Midwife, Birthing Centers, and Doctors in Lima

Postby sprinterlife » Wed May 16, 2012 11:06 am

Greetings,

I am 4 months pregnant and will be giving birth in Lima. I would like to find a great midwife to attend my birth at a birthing center or possibly in a clinic, especially since I have heard that the C-section rate is at a whopping 80% in Peru. I'm hoping that a midwife assisted birth will prevent unnecessary intervention.

Has anyone had any experience giving birth in Lima? Can you recommend a midwife, a birthing center, or even a trusted doctor who will respect my desire to not have a C-section unless it is truly a medical emergency?

Thank you so much!!

Stevie

I had a friend who delivered with them and has nothing but great things to say about them.
