What’s to expect next?
Today, I am going to give you a great idea of how the pre-natal and delivery happens so that you can have a secure feeling of what to expect.
I will never forget my surprise when first being introduced to the Brazilian way of having a baby.
Though people were super happy, helpful and surprised whenever they saw that my wife was pregnant, it just seemed that it was looked at more as a condition that could only be treated by a doctor.
Don’t get me wrong, I know that the right doctor will be competent and helpful, it was just a shock to see people’s views towards the pregnancy (both good and bad).
Back where my wife comes from (Denmark), pregnant women are treated much differently both in and out of a hospital.
For the first part, you get taken care of by midwifes the whole way through and rarely see the doctor – if at all.
And secondly, the midwives are focused on keeping things as natural as possible. Whereas in Brazil, it’s views as needing to be done clinically.
