How many mummies actually walked-in for your delivery? ie, you admit to hospital for delivery straight w/o doctor's admission? Meaning, you never book any gynae, just walk in straight when delivery.
What are the procedures like?
you go straight to the delivery ward or do admission first?
When I had a false alarm I also walked in . The docs and nurse will settle you down first until it's confirm you're into labour provided yr already dilated down there . Then they will ask your Hubby or whoever with you to settle the administrative stuffs while your in the labour ward waiting .
The 2nd time when I'm in labour also same case . You wait at labour ward with your contractions and hubby went to settle the administrative stuffs .
I just went to Delivery Suite straight away when I start to have contractions.
The nurse will put you under the observation rm to cfm that you are in labour. After that they will send sent you into the labour ward.
While the paper works are done by husband....
if cannot walk, they will whell you in wheelchair... that's what happened to me... cuz for my case, my waterbag already broke @ home so they sent me to the labour ward straight...
In the labour ward, have to see how fast your cervix dilate to 10cm... I waited for coming 12 hours before I could see my little prince.. It took me almost 9 hours for my cervix to dilate to 10cm... But it also depends on individuals... Some their deliveries are fast & some are slow...
hope it helps again...

Maybe you can ask your hubby to standby when it's nearer to your EDD? Or maybe just ask your hubby to let his company knows about it, as in when it's nearer to your EDD?
But normally you have to keep lookout of the 3 symtoms if you're in labour... 1. 'Show' as in got blood, 2. Waterbag breaks & 3. Contractions (as in the interval getting closer & stronger).
What are contractions?
Can briefly describe?
AJ, how many children do you have?
Does waterbag broke for C-section case as well?
did you deliver on your EDD date exactly? Or how early/late were you?
to me, contractions are like severe menstrual cramps - like every 5 mins pain, something like that.
Eve , if i'm not wrong you can also settle the administrative stuffs now also . Decide on what ward you want etc. sign the medisave form . I've a friend who also did that in advance . Also deliver at Kandang Kerbau Hospital one . You can ask them .
