An Expat Talks about What is Was Like Having a Baby in
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?
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.
