Natural birth Parisa
Natural Birth in Madrid. When I arrived in Spain 3 months pregnant with our first child, I knew very little about childbirth in general, let alone the cultural nuances that exist in Spain. My first experience was horrible albeit in a famous and reputable private hospital. I had an enema, induction, epidural, recommendation for caesarian delivery, episotomy, use of forceps, and finally re-stitching of the episotomy (twice!). I didn´t know what to compare it to but I was not very happy after the whole experience.
With our second child, I went to a different private clinic by my office and was scared that I was heading down the same path. A friend of mine raved about Dr. Suarez, her natural delivery, and her speedy recovery. I immediately liked and connected with Dr. Suarez. She actually took the time to understand my prior experience and convince me that having a baby should be very different. At 29 weeks pregnant, I switched to her practice immediately and it was the best decision ever.
Leading up to the birth, I was in constant contact with her mid-wives via whatsapp. They helped navigate the last weeks of pregnancy and with Dr. Suarez, they all coached me through an amazing experience in the pool the day-of. I felt 200 times better immediately after delivery as well as in recovery, both physically and mentally. I highly recommend Dr. Suarez for a more natural, holistic experience in Madrid.
