Hi all, was really hoping I could get some tips from mothers who've given birth in HCMC as I'm not finding a great deal of information out there. I visited some hospitals in HCMC, whilethey look seems nice, I hear Cesarean rates are high and that a lot of the nurses don't speak English. The books I'm reading at the moment probably don't help as I'm pursuing the most comfortable and natural birth possible, preferably without C-section or drugs. I just worry that I'll be put under pressure.
I've also heard about an alternative place to give birth, something like a house you book a room in, comfortable with doctor at hand. Has anyone heard about this?
It's just impossible to find anything on the internet! Would appreciate any advice/shared experiences.

Hi Bluerose and welcome to the forum!

I live in Hanoi, so I'm probably not the best one to ask, but I did find an article that you might find of interest - here's the link: http://ezinearticles.com/?Locating-a-Good-Hospital-in-Ho-Chi-Min-City,-Vietnam&id=4531594. They mention Columbia Asia Medical Center - I don't have any direct experience, but I do know that their reputation in Malaysia is quite good. The parent company is actually based out of the US, and they seem to want an international standard of quality in all their hospitals, so it might be worth checking them out.

I hope that helps!
