Reviews and stories of friends, and even more friends … all this is important, but only having given birth for the first time, I understood my miscalculations and mistakes.
On the one hand, in order not to intimidate, I will immediately make a reservation that everything was fine for me, I would say, for four. For myself, I decided that I would give birth for free, the money I saved would be better spent on toys and things for the child, and all the more terrifying there is no complication in the course of pregnancy.
One wonderful winter day, 5 days before the New Year, I applied to the emergency department of the maternity ward with contractions. After examining, I was taken to the ward, then the doctors did not spoil me with frequent visits.
After the moment X came, at which the doctors didn’t act correctly, I didn’t remember a single name from the medical staff, which I didn’t regret. When I asked why they got scissors, the doctors said they didn’t why … As it turned out, they lied, for me it was the most negative moment of the whole story. I did not like exactly a lie from their side.
Perhaps the first question that needs to be addressed in a few months. A few kilometers to go, maybe even to a neighboring city or to a district one, assigned to the place of residence. Both options can be considered.
Who wants to give birth in the hospital with old equipment and falling plaster, when there is an opportunity to give birth to the same rights in another hospital, the best in terms of conditions.
In the second case, there is at least a small, but the probability of getting into a traffic jam or an accident, to get unplanned complications. Everyone is free to choose here. I decided to give birth closer to home, for me this question was not in principle.
The choice of a doctor for me, as well as the choice of a maternity hospital, was not in the first place. I decided to confide in who will be on that day. On the second birth, I will give this moment a special meaning. Not everyone wants to give birth to a 65-year-old man who looks 75 and feels the same way. Not everyone can endure a rough midwife, from which he has been smoking.
Reviews on the Internet, stories of friends
To my surprise, I read the reviews about the maternity hospital only on arrival home, perhaps, and for the better, they would obviously be too impressionable. I think, as with any hospital, there are reviews with a rating of zero and 5.
Do not forget that the reviews depend not only on the experience of the doctor, but also on the state of the pregnancy and the person writing the review.
Conclusions after the first birth
– do not let things take their course, carefully study the staff and conditions of the hospital;
– to study reviews on the Internet, but not to treat them as paramount;
– give birth for free;
– give birth closer to home.
When I wrote my story, I didn’t get out of my head one phrase: Thoughts are material. If a person initially set himself up against some kind of maternity hospital, but for some reason I had to give birth there, most likely the reviews will be negative.
I wish all those who read pregnant girls easy childbirth and easy attitude to preparation.
