What If I Go Into Labor During Lockdown?
With the lockdowns in Shanghai, quite a number of people here in Beijing have started stocking up on food and daily supplies, in case we go into lockdown here. But for expecting mothers and their families, there’s a much more pressing concern than how much toilet paper and instant noodles to store at home.
According to Oasis International Hospital, there are procedures in place specifically for this. However, they’d like to stress that these procedures might be specific to Oasis International Hospital. If you’re delivering at another hospital, it’s best to contact them immediately and have a backup plan in place just in case.
Currently, one person is allowed to accompany the mother during delivery, but it’s best to check with the specific hospital where you’ll be delivering for that hospital’s rules and regulations, as they might be different than those of Oasis.
