Hey girls! How does the labout thing work with these visiting docs at big hospitals??

I had chosen a nursing home where the owner and doc is the same so she is available fulltime however due to some sudden emergency i will have to keep an option ready.

The second doc that i am about to refer visits the hospital for 1 hr everyday. What confuses me is when i am in labour how will it work with her? How do such visiting docs visit? Or is it that the nurses do everything?

Please help.

In Labor – Finally!! When to Go to the Hospital?

Hey resham thanks for the reply but my query is different from the article yoi referred me to.

I also visit clinic like you are visiting no idea about visiting doc. And I don't think nurse are supposed to do all things alone without any supervision. You can ask your neighbour's for some good options.

Tag a mom you feel might have an idea Mrs Chhoker yaar as this is urgent. By monday i have to finalize.

I think they must be calling the doctor in when there is somebody with labour pains. You should ask all your doubts with the hospital staff before finalising a hospital

Neha Vij;; Richa Chowdhary do you have any idea

Revauthi Rajamani; Aditi Ahuja any idea about this

Nilofer shaikh; firstly the gynac that u visit and does Ur CHK. Up she will make sure she is around for Ur delivery. But incase she is not around they make the other gynac but 90%they be there themselves. When labour comes in the nurses can just assist u but all desicions are taken by the gynac. And also depends at what's the stage. As you proceed you keep getting a clear picture.

Generally they have junior / associate doctors from their team and they know ur complete details. They keep checking the dilation status of your cervix and other parameters and when it is right time they will call the main doctor.

I suggest you stick to one doctor. And any visiting doctor will make sure they stay with the patients during the labour and delivery. Because if they handle I as their patient they will surely attend to u in need..

Nilo the gynecologist whom u r visiting she will check u according to Ur pregnancy progresses right. If she knows when Ur is due date and she is around that time she will inform you before handed. Nurses never do everything on there own. If it is C-section or normal delivery the assistant doc will have enough time to inform the main doctor. If the emergency is there they will call the doctor immediately. And also if possible please consult the gynec who is available 24 hours. And do discuss everything beforehand to avoid confusion. All the best dear.

hi nilofer - i went thru this same dilemma. have u checked out her nursing home rooms and infrastructure as compared to the hospital's rooms and infrastructure? i chose the nursing home because she said she would be able to give me more personal attention but kicked myself later on as the hospital had better infrastructure. (her nursing home is super close to my house so that was a big consideration for me - i didn't want my parents to be inconvenienced). so before u decide check out both. also where will u get a better pead? that is very very important. my gynea's hubby is a pead so i thought it solved my problem at her nursing home - but my original pead is very old school and his advise was completely different from my gynea's hubby :) here is the thing - the nurses in the hospital will take care of u when u go into labour and ur dr will come to that hospital according to ur progress. there are lots of pros and cons for both - so u will need to take an informed decision! all the best. do let us know what u decide :)

The doctors are always informed by the assistant docs & all steps are taken with their consent. Most often senior doc's will come only at the end of everything is progressing well. Don't worry
