Diagnosis: Childbirth

Good afternoon! I gave birth in Valencia 3 months ago, quiron clinic. in the maternity hospital they give all consumables (such as pads, etc.), a hospital shirt, with strings on the back, but on the second day, I put on my own (a shirt for breastfeeding and a dressing gown). with an unplanned cesarean lay only 3 days. I gave birth for a fee and suddenly, so I didn’t take any mugs and spoons, I had enough food on the menu, and I drank from a plastic bottle, it’s so convenient for me. slippers, clothes for discharge are needed, no underpants are disposable, I put on ordinary ones, no problems. in the hospital, a baby was vaccinated against hepatitis B. I heard that in state clinics they give all the clothes to the child and another bag for discharge, this was not the case in this clinic, on the second or third day they asked me for clothes for the child and dressed in ours. all diapers, etc. are provided, but as well as any little thing is included in the bill. take personal hygiene items, toothbrush and paste. shampoo, it is unlikely that there will be a good shampoo, even if there is, cosmetics, well, I think everything except soap. in general, the ward was similar to a hotel room, except for the bed))), respectively, towels, etc., you don’t need to take them. and it’s better to clarify with them about clothes, I look, it’s different everywhere. locals told me that they give out EVERYTHING, but it’s free if you give birth free, not paid. such a paradox))) here they brought food according to the menu for two, they were supposed to have someone always in the ward with me. the husband was the first night, but a very uncomfortable sofa for him, so then I sent him to spend the night at home. they bring breakfast in the morning, and were surprised that I am alone))) the food is simply excellent. I didn’t want anything extra, because there were enough fruits and I didn’t have time for that. Yes, I didn’t have enough water. but we were given a bunch of rare food for the baby for discharge so that we would not look for the first time.

Diagnosis: Childbirth

I gave birth in Spain. No anesthesia, free because I live here. They give birth here without the presence of a doctor, if the birth is normal. From the beginning to the end, one midwife leads the birth, and the husband is there. The conditions are excellent. There is only one ward, there is no such fool as to take you and your child on foot somewhere to the maternity hospital. It’s really hard to ask for an epidural. That is, you can ask, but if the anesthesiologist is lazy, he simply won’t come during the delivery.))) Normal deliveries are not a priority. But there is a bath right in the ward, a gas mask, which really helped me. The atmosphere is like home, the midwife acts like a mother. As far as I understand, they are taught this. That is, the goal is not only to remove the child, but also so that the mother does not have negative memories. The postpartum ward is also beautiful, shower, towels, and pads. The feeling that you are in a hotel. I’m generally afraid to give blood from my finger, I always thought about giving birth with tears. And everything went quite normally, without anesthesia. It hurts, of course, but when professional staff are around, it’s much easier.

I had an emergency caesarean, I didn’t feel anything, the conditions are good, only the food for the hospital is a little strange. An epidural is given to everyone, if you give birth with a flow in the hospital, you can refuse it. There is a shower and a toilet in the room.

I gave birth to my first child in Russia IN THE BEST Maternity Hospital AT THAT TIME. I paid EVERYTHING and everyone. The birth was terribly difficult. After the birth, the good doctor said – if such people survive, then they become morons ….. Thank God everything is in order. I decided on the second child after 12 years of persuading my husband. Born in Spain. In an ordinary hospital – conditions and attitude – like a queen. Girls, don’t think, go to Spain.

I gave birth in Spain, the organization of the trip was through a medical operator. Childbirth was supposed to be difficult, so I was afraid to give birth in the clinic of our country. Very satisfied, everything went well (everything at the highest level).

Childbirth in Spain

According to the WHO rankings, independent expert councils and the latest study by NEWSWEEK magazine, Spain’s healthcare system is recognized as one of the best and ranks third in the world. People come here for the diagnosis and treatment of severe pathologies, as well as for pregnancy and childbirth.

According to various sources, Spain has the lowest infant mortality rate (0.3% per 1,000 newborns), confirming the high medical care level. In Spanish clinics, all conditions have been created for the safest and most comfortable birth of a baby. Therefore, in recent years, childbirth in Spain has become a popular medical tourism destination for Ukrainians and residents of Central Asia.

Giving birth in Spain: advantages and disadvantages

The birth of a child in Spain is chosen not only by women from Eastern Europe and Central Asia but also from Western European countries, where medicine is traditionally strong.

Giving birth in Spain: advantages and disadvantagesThe main advantages of giving birth in Spain for foreigners are:

  1. Effective childbirth preparation programs.
  2. Attentiveness, and sincere friendliness of medical personnel to the needs of the woman in labor.
  3. Individual approach.
  4. Doctors rarely do a cesarean section – only for medical reasons.
  5. Low complication rate.
  6. The baby stays constantly with his mother, and there is the opportunity for relatives to visit them freely.
  7. Childbirth in Spain is a guaranteed acquisition of citizenship by a child under a simplified scheme after the age of majority.
  8. Affordable price for childbirth in Spain.
  9. Childbirth in Spain for foreigners can be free with insurance and registration.

An additional plus is the mild Mediterranean climate, which can improve a woman’s well-being in the last months of pregnancy and after the birth of a baby.

Perhaps the only disadvantage of giving birth in Spain for foreigners is the difficulty in communication if the mother and her relatives do not know Spanish. In this case, you need to find an interpreter in advance who will accompany the expectant mother for consultations with the doctor and childbirth.

Childbirth in Spain citizenship

Many foreign patients come to Spain for childbirth to obtain the child’s citizenship. Local law provides this possibility.

A child who was born here really has the right to citizenship. In Spain, there are 3 options for admission to citizenship:

  1. Automatic citizenship if one of the parents has a Spanish passport.
  2. If a residence permit or permanent residence legalizes the child’s parents, he can obtain citizenship in 1 year, subject to permanent residence in the country.
  3. If both parents are foreigners who do not have the status of a residence permit or permanent residence, the baby can obtain citizenship at 18 years old after a personal application.

At the birth of a child, a certificate is issued to him, which will need to be exchanged for a “Family Book”. This is an analog of the book of registration of acts of civil status. In Spain, this is an individual document of a person, in which information is entered about his birth, marriage and dissolution, the birth of children, and death.

If, in the future the option of obtaining Spanish citizenship by the child is considered, this document must be issued.

Important: It will not be possible for parents to obtain Spanish citizenship at the birth of a child, as local law does not provide for this.

Pregnancy management in Spain

Pregnancy management in SpainAccording to the opinions of women who have already become mothers in Spain, the ideal option is to spend the entire pregnancy in the country. Thus, the expectant mother will be able to choose a doctor, get to know him, pass all the prescribed tests, and have an ultrasound scan under his guidance. There will be no need to translate medical documents into Spanish.

Also, pregnancy in Spain can be carried out by a midwife. This is possible if the expectant mother monitors pregnancy in a state clinic. If additional examinations are needed, the midwife issues referrals.

According to patients, they do not prescribe many tests during pregnancy in Spain.

In the absence of complications, a woman visits a doctor or midwife once a month and undergoes an ultrasound scan.

When to arrive for childbirth in Spain for foreigners

However, there are situations when a woman does not have the opportunity to live permanently in Spain throughout her pregnancy.

For such cases, experts have developed recommendations:

  1. Come to Spain for a consultation with a doctor, take tests at 2 and 5 months, fly at 7-8, and stay until the birth.
  2. It is to come for 5-6 months, to be examined, and not to leave anymore.
  3. Arrive in Spain at 5-6 months for examination, go home and return 2-3 weeks before the birth.

Important: not all airlines take on board women at the 8th month of pregnancy for fear of premature birth. An exception may be written consent from the doctor. Therefore, those who plan to fly in the last weeks should remember this or choose ground transport for travel.

How is childbirth in Spain for foreigners

In Spain, as in many European countries, specialized maternity hospitals are not provided. Childbirth takes place in the maternity wards of private and public hospitals.

 

How is childbirth in Spanish clinicsHow is childbirth in Spanish clinics?

The woman is offered to choose the position in which she is comfortable to give birth.

The delivery rooms are equipped with everything necessary for childbirth: beds with an adjustable back, a rope for vertical childbirth, a jacuzzi and fitballs to relieve pain during contractions.

In Spain, epidural anesthesia is widely used during childbirth. The doctor uses a small dose to anesthetize the lower body, which is absolutely safe for the baby and the mother. For cesarean section, epidural anesthesia is also used predominantly; general anesthesia is extremely rare.

During childbirth in Spain, foreigners are allowed the presence of a person close to the woman. Also, for a fee, accommodation is available for an accompanying person with mom and baby.

 

After birth

After birth, the baby is surrounded by the care and attention of the medical staff. According to reviews of childbirth in Spain, midwives and doctors come on demand. A neonatologist examines a child.

Mom is given advice on breastfeeding, swaddling and navel care. After a natural birth, a mother with a newborn is discharged for 2-3 days, after a cesarean section – a week later.

Spanish doctors agree in one opinion: do not immediately rush to return to your homeland, they recommend staying for a month. During this time, the mother will have access to the help of a pediatrician. The mild Mediterranean climate helps to get stronger. In addition, there will be time to issue documents for the child at the Consulate.

How much does childbirth cost in Spain?

Childbirth in Spain: costThe average price for a natural birth in Spain is $2500-5000, and for a cesarean section, it is $7000-10000. The cost of childbirth in Spain may vary depending on the chosen city and clinic, the use of anesthesia, additional days spent in the hospital, the accommodation of the attendant, as well as the type of room. Translation services are paid separately.

In private hospitals, the cost is higher due to the increased level of comfort. For example, food for a woman in labor is prepared in a restaurant, and the ward resembles a room in a prestigious hotel. Giving birth in Barcelona and Madrid is traditionally more expensive than giving birth in Alicante or Valencia.

Some hospitals offer package deals that include the following services:

  • natural childbirth;
  • anesthesia;
  • examination by a gynecologist and neonatologist;
  • nutrition;
  • hospital stay 2-3 days.

For the birth of a child in Spain, parents pay 3-4 times less than in hospitals in Switzerland or the United States.

Childbirth in Spain for Ukrainians

For Ukrainians, free childbirth in Spain is available, subject to legal status. For example, for those who have a residence permit. In this case, the woman in labor will be delivered in a state clinic.

You need to know that everyone who is on a tourist visa in Spain can be provided with free assistance only in emergency cases. Such cases include premature birth in Spain for Ukrainians.

An important nuance that concerns childbirth in Spain for Ukrainians with a residence permit: a child can apply for Spanish citizenship after 1 year.

Childbirth in Spain: medical policy

According to many who have had a chance to give birth in Spain, purchasing health insurance in advance is advisable. This can be done by both residents and non-residents of the country. The medical policy covers all or part of the costs associated with childbirth. To do this, you need to contact one of the private insurance companies.

Important: not all insurances cover pregnancy and childbirth, so you need to take this factor into account.

Some of the health insurances that cover the management of pregnancy and childbirth, as well as emergency medical care:

  • International health insurance (International Health Insurance);
  • Traveler’s Insurance policy;
  • Accident and Sickness Insurance for Overseas Travel.

All medical documents must be translated into Spanish in advance to visit the insurance company.

Where to give birth in Spain: the best clinics

There are many hospitals available in Spain that are equipped with modern equipment. They will provide high-quality medical care to mothers and babies. Barcelona is the most popular city in Spain where expectant mothers come to give birth.

More than 1,200 births take place in Barcelona hospitals every year. It is important that cesarean section is resorted to in exceptional cases – this is no more than 25%.
