Advice on delivery please

Hi mummies! I’m a FTM going 21 weeks. Currently going to KKH subsidised route. I really desire for a unrushed and unmedicated natural birth with hopes of unnecessary intervention unless me or baby is in danger. Idw to be pressured to get a c sect or epidural just because the doc wants to rush. (Heard of such situations) I was wondering if I should change to a private hospital so I can get to choose my doctor? I’m really not sure about KKH’s delivery too since I don’t think I’ll be able to choose my doctor who is delivering my baby right? Mummies who went through subsidised route please advise! Any advice would be helpful. Or any specific doctors in mind. Thank you. #1stimemom #firstbaby #pregnancy

Hi, I went through the KKH subsidised route all the way to my delivery day. :) Delivery day the main person in the labour room with me was a mid-wife. She looked young but I must say she was really calm and handled all the situations well. She even instructed me how to push, asked for permission to do episiotomy and instructed my husband to hold my head up. I didn’t take epidural etc. All natural. The doctor only came in after my labour for stitching (that’s after abt 1hr after giving birth maybe cos my baby came out at midnight). Other than the stitching part, I was pleased with my first time experience at KKH.
