Is It Okay To Consult A Pregnancy At An Indonesian Hospital To Prepare For Childbirth?
Hello, I’m an Indonesian living in LN. Pregnancy is now 12 weeks and plans to return to Indonesia for c section delivery. Are hospitals and doctors in Indonesia willing to accept patients who can be consulted at the age of 7-8 months? And if not at what age later to start choosing obstetricians and hospital bookings?
Hello VitaAmbar, Thank you for the question.
Regular pregnancy examinations are needed to monitor the growth and development of the fetus and the health of pregnant women so that the delivery process, either normally or Caesarean section can run properly. You may return to Indonesia and then continue your pregnancy check up as you approach delivery, no doctor will refuse you with a note that you have brought the results of the pregnancy test so far and a letter of introduction from your obstetrician beforehand so that doctors in Indonesia know what the assessment has been done and the condition of your pregnancy to date. This information aims to tell the doctor what preparations should be made when labor occurs. There is no age limit for choosing a doctor in Indonesia, but you should avoid consulting a doctor in Indonesia too close to the time of delivery. It is intended that even the doctor can find out the condition of pregnancy and your fetus so far. If you must return to Indonesia by plane, the recommended travel time is when you reach the second trimester (week 14 to 28). Avoid traveling by plane when approaching childbirth. Make sure you consult your obstetrician first before traveling on the plane if it takes a long time. You can start selecting obstetricians as soon as you arrive in Indonesia. You can use the "find a doctor" or "find a hospital" feature on this HealthReplies.com page to help you.
Hopefully this information helps you.
