Having a Baby in Islamabad, Pakistan

Having-a-Baby-In-Islamabad

I had our two children in Pakistan, but at different times. The first time I was here on a diplomatic posting, and the second I was not workig at all, but was here as a dependents of my husband, who was working. We never anticipated number 2 being born in Islamabad, but it worked out that way. I went to the Shifa International Hospital, the main one and probably the best equipped. However, I saw a private ob/gyn for the first 7 months with our first before going to the hospital doctor. With our second, I was 35 weeks when we arrived, so had most of the care at home before arriving back in Pakistan. I did not use any pain management, although it was offered and easily obtained. I had a positive experience. Natural childbirth with both, and short labours. I realise I am lucky in that sense. I stayed in hospital for 24 hours after our first was born. I stayed for about 8 hours after our second. My husband was allowed to be present for both, and for our first my mother was also there.
