New father to be!

A lot of expats increasingly settle in Cambodia with families and kids, or acquire them while here. This forum is a place to ask questions and discuss all things family.

Regarding the certificate of birth from the hospital. Yes, I was referring to having the names translated - also I had to get a translation for my occupation. Think that was it. If either Cambodia or Thailand I'd ask for the form well in advance so you can get that done. I ended up paying over $100 to have about 5 words translated for the form.

As for the facilities at Royal. I found them to be clean and satisfactory. The nursery appeared to be well kept and always staffed (I wasn't allowed in it but can see through a window). And the nurses were mostly very attentive. The only negative comment I'd have is our newborn's pediatrician was never around and I literally had to track him down to ask a few questions before being discharged. As I had stated previously I was very pleased with the doctor that did the delivery (he was not my wife's primary doctor - we had met him once when she was away and we had an appointment). My wife gave birth somewhere around 1:30-2am and I felt she receive proper care from entering the ER to giving birth.

One thing that caught me out was that I didn't bring clothes for the baby to the hospital - so I had to leave and get some clothes for the baby before they would transfer him up to the nursery.

One nice thing for myself about Royal was that there is a small restaurant in the basement and that allowed me to get my wife and myself food anytime we were hungry during the day. And there was a large sofa in he room that I slept on a few times for a few hours and I was allowed to use the shower in my wife's room to freshen up (they provided extra towes).

Hope that helps.

How do pregnant wives of expats get transported to the hospital when their water breaks? Tuk tuk?

Well, it’s take a Grab in Bangkok. If we were in PP I’d have driven.

I assume they don't need transport as they are already in hospital, well my wife was anyway. Prior Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performance, or Prior Preparation Prevents Panic! or something along those lines :grin:

These videos from Seth Meyers about the birth of each of his sons are pretty funny:
