  1. Hi wow. I am Monica from US. I have serious back pain during last few months. It really affects my work and life. Is there any good place to go that can solve my problem? I have been to several Chinese clinics nearby, they can not listen to my problems in English and doctors only prescribed medicines, which is not helpful to me at all.

    • To Mirriam and other pregnant expats:
      There is an OB/GYN hopital in Wuhan which provides English services during antenatal check and at the stages of labour. The services are offered by an English speaking nurse or a bilingual customer service. The name of the hospital is Wuhan Baijia Maternity Hospital. Many expats have given birth at this hospital. The website of this hospital is http://en.whbjyy.com. The phone number is 66666333. Hope this information is helpful for the expats who need it.
