    Hospitals that let the Dad in for the Birth

    My beloved wife is about to give birth within the next 3 weeks

    She has asked the Doctor if I ( husband) could be present during the birth.
    The Doctor has said no as it goes against Hospital rules.

    I am out at Rangsit. ( Future Park area)

    Does anyone know of a Hospital friendly to Dads being in the birthing room to hold wifes hand ?

    Public/private it doesn't matter I really want to be there.

    Private hospital usually yes. Government ones no. And you gotta beg to be in for a C section at a private one. We were at Chula and it was C section hence I was not there for the birth but have a video of it.

    Chulalongkorn Hospital, Its opposite Lumpini Park and Rama IV Road. Very big it goes from Henri Dunant to Rajadamri. My doctor asked do you want doctors on duty full time or access to KFC, I went with the doctors!! And chose Chula over Bumramgrad. Cheaper by far and we had the VIP room so it was great.

    It's surprising to hear of hospitals that don't allow the father to be present at a non-Caesarean birth. That was true almost universally in the USA until about 1975, and they almost yanked medical licenses from the obstetricians who pioneered letting the father be present. Now it's common to allow them in. I was present for the last three kids. Of course, my daughters have all had C-sections (7 out of 7, so far), as if vaginal delivery became taboo after 1983. The surgeon earns much more for a C-section.

    Good luck. Being with your wife during the delivery is a great experience. And it ain't easy.

    Mate it was 8years ago. Government rate=cheaper. The VIP room I think was 1200 baht extra, but you have to have a connection to the hospital or you wont get one. Then as is standard practice you slip the doctor his fee. I think it was about 15,000 baht for his fee.

    This is Standard Operating Procedure here dont even think about it.

    PM me if you like, but also google up birth delivery deals in BKK, I know most hospital have specials. Around 30,000 baht for 3 nites and all the goodies a year or so ago.

    The fees apply for specialist doctors who work at goverment hospitals. They get paid diddly for their work and my cost was for twins C section.

    Chula is a really first rate hospital I saw a consultant there for a tricky medical condition and he was extremely professional and constantly undercharged me as I was a young 'un in Thailand on my own

    Mate, do you really want to be in there with her? I was for our first (in England), but she got me in a headlock and taught me some new swear words.
    Second time around I was saved by the staff at Chao Phya who said "You stay here" and pointed to a rather comfy-looking sofa in the waiting area.

    Phew.

    Im from a Farming back ground and assisted a cow ( alone) at age 10.
    I tied a rope on ( as I had seen dad do) and pulled I ended up on the ground with calf blood and after birth all over me. the calf was not breathing so i did as me dad did and picked it up by the back legs and attempted to swing it around...the calf let out a baaa , the cow a moo and all was well.


    I have seen enough births of animals ( and video of humans ) I just want to be there for my wife..I don't think I would want to be there for a C section tho.

    I haven't got any big black lung cancer sticks imported from Huvana to be presented around in the waiting room

    Yeah, it's not dissimilar, but, like I said, watch out for the headlock.
