Buenos Aires, Argentina
What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
How recently did you give birth in the country that you are reporting on?
I'm currently pregnant
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...
I have private insurance with Medicus, one of the top insurance companies here. I had to take it two months prior to getting pregnant to be fully covered. We are paying 168 US or 535 pesos per month.
I was recommended to a obstetrician who specializes in C-sections. I've had only one visit with him, but he made sure to give me his cell phone. I've already had to use it when I had some slight issues. I was able to reach him on a Sunday night, and after a phone consultation, he sent me to the local "sanitario" which admitted me immediately for an ultrasound. I received excellent care and was amazed to be able to get not only my doctor, but actually to have him call and prep the doctor on staff at the sanitario.
