An Expat Talks about What is Was Like Having a Baby in Kolonia, Micronesia

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

Kolonia

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

1992

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...

At the State hospital, I had a local doctor attending. I refused all pain relief. I stayed one day only. It was very good. I was nearly 43 years old and a first-time mother so the staff was nervous.

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

My regular doctor was not answering his phone, so the doctor on call came.

If you were to have another child in this country, would you do anything differently in terms of preparation and/or the delivery?

I would not do anything differently. It went well.

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

I recommend (if you are a first-timer) you read all you can about what the stages of a birth are, what you should be feeling at each stage of delivery, so you will feel safe and not nervous.
