It was clean enough, better equipped, nice looking than many european clinics. It was very clean but if you need more they would provide. It was an operation and it was almost perfect. Only problem is to get the facture. It takes at least a week. The doctor was very comforting and gentile and look very experienced. The operation was epidural anesthezi. No worries to have a baby there and the clinic by the way called clinic Sehrazad. I can give more detail if requested.
Well, all I can say is horrible. No pain managment at all, filthy conditions...had to take my own bedding with me. You have to wait with other women in a waiting area to be processed. Lots of women screaming in pain while waiting. Then you are taken to a room full of other women giving birth. They can see you and you them. You have nurses come and hold you down by your shoulders and legs to stop you moving and then a doctors pushes down on your stomach and rolls his arms along you stomach to push the baby out. Then, you are transfered onto a bed with blood all over it from the women who was there before you then you are put into a room with blood soaked bedding, coachroaches as big as houses, no water to wash your baby or yourself as they don't do it and even if you go private. If there is a problem with the birth you are sent back to the public hospital as cannot deal with emergencys.
