What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Athens

How recently did you give birth in the country that you are reporting on?

2yr and 8yr ago

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...

Both babies born at home.Very positive experiences. Just breathing and working with the labour, hot water compressors, loving midwives made my births wonderful.Giving birth in your own enviorment makes all the difference.

How did you choose your doctor, midwife or other type of medical professional?

Through Birthvoice, Le L.Legue,

If you were to have another child in this country, would you do anything differently in terms of preparation and/or the delivery?

No everything was wonderful.

If a friend of yours living in the same country were expecting, what advice would you give her?

If you want a hospital natural birth, get good Dr's names from me,LLL or Birth Voice, if you do no want the hospital experience, but still feeling safer to be close to a medical model, go to the Birth center, again we can advise you to a good midwife, if you want a home birth, there are midwives with a good repitation for exellant home births.If you want the 5 star,'hotel', with a painless, quick c/s, go to any Dr in a private Hosp.
