Dear FWH Team & Rici Nurses, It’s almost impossible to find words to express how thankful we are for all of your support in bringing our little wonder to the world! Especially to Dr. Zou for being her calm and dedicated self, always at our side through trying to get pregnant over and over again, a happy relaxed pregnancy, a not-so-relaxed delivery and post-partum care. To Mindy for making the delivery a good and special experience, and to both you and Louise for all your support and knowledge, being there day and night, reassuring us that we are not killing the baby. To the nurses team for your caring, professional and always smiling help through check-ups, night feedings and everything in between. To Dr. Ferguson, first of all for bringing this incredible team to life and for your medical wisdom and care. And to everybody else who was involved in this special experience. It is hard to imagine not seeing all of you on a weekly basis anymore. It feels to us like the happy end of an incredible journey which we were blessed and honoured to share with you!
Dear Dr. Ferguson – I want to thank you for the amazing care, attention & expertise you gave us during our complex pregnancy. It was hard but not once did we doubt we were not in best hands and lucky to be in Shanghai. I truly felt like an individual this time around compared to my first birth. I know the community feels the same! I am convinced you have super powers! HaHa I again thank you for being part of our journey in having our rainbow baby! Much love truly in awe!
Dear Dr Ferguson + Dr Dai, Thank you for the safe delivery of baby Kai Trau, and to Dr Zou + all the staff during the course of the pregnancy. What an amazing team you have who are always so attractive + caring.
Dearest Ferguson Women's Health team – Thank you for all you did to make our delivery experience so wonderful! We felt like we were in safe and capable hands every step of the way. We are so appreciative to you for your incredible care! Thank you!
Dear FWH team, Thank you very much for all your support throughout the pregnancy and beyond. Today I used the head down – clap on back technique the second time after my boy choked on a piece of carrot, and was able to quickly resolve the situation. Thanks again for everything.
Dear Dr. Dai, Thanks to you, we are holding in our arms our little miracle! We simply can’t express with words our appreciation to you and your team. You have been amazing! Thank you for always giving me/us options and respecting our wishes to a natural delivery. It couldn't have gone any better!
Dear Dr Ferguson, We cannot express enough gratitude at the service and care through the entire pregnancy and delivery. FWH made even ‘Labour’look relatively easy! Thank you so much for the care.
Dear Dr.Lu-Ferguson, Thank you for your kindness and care since the first time we met. I really enjoy the communication between us, and your positive energy makes me full of confidence in pregnancy and childbirth. I feel love and compassion for life in your eyes, and I am so glad that it is you for delivering ZuoZuo and YouYou. I have found that you are an empathetic person, which is expressed in gentle form. Grateful to meet, wish you all the best! PS: Thank you all in the Ferguson Team for your care and support, and thank you for giving me this beautiful journey. Wish more women be able to experience Ferguson Team's ideas.
Dear Dr. Ferguson: Thank you for the commitment in delivering our daughter Mila and taking great care about us. Our journey without you wouldn't have been the same.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Dr. Dai for everything you're done for us, for the great care we received at Ferguson's hospital, for your kindness and patient.
Dear Dr. Ferguson, FWH and RiCi team… With this little letter we would like to thank you for your support. It was a long journey full of surprises and you walked us through it with great confidence, knowledge, experience and professionalism. And more importantly with open hearts, good words, warm touch and positive energy. We are very grateful that our little Bruno came to the world surrounded by such amazing people. We would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! Dr. Ferguson for giving us strength, Louise for giving us great advice, Susan for giving us warmth, good words and her big heart, Julie for giving me the best breast massage ever :) And all FWH and RiCi team!!! You are all wonderful and amazing! We feel very blessed to have you around!!!
Dr. Dai, Thank you so much from the bottom of hearts for taking such good care of us during after the pregnancy as well as the delivery!! Because of your professionalism and great smiles, we felt like we were in good hands and that gave us peace of mind towards the big day. Thank you for helping deliver the most precious of our life!!
Dear Dr. Lu-Ferguson, Everything is the best wishes! Thank you for all you have done for my family, and you will forever have a place in our hearts! There are no words that can express our gratitude to you!
Dear Dr. Dai, Thank you for your empathy, professionalism and calmness in delivering Mika. I felt grateful and safe under your care and am so pleased the birth went well considering that it diverged from the plan. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Dr. Sylvia, Definitely been with you during our pregnancy has been amazing. You are incredible and we are forever thankful with you and all in the Ferguson team. This journey has come to an end but we will keep you in our hearts. Thank you. Love. God bless you.
To Louise, I was just thinking about you last night as I was breastfeeding Oli. She latches in the dark with her eyes closed, she does it so well and she can breastfeed in any position ( if I'm lying down and I pull my top down she would crawl to my breast). And I thought about how 7 months ago I was so worried I couldn't breastfeed because everyone made it sound sooo hard. You changed all of those negative perceptions into positive affirmations and in doing so, changed our lives for the better. In a way you taught me to trust my baby – even when she rejected the bottle. And for all of that and more, I'm so thankful to you.
Dear Dr Ferguson, Louise & All The Staff! We wanted to extend our sincerest gratitude and thanks for all your support during Tyler's delivery! In a time of uncertainty and confusion you all helped us feel safe & secure. Thank you for delivering both our babies!
When love gives life: forever!!! Our Gabriele was born on January 30th at 12:14 pm! Thanks to all wonderful FWH team and all RiCi hospital team for the lovely support to us!! Say thank you is not enough to doctor Ferguson and doula Mindy!!!!
To all of the fabulous team at Ferguson's RICI Clinic, Four weeks ago today you helped us to bring our son, Rory, into the world and we could not have wished for a better experience. From Louise's antenatal classes back in December we quickly sensed that FWH was the place for us as we knew that you would all totally be on our wavelength and that we wouldn’t have to advocate too hard for the birth experience we wanted as we were already so much aligned. During the labour, delivery and blissful 3 nights postpartum we spent cocooned with you, we could not have felt more cared for and supported by everybody who looked after us. I’m still successfully breastfeeding too thanks to all of the advice – the follow up session with Louise was invaluable on a practical and emotional level. God bless you all and best wishes.
Cher docteur Dai, cher personnel de l'équipe Ferguson, Nous tenons à vous exprimer notre profonde gratitude pour tout ce temps et l'énergie que vous nous avez consacré durant notre séjour à l'hôpital. Par votre tact et votre gentillesse, vous nous avez permis de vivre sereinement cet événement bouleversant qu'est un accouchement. Nous n'oublierons jamais la gentillesse et le professionnalisme dont vous avez fait preuve tout au long de notre séjour parmi nous. Nous vous remercions du fond du cœur !
To the nurses and midwives of Ferguson and RiCi Hospital, Thank you for the help and support getting us through this monumental event in our lives. We will never forget the experience we had here.
Dear Dr Zou, Thank you so much for your gentle professionalism that has brought us immense comfort and ease of mind throughout our pregnancy. You and the entire FWH team have been essential in making our 39 weeks journey，an enjoyable and delightful experience. Our labor was not an easy one but you and your amazing team were instrumental in making it more bearable. When Emily was born, and you placed her on me, that was the happiest moment of my life. Our family thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Dear Dr. Lu-Ferguson, Louise, Tara and the FWH Team: Thank you very very much for your care and support throughout this amazing journey. It has been nothing but happiness and excitement whilst awaiting the arrival of our little angel. I felt calm and confident even when ending the pain and hard work of labour or facing the challenges of breastfeeding, knowing that you would be there to help me through. You are truly the best! This whole experience wouldn’t be as near as wonderful without you! Thank you!
Dear Dr. Zou, Thank you so much for taking care of me during the last stage of my pregnancy and finally bringing our little daughter Emily to this world safe and sound. We are also grateful to the whole FWH team for looking after us during our hospital stay and giving us the strength and confidence to start our new life as a family.
Dr. Ferguson, Louise and Mindy, Thank you for your incredible help welcoming baby Angus into our lives. Happy Chinese New Year!!!
Dear Dr Ferguson, We wanted to express our sincerest gratitude for helping us to bring in our little Maia into the world, you and your team are nothing short of amazing, helping us every step of the way. I am sure that without your help we wouldn’t have had anywhere near as smooth of a delivery as we had. You will forever have a place in our hearts!
Dear Dr. Zou: Thank you for your hard work and care that lasted all throughout both pregnancies. I will always be grateful for your patience and professionalism during so many days and nights. In addition, I also will be grateful for helping me overcome many difficulties, appeasing my anxieties and making decisive decisions during the process of delivery. I have felt at ease as long as I heard your gentle voice! You are the lucky angel for me and my babies. Thank you!
Dear Dr. Jennifer, Thank you so much for having put us on parenting track in the best possible manner: healthy babies and mummy.
Dear Mindy, I will never forget the moment you arrived in the delivery room, looked into my eyes and gave me the strength and courage to push and give birth. Thank you for your wonderful job even during your own b day!
Dear Dr. Lu-Ferguson, Mindy & team, Thank you all so much for your care and support these past few months! We feel so completely blessed to welcome our sweet healthy boy into our little family! We couldn't have done it without you! THANK YOU!!
Dear Dr. Ferguson, If we delivered our baby anywhere else, we almost certainly would have needed to do a C-section. Because you’re a magician, we naturally delivered a beautiful baby girl, Firenza. The world needs more inspiring women like you! Next time, my husband will try not to yell. I’m not going to make my promises. Happy New Year to you and your family!
Dear Dr. Ferguson, Thank you for taking so good care of us! We couldn’t have imagined a better birth experience. You and your team are truly amazing.
Dear Dr. Ferguson, My baby is 9 months. Thank you for giving us your care during my pregnancy. We feel lucky to meet you, a superb-skilled and kind OB physician. At the beginning of my pregnancy, you helped to allay my worries and anxieties. You are so professional and always think about patients that ensured us the smooth delivery. I had difficulties in breastfeeding, and it was you and your team who helped me out. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I have recommended you and your team to my friends, because I believe that they will have a positive experience like me! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Dear Dr. Ferguson, On behalf of Vera, our wonderful daughter, we would like to whole heartedly thank you and the Ferguson Team (Dr. Dai, Dr. Zou, Tara, Louise and the nursing team). On this journey full of uncertainty, anxiety, and never-ending questions, you and your team have made it all go away. In return, we have been blessed with our wonderful miracle.
Dear Dr. Dai, We feel very lucky to have been recommended to you for the birth of our first child. We could not imagine going through the process without a doctor like you. From the bottom of our hearts we wish to thank you and the rest of the Ferguson team for your guidance and thoughtful care!
To Dr. Ferguson & her team, We would like to thank you for the excellent care we received during our stay. You’re helped us so much in our journey to parenthood. We will always be grateful for the support and kindness you’ve all shown.
Dear team: We are coming from far away to give birth to our lovely son, but you all made it felt like we were at home. We don’t have enough words to express how thankful we are with all your kindness and great hospitality. Me, my wife and our son always felt welcoming and cared, even in our “prime time” you managed to bring the best of all these and it was that extra push that allowed us to enjoyed a greatest moment in our lives. Thank you!
Dear Louise, We wanted to say a special ‘thank you’ for your support, guidance & advice following the birth of our daughter. Your calm reassurances (and good sense of humour) was just what we needed when we were stressed to our limit. We are very grateful for the kindness and care you showed all of us. Heartfelt thanks from your fellow Aussies.
Dear Dr. Dai, Thank you so much for all the help and support during the deliveries of both of our sons. You have been so kind and helpful and we couldn’t have hoped for a better delivery experience. We really hope to see you again in the future!
Dear Dr. Ferguson, Louise and FWH Team: Thank you for the amazing care you all have provided our entire family. It is no wonder that the Ferguson name is so widely known and so highly recommended among Shanghai mamas. You all are truly the best of the best! NOT even just in Shanghai, but in the world! We are and will be enterally grateful for everything you have done for the safe and smooth delivery of both Nicolas and Mia. We have had such an incredible journey with your support and even continue to feel the ongoing care offered by your team. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. We hope that this is not goodbye and that our paths may cross again!
Dear Dr. Zou, We wanted to thank you for the incredible care you gave during the whole pregnancy and birth. Words cannot describe how much it moved us when you delivered Chloe into our arms. At any time, we felt in very good hands – a truly remarkable job. From the bottom of our heart, a sincere thank you.
Dear Dr. Dai, Thank you so much for the support and kindness you gave us and Hana over the past year. We will always cherish our time with you!
Dear Dr. Dai, Thank you for playing a vital role in the most amazing experience of our lives. Hayden’s birth has given us so much joy! Couldn’t have done without your support.
Dear Dr. Dai, Thank you for your support during planning delivery of our C-section which happened to be a good experience and even had contractions enjoyed. Big thanks for rushing for emergency. Wishing you all the best!
Dear Dr. Ferguson, The words don’t exist to appropriately thank you for all you have done for us. From the first time we met you and the team on August 2017, you were so calming, reassuring and informative. ***, and when we became pregnant, we were eternally grateful ***. Throughout our miracle pregnancy, you were always so consistent in treating any possible complications while allaying my anxieties. Finally, your support during our final month when Kai was measuring slightly small was unfailing, and our birth was everything we could have dreamed. Thank you so very, very, very much!
Dear Doctor Ferguson, We are very glad for all your care during pregnancy and happy that Pedro could come to this world through your hands! Thank you very much!
Dear Dr Dai, I can't thank you enough for making the birth of our baby girl Lana, the most beautiful experience. God bless you! You'll stay in our hearts forever!
Dear Louise, Tara and all the nurses, midwives, doulas and consultants at Ferguson’s and American Sino, Thank you so much for all the help and support you gave our family during the birth of our daughter. The support we got at the hospital, particularly with breastfeeding was really helpful and being able to ask questions through the WeChat, at the counter and during lactation consultancy sessions is so great. It’s particularly good to know that your advice is evidence- based so I can trust your recommendations without also doing a crazy amount of research of my own and I’ve really appreciated all the advice and help you’ve given to me. The classes were all really helpful for giving us confidence in how best to look after Isabella and to fully inform us regarding our pain ‘management’ options! Finally, the nurses at Huashan Rd were always so friendly and thoughtful during prechecks and non-stress tests (including suggesting music for waking up a sleeping baby!) Everyone has played such an important role in the birth of our little girl so much smoother and less stressful than it could have been so -thank you!
Dear Dr. Zou, Thank you so much for everything you did throughout my pregnancy and the birth of Isabella. Despite my reams of questions, you were always patient with me, giving me through answers and taking the time to put my mind at rest. This helped to make the whole process of having a baby in a foreign country so much easier and less stressful. I can’t emphasis enough how helpful and found your kind and reasoning manner. Thank you also for everything you did during Isabella’s birth. While I didn’t go with the waterbirth I’d planned for in the end, it was incredibly reasoning to know you were in charge of my birth and I ended up having a wonderful experience (epidurals really are quite magical once they’re in!) Tom and I both feel incredibly lucky to have had our baby with FWH and, most importantly, to have had you as our doctor. Again, thank you so much.
Special Thanks to Dr. Ferguson & Dr. Zou for the most perfect care and communication we could dream of. Tara & Louise for their amazing job preparing us to delivery, childcare and breastfeeding and fun. We came to the hospital for delivery as we were going to a weekend out of town and we came out with the most valuable memories! Amy, for being so soft-handed with injections and helping me to overcome my needle-phobia. All FWH Team for the amazing care and emotional support through the entire fertility journey. Thanks for not telling me ‘just relax’, it was so much more relaxing.
