An Expat Talks about What is Was Like Having a Baby in Buenos Aires, Argentina

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

Buenos Aires

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.

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

By recommendation.

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

Make sure you get your private insurance as soon as possible. I would recommend purchasing the best coverage you can afford so that you have full coverage, as well as no deductibles or copays. Medicus and OSDE are two excellent choices.

Medicus and OSDE are good medical insurance companies but they do not accept anyone with preexisting conditions. If you have a preexisting condition of any kind, there seem to be no exceptions, they will not cover you. Try a private hospital insurance plan instead.
