An Expat Talks about What is Was Like Having a Baby in Jakarta, Indonesia

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

Jakarta

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

1 month ago

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 wife gave birth to a baby girl in Indonesia one month ago. Before we moved here i was recommended to getting a private health insurance that will cover us anywhere on Earth (except for USA) from Pacific Prime Insurance Brokers (http://www.pacificprime.com/countries/indonesia). Lucky for us it worked well. we were directed to a good doctor and then to a good hospital for the delivery. So, i am writing to suggest others to find the right health insurance plan before they move.

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

I called the broker i worked with at Pacific Prime and i was given a list and from this list we chose one that we felt comfortable with.

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

Not really, i would be more relaxed.

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

Find the right doctor, eat well, learn to breath for the delivery and get an insurance plan and make sure it covers maternity etc.
