Pregnacy

Post Posted: Sat Oct 28, 2006 11:00 pm

Hi,
I am pregnant of my second child due on April next year. I had my first child in France and find it really different here so far! I live in Rotterdam and may choose to have the baby in Sint Franciscus Gasthuis. Do anyone of you have an idea on this hospital? Any other good hospital around? Thanks in advance!
Mel

why do you expect going to a hospital? in the netherlands custom is to deliver at home. make sure you have the choice if you want to go to a hospital.

Hello,
I expect going to the hospital because my husband & I are not ready for a "delivery at home". We discuss with our mid-wife who told us we can go to Sint Franciscus Gasthuis without any problem...

good luck!

that's not quite right birgit- everybody can deliver in the hospital- if you don't have any complications you have pay a certain amount. (=poliklinische bevalling)
if there are any complications your health insurance pays for everything.
(= medische indicatie)

anyway...good luck to you mel! i think you've probably noticed that the dutch view on pregnancy and birth is a lot different from the french one! Smile happy pregnancy!
