An Expat Talks about What is Was Like Having a Baby in
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
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?
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 choose to go to a private hospital called Kingdom Hospital since it was the neighbour of our compound, Kingdom City compound. I had a wonderful doctor which I would higly recommend, her name is Dr. Wad Sarawan. When it was time to deliver, she came to the hospital in the middle of the night and eveything went extremly smooth. The only pain management I took was the nitroxygen, it was enough for me. I came in to the hospital at 22.15 and the baby came 04.35 inte morning and after that I stayed one night in the hospital and went home the day after. My delivery was a very positive experience.
