School is back in session, autumn has arrived, and beijingkids is here to present our latest October issue on pregnancy. Giving birth in Beijing can be a scary thought at first, especially if you don’t know where to start – so we’ve rounded up a great selection of international and Chinese hospitals for moms-to-be. For new moms, Jennifer Bushman brings you a 9-month countdown with what to expect during your pregnancy, while nutritionist Olivia Lee provides updated advice on pregnancy nutrition. If you’re in need of a helping hand, pick up some tips from Charlotte Moreau on how to find a great ayi for both your home and your family. And if you’re thinking of expanding your family from three to four, read about how to speak with your first child about an incoming sibling. Also learn important pregnancy vocabulary with columnist Jennifer Ambrose.
With Halloween around the corner, find out where to pick up your frightening costumes in Beijing. Stay warm by hitting the kitchen with this month’s Food for Thought recipe, a delicious soup for autumn and read about where to have your pumpkin treats – from pumpkin soup to pumpkin pie. Fall also means a changing of leaves and there’s no better place to see them than on a hike around Fragrant Hills Park. For an ambitious itinerary, energetic families with older kids can also pair the hike with a trip to Beijing Botanical Gardens. Elsewhere, learn about how to stay active with the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts in Beijing.
As always, find kid-friendly events, search our Directories for anything and everything you’ll need in Beijing, and read about other families’ travel destinations.
