Helping pregnant women in Hong Kong through pregnancy, birth and beyond for 20 years.
Annerley (formerly Annerley Community Midwifery Services and Annerley Midwives) is a small, privately run clinic that has been operating since 1995, when a British midwife, Ann Illingworth, set it up after resigning as a sister in charge of the Matilda International Hospital Maternity Unit. Since then, the clinic has grown and now has 9 members of staff – midwives, obstetrician (OBGYN), nurses and extremely valuable admin staff.
The midwives and doctors at Annerley offer unique and invaluable support throughout your pregnancy, birth and beyond – whether you are going through the public or the private system in Hong Kong. The aim of the support is to offer non-biased information relevant to your pregnancy to help you to know what type of experience you are hoping for, how to utilise and navigate the systems with professional support of midwives. Contact us for details.
