Having a Baby in Poznan, Poland

Having-a-Baby-In-Poznan

I had my baby in Polna hospital Poznan - this is a maternity hospital. I am Irish living in Poznan and I spent all my pregnancy in Poznan and delivered in this hospital. My gynacologist spoke english and was from a practice called Nereida - my doctors name was Krzysztof Hadas - As recommended by my doctor I paid to have my own midwife areound 80euro I was able to meet with her before the birth, look at the ward e.t.c and she was there for labour. Polna is a university hospital with many english students so language was not an issue with the staff, my midwife did not speak english. I found the facilities excellent modern intimate single labour rooms with toilet and shower, after the birth I was in a room with one other women, the food was basic but wholesome and the care was excellent. I was in hospital 3 days after the birth. I would advise for first babies some prenatal classes for breast feeding prep e.t.c with an english speaker, its available if you look. I felt very secure and was really made feel at ease and very well cared for. A very positive experience. Epidural is not widely used in this hospital but can be ordered in advance. I found the pain medication on offer very adequate.
