions - let alone the 'silly' ones I don't even dare to ask. Yet at the Annerley classes, these questions were never deemed as silly or time-wasting - and attention was paid to every question or concern, no matter how trivial we may have thought it was.
With our first new addition to our family on the way and no idea what to expect, we signed up for Annerley's 4-week "Babies and Beyond" prenatal course. The course was everything we could have hoped for, covering every possible topic you could think of and offering very practical solutions to the very wide variety of challenges that being pregnant and having a newborn can throw at you. Over and above learning about giving birth and dealing with the first few weeks of parenthood, one of the biggest benefits to signing up for the course was being able to meet other couples going through all of the same emotions and concerns that we had been struggling through for weeks before. As a family, we could not be happier that we opted for Annerley, and we couldn't recommend their care highly enough.

To the incredible team at Annerley. Thank you so much to you all for the amazing care and support you gave us throughout our pregnancy journey. From day one you made us feel so welcome! We couldn't be more pleased with the quality of care we received along the way. My husband and I found the 'Babies and Beyond' informative and helpful and gave us opportunities to meet other lovely parents-to-be in a relaxed and fun way! With Annerley support, alongside the support of our private doctor, we have always felt like we were in the best hands and we couldn't have asked for a more sensitive, nurturing and caring service.

Thank you so much for all your help and support. We had relocated to Hong Kong and had no idea where to start! Fortunately, the Annerley team helped alleviate our anxieties and fears. The home visits were literally a life-saver and the breastfeeding assistance was fantastic. There is no way we would still be breastfeeding after five months, had it not been for the wonderful help. Our gorgeous boy is thriving and the Annerley team played a big part! Thanks again!
