An Expat Talks about What is Was Like Having a Baby in David, Panama

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

David

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

August 2007

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...

My son's wife delivered a baby by C-Section at Mae Lewis Hospital in David. There were 4 doctors in the OR during the procedure. She stayed in a private room for 3 days. The total cost was $2500.00 including doctors, nurses and hospital. The care was top notch. In Oregon where we lived the cost would have been $25,000.00
