An Expat Talks about What is Was Like Having a Baby in Sao Paulo, Brazil

Submitted by kawaiianigel

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

Sao Paulo

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

2 years 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...

I had my baby at Pro Matre cause Albert Einstein was full, but I dont regret it. We dont use any kind of health insurance, so we payed ir from our pockets. I spent 6 days there, 2 on ICU. And my daughter 12 days, all of them on neo ICU. I had all the support I need, even psychological care. The staff is great, and gives a lot of help with whatever we need.

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

By an indication! And thanks to her I'm here tell about it. She knew exactly when I needed a C section, and did it at the right time. Saving me and my baby!

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

No.

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

Get the best health insurance you can, cause having a baby in Brazil is really expensive, especially if your pregnancy is considered risky.
