I did all the paperwork on my end, and the best part was when they required me to get a certificate of sorts from Canada saying I hadn’t other children equivalent to the Chinese one (which doesn’t exist) for the birth permit, running around the gov’t offices across from global center randomly poking in until someone helped me, and called basically all the gov’t phone numbers they had in a list to eventually get the response of ‘oh ok yeh you don’t need that now’. It was all great fun..the bedside support post-birth is pretty exhausting, but we were lucky enough to get a private room and I had a nice lil fold-out bed to sleep on for the week, many people were in a big group room the whole time (we were there for the arrival night.) and it seems horrendous.
