For our second baby, we chose hospital yang paling dekat dengan rumah. Ampang Puteri Specialist Hospital. The delivery package seems quite reasonable:
I chose Dr. Marsita Mansor cos I thought she was the only female gynecologist. Taktau pulak Dr. Marsita ni fofular! And tak tau pulak Ampang Puteri ada 4 female gynea! There is Dr Fauziah (she is very busy – the obgyn for Rozita Che Wan), Dr. Ariza and Dr. Zalina.
Anyway, Dr Marsita has her own clinic in Taman Melati.
No. 67, Jalan Melati Utama 4, Melati Utama, Setapak, Wilayah Persekutuan 53100 Kuala Lumpur
+60 3-4106 6990
Yang best pasal Dr Marsita ni, even when you dah berjanggut tunggu dia kat luar, once you see her, all your anger akan hilang. She just have that kind of presence yang macam mak mak gitu. Plus point is, she always advice to have natural birth. No epidural, no induce.
However, she’s only a visiting doctor in Ampang Puteri, not in house. Her clinic is only open on Tuesdays in Ampang Puteri. Other days, you need to go to her clinic to see her. So usually if you want to be admitted, she will ask you to go to her clinic first to make sure its not false alarm.
But considering our house is nearer to Ampang Puteri, we decided not to go and just wait for our next appointment with her there. Alhamdullilah masa jumpa dia I was already 5 cm dilated and they pushed me straight to labour room.
In the labour room
After dah get ready (pass motion, on CTG), I mintak nak walk around in the room , to speed up the contraction. Masa dah 7-8 cm tu baru start rasa contraction. And it was really coming on so I told the nurse I think I’m ready. But she said jangan push lagi..its not the time yet. Tunggu punya tunggu..and the contraction is becoming unbearable and I can already feel the urge to push. It really feels like you want to pass motion (sorryla dulu amik epidural, so tak rasa apa-apa) but the dr. still tak sampai. Ughhhh. Frustnya masa tu. But I gotta say the nurse was really really helpful. She asked me to lie sideways to reduce the urge. And she even stick her hand inside down there to make sure I dont push. The gas helps too 🙂 Oh the gas….sedut like crazy ok!
Once dr sampai je, sekali push…brrrrr…terus baby keluar. I think I was already crowning when she walked into the room. Second push, I could feel the placenta coming out. The nurse straightaway put the baby to my breast to breastfeed. It felt so good to feel the uterus contracting…
And seriously, jahit lepas bersalin is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy more irritating than giving birth itself. The jahit took a while cos she was pushing out blood clots. Twas a 2nd degree tear. But overall I was just thankful that baby was healthy and everything went smoothly.It took us almost 6 hours to get a room. Ampang Puteri kan selalu jer full. Even then, the only room available was the 2 bedded room. Belasah je la. Baby memang room in sekali. No complaints on the service tho. But if I can give advice, it will be :
