What Our Members Have to Say:

“As a foreigner in China, it is super scary and confusing when trying to figure the hospital system. I found that I could relate to the instructors in this course because they are also Westerners living in China. To find good, reliable, and honest information is super difficult in China. I am very thankful for this course, as it answered many of my questions and gave me peace of mind.” ― Riaan, Originally from South Africa
“I discovered the course one month before giving birth as a foreigner in China. It definitely helped to ease my anxiety common among future mothers, especially when going through the process far from one’s own country. The videos were prepared by professionals who not only have extensive knowledge in the field of prenatal and postpartum care, but are also familiar with its specifics in China. Each lesson is divided into easy to follow sections covering the issues that expat parents struggle with.” ― Anna, Originally from Poland
