    name of the city or town that you are reporting on Arusha Describe your experience giving birth there What type of facility did you go to What if any type of pain management did you use How long did you stay in the hospital Was it a positive experience Etc I researched many facilities to have my child in Tanzania All the way from Dar to Arusha to the neighboring country of Kenya I even looked into a home birth with medical supplies at the the bedside I spoke with an expat midwife here in TZ I just knew she was going to tell me to have the baby at home all natural etc etc Instead she told me that the risk are far to great here to have a baby at home living just outside of Arusha she advised me to not even have the baby in the county of TZ but go to Kenya to the Nairobi Hospital I spoke with more Dr s and again they all recommended going to another country if you have the options I spent most all of my entire pregnancy in Tanzania went back to the U S 6 weeks before the delivery and returned to TZ 6 weeks after the delivery If you are choosing to have your baby in TZ then I would recommend the Lutheran hospital in Arusha TZ or going to Nairobi I have spoken with other expats that have had their baby at the Lutheran Hosp and said that is was a good experience I am a Registered Nurse and I think that when you are educated on the risk and have another option that is safer you go with that one The hospitals are not the same I have seen used syringes laying around remember HIV is Very common in TZ And many other crazy unsanitary things But again many TZ women here have babies are live but sadly there are many who do not TZ has a very high mortality rate of mothers after birth Hope this has helped How did you choose your doctor midwife or other type of medical professional For my pre natal care I went to a nearby clinic It was great My ultrasounds cost 8 usd and 20 usd another time But again this is third world living so you can t expect a lot If you were to have another child in this country would you do anything differently in terms of preparation and or the delivery If we were to have another child and it was not near the time for us to go back home on furlough like it was before Then I would probably have the baby in Kenya or the Arusha Selian Lutheran Hosp If a friend of yours living in the same country were expecting what advice would you give her There are so many what if s when having a baby in a third world country I would tell my friend that she
