Slm. I gave birth there in april and got good care shukr. Jst attend all ur prenatal appointments either @ clinic or @ rahima moosa. When u go in jst make sabr as they got all their own rules and if u listen to the nurses and do what they ask you will be ok. They take real good care of the babies with regard to checking them and injections and insha-Allah if natural birth you can go home after 6 hours or at most overnight.

My sister is thinking of going there at Rahima Moosa Hospital. Who helps to deliver the baby? Doctors or a midwife? And how's the facilities?

Hi there .. No need to worry at all .. My baby was born the night before old year eve 2014 .. Baby is healthy and service was really professional .. Nurses were great and very helpful .. An important tip is ask for painkillers if you feel you need more or else trhey won't do it without you asking.. Thinking you're fine .. They checked baby and me .. All meds were free and very safe .. Security is very good

Also .. Sent a fortune at Sandton mediclinic for the birth of my first 2 kids .. When I found out I was preg with baby number 3 I got a quote for R70000 for a c-section with a private gynae .. Was so worried about going to a gov hospital .. But the nurses were so kind .. Even better than in a private hospital .. Everything was completely free! Only that you share the ward with other moms going through the same thing as you .. Also babies crying in the ward so not much sleep I stayed for2 nights and then was released after my check up and all was fine .. Food is a bit bland .. Take some bottled water with you for taking pain killers .. Pads, nappies are free and provided .. In the front of the ward .. But if you feel too sore to walk .. Bring a few extra with you .. Wear shoes to protect your feet .. Cos some ladies drip some blood in the bathrooms .. But they do clean often

You do need to attend a specific clinic to go to Rahima M .. If you live in Randburg area you can go to Randburg clinic .. You will have to show proof of address , telephone or electric account will do .. Or if you're renting get someone to write a letter for you .. New applicants are accepted only on Tuesdays at Randburg clinic ( across from the taxi rank, next to licensing dept. .. They will check baby there and do blood tests etc .. Take a a day off for it .. Cos it takes quite long for the first time .. The green card you get when you get there is your ticket to get your delivery done at RM .. So keep it safe

The operation was done by only women staff .. Couldn't believe the level of care was very high .. Much more precaution taken than both my other c-sections at a private hospital .. The gynae was kind and very helpful .. Interns helped with the op .. But she did all of the main work .. They played music in the background to keep things happy and light while they worked .. Anaethetist was very caring .. Nurses showed kindness and concern .. No difference to private docter .. Hope your experience is similar .. Good luck and all of the best .. Ps: 2 months later and I have no scars .. My hubby says its as if I never had an op at all

Can you attend a gynaecologist for checkup then go to Rahima hospital for giving birth, I have all the tests done and the gynaecologist wrote me a letter. .The reason why i couldnt use clinic its because i am still new in this area and was told that there is no clinic here....would they accept me without green card? Please help
