Having a Baby in St. John's. Newfoundland., Canada

I had to have a C-sect, as my little one didn't want to turn. I went to the only hospital in town, Health Sciences. The Maternity ward has it's own 'emergency' room, so you can get help straight away if you need it, which is a great relief to know. For a town of only 200,000, it's a giant step ahead of other places! The nurses were wonderful, the facilities brilliant! My OB is the most wonderful, caring & beautiful man! Dr Bartellis! I was in hospital for 4 nights. I had an Epidural & Spinal Block. No problems!
