Having a Baby in Amman, Jordan

Having-a-Baby-In-Amman

I had my fifth VBAC birth at the Farah Hospital. I had gestational diabetes, so I saw the nutritionist at the hospital early in my pregnancy. She gave me a week of menus to follow. I eventually figured out principles for eating and was able to keep my blood sugar at the right levels through just diet for a while. When it became necessary for more supervision, I was referred to an endocrinologist who was wonderful.

I was not induced, but would have been if the enema (yuck) had not been enough to start contractions. I was very concerned the baby was going to be too large and after talking with my doctor, he agreed to try a very gentle way of starting labor. It worked.

I had an epidural when I was ready for it, not before. The anesthesiologist had a great bedside manner. I was able to bring an MP3 player so I could listen to my music during labor. There was also a TV in the labor room if I had wanted to watch it. My husband stayed with me the entire time but had to wear a paper gown, hat and booties. There was a "family room" right next to the labor and delivery room where he went to have a sandwich which the staff ordered for him when labor stretched on through a meal time.

My birth experience was very good. I was in the hospital two nights. The food was excellent. The nursing staff were attentive but not overly so and spoke English. I was allowed to keep the baby with me as much as I wanted, even over night. They even brought in a bed for my husband to stay with us.

Having a Baby in Amman, Jordan

My pregnancy and childbirth experience in Jordan were phenomenal. I had an excellent doctor who spoke perfect English and dealt with many expats. I had an ultrasound during each monthly prenatal visit and my doctor took time to answer all of my questions.

The hospital I gave birth in was also excellent - I had a very large (larger than my apartment) private suite with excellent nursing care. I had a c-section and was in the hospital for two nights with no complications.
