I am a first time mum EDD 28 Sep.
I currently reside in Japan but plan to return to SG to deliver my baby. Honestly I have no courage to deliver my baby here in Japan because other than having to cope with the language barrier, I have to go through a 100% natural labour without epidural or options for other pain relief medication...
no no don't think I am ready for that. The Japanese are very pro-natural to such extent that doctors don't even prescribe supplements. In fact my gynae told me I don't need to take. I reckon the Japanese have good reasons for their way of doing things but I find it difficult to reconcile at times.
Hope that through this forum I can find out more about how ladies in SG are managing their pregnancies so that I wouldn't be at a total lost when I return to SG in a few months' time.
