An Expat Talks about What is Was Like Having a Baby in Boca Raton,

Submitted by brazilusa

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

Boca Raton

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

in 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...

I went to the hospital after my water broke. I checked in at 3:40 AM. The staff was very friendly but I did not have much saying in anything. They gave me pitocin without even asking me and when I asked for the epidural they said that I needed to hydrated first. it turned out that I did not get one and the baby was born at 5:27Am through vaginal delivery. I was sent home 2 days later. They did not encourage brestfeeding at all, for no particular reason as the baby was normal and I was fine, too. They gave me a bag with formula and other treats from Nestle and sent me home. The experience was good. My baby is healthy. I missed the warmth of my Brazilian culture though.
