Describe your experience giving birth there. What type of facility did you go to? What (if any) type of pain management did you use? How long did you stay in the hospital? Was it a positive experience? Etc...
We had our baby in a Sanatorio in Buenos Aires. It was a wonderfull experience. I chose a healthcare team that really made me feel cared for. I felt I was in good hands since the moment we interviewed the obstetrician. When we arrived to the sanatorio the anesthesiologist was waiting for me. I got the epidural right away. The parteras where really nice and tried to comfort me.
How did you choose your doctor, midwife or other type of medical professional?
I contacted a billingual doula who helped me choose the right kind of Dr. She explaied what the differences are here. What procedures are routine and which ones can be avoided. The doula acompanied us for the first weeks helping out in the adaptation process.
If you were to have another child in this country, would you do anything differently in terms of preparation and/or the delivery?
I would choose the same medical team.
If a friend of yours living in the same country were expecting, what advice would you give her?
Contact Maria our doula/ lactation consultant!!!
