Hi Twirlgirl,

Dr Mouton at Femina is gr8, he is very very good with normal birth, I know he usually say normal is the best way to go and he has been at Femina for more then 6 years.

I don't know what his outlook is on twins but maby you can give him a try if you haven't already found a gyni.

DR Mouton's contact details: 012 323 7686.

Hope this helps. and best of luck!!!

You, your partner and baby will remember your birthing for the rest of your lives whereas your Caregiver will probably not remember you 3 - 6 months down the line. One of the most important decisions you make once pregnancy is confirmed is to choose your Caregiver. Gynaes generally will manage your birthing (main focus on what could go wrong) where a midwive will support your birthing and accept that this is a natural event) We have one of the highest caesearean rates in the world and one Johanneburg clinic in particular states that 80% of their births are c-sections. It is important to make your wishes clear very early on and if your Caregiver gives you glib answers or fobs you off then alarm bells should start ringing and you need to look elsewhere. Ask many questions (act like a consumer!). Once you have found the right person you have many months to educate yourself (go to natural childbirth classes) and build rapport with your Caregiver so that you can feel safe and secure on the big day!

Dear Hasie & Spiral

Thanks, I have tried both your options.
I am now pregnant with fraternal twins and due on 27 February 2013.
I am looking for a pro-natural gynaecologist in the Pretoria/Centurion area who has helped to deliver twins naturally before.
If there are no complications with my pregnancy I would like to give birth naturally and need an experienced Gynae for this.
Please advise

The midwifes need a willing gynaes input as well. I can't find any Gynae who is even offering natural birth...

Please help

Twirlgirl, your best bet in Pretoria is Femina Clinic and preferably the midwifes unit at the clinic. Check out their webpage, they are fabulous!! www.midwifes-exclusive.com

There are some gynies who really are pro-natural, but I find my clients have a better level of care through the midwifes.

I would rather recommend you engage the services of a private midwife for the rest of the pregnancy, birth & postnatal care. Try this lady

Hi there

I have been to several gynes and never felt comfortable with any spesific doctor.

For several reasons I chose to see a fertility specialist at Kloof Hospital in PTA.
My husband and I have been trying for 2.5 yrs to get pregnant and for the past 1.5 yrs I have been with Dr Pentz at Koof.

I will have to choose a new gyne once I fall pregnant, but really want to give natural birth. Nowadays most Gynes I have heard of promote cesareans and I do not wish to go that route.

Is there any Gyne at Kloof that any of you know of that is pro-natural birth?
