Having a Baby in Piet Retief, South Africa

I needed a c-section because we knew my daughter was in the breech position. The doctor and facilities were great. I stayed for five days in hospital. At the time they did not have an ultrasound machine. It cost less to have a c-section than for my husband and son to stay in their hotel!

Having a Baby in Johannesburg, South Africa

My first baby was born at home in the Netherlands without painkillers and without any complications.

Because of this experience I was very much in favour of a natural birth without medical intevention if possible. Since it is custom to have a hospitial delivery with a gynacologist I initially also choose that route. However after a pre hospital delivery tour I got so shocked of the staggering 90 % cs rates that a ran away from the gynacologist and found a fanatsic midwife.

My son was born with a water birth at 10 o'clock waterbirth in the morning and I checked myself the same day out of the hospital. The midwife was fabulous but I was not too impressed with the hospital service.
