Based on my experience of visiting Shanghai over the last 12 years here are my 10 tips on finding the good places to go and which ones to avoid It sounds simple and it really is.
Way back beforeeven a licensed "lactogogue" such as Wang Xiaohong couldn't make a living just on massaging the clogged milk ducts of new nursing mothers. That, however, was before the boom in postpartum maternity and child care, a result of the fact that more Chinese mothers are having fewer children and thus devoting more time and attention to those children.
