  • The midwife meets you and accepts your documents: passport, insurance policy, exchange card and birth certificate. She asks you about the state of health and examines: feels the uterus through the stomach, assesses contractions, listens to the child’s heartbeat, measures pressure, checks whether there are any swelling on the legs.
  • After inspection, you will be offered to change into a sterile cotton shirt, and things will be returned to relatives or left in the storage room.
    After you change your clothes, the midwife will take your temperature, examine your throat. If everything is in order, you will be able to give birth in a department for healthy women (1st obstetric department).
    Then you will be weighed, the growth and the external dimensions of the pelvis will be measured with a special device – a tazomer. After that, the midwife will shave your hair under your arms and pubic hair. And in the maternity hospital you will be asked to wash the cosmetics off your face, mow the nails on your hands and remove the lacquer from them – during childbirth, the condition of the future mother can be measured by the color of the nails, lips and sclera.
  • The final procedure is an enema. Outlets from the vagina and rectum are located nearby, and during delivery, when the baby’s head through the vagina puts pressure on the rectum, its contents can infect the newborn with an infection. After the “cleansing” you will take a shower, put on a shirt and a bathrobe, and you will be taken to the rodblock.

In maternity hospitals that were built a long time ago, there is a prenatal ward in the maternity unit, where there are several laboring women with contractions, and they give birth to a childbirth. And in maternity hospitals, built recently, each woman is in a separate box for all births.

In the prenatal ward, the doctor talks to you, gets acquainted with your exchange card, finds out how the pregnancy proceeded. Then he performs an external examination to find out the position of the child and the strength of contractions, listens to the baby’s heartbeat.

The doctor conducts and vaginal examination, assesses the condition of the cervix and the degree of its disclosure; checks if the fetal bladder is intact.

To monitor the well-being of the baby, you will have a heart monitor connected, which will record your contractions and the child’s heartbeat for 30 minutes. If your doctor thinks fit, he may prescribe medications that will reduce pain, speed up cervical dilatation, or increase labor activity.

During contractions, the midwife will monitor your condition: measure pressure, take a pulse, remind you that it’s time to go to the toilet (a full bladder weakens contractions). She will observe how the contractions take place, and every hour to listen to the future heartbeat of the future baby – independently or with the help of a heart monitor. If any difficulties arise, she will invite a doctor.

In addition, the midwife will teach you how to breathe properly during contractions and relax during breaks. And finally, you will have the desire to push – this means that your baby is about to be born.

The midwife will remind you once again how to do it right, and you will start taking delivery.

Do not take anything extra: just grab the documents (exchange card, passport, insurance policy and birth certificate), mobile with a charger and washable slippers. All the rest relatives will be able to pass on to you after birth. Leave the decorations at home – in the hospital they will be asked to remove and leave for storage
