Although it's been four years since our daughter was born in Buenos Aires, it seems like only yesterday. Four years ago when our life was changed forever and a beautiful baby girl was delivered into our arms by an incredibly caring and warm Dr. Federico del Giudice from the Grupo Medico Lomas de San Isidro in the northern suburbs of Buenos Aires. I have never met such a caring OB/GYN and would highly recommend him if you're thinking about having a baby. He was recommended to me by another expat and I'm so grateful for her recommendation.
Dr. del Giudice speaks mostly Spanish but does speak a bit of English which led to some pretty funny visits sometimes as me and my French husband would understand things differently. I would understand most of what he was telling me in Spanish but would sometimes mix up the structure and get it backwards but the husband would understand the linguistic structure but not the words so sometimes it took a couple of tries to make sure we were all on the same page :)
"Federico" as we were told to call him, worked with our Medicus insurance and a very nice private hospital Sanatorio Mater Dei. Medicus was amazing to work with and covered everything that he requested during, before, and after the birth. And, I can't say enough about the care I received at the hospital. Two very important requests were also not a problem - I was allowed to "room-in" with our new daughter which meant she stayed with me the entire time I was in the hospital and I requested she receive absolutely no formula.
So, if you're looking for a fabulous OB/Gyn in Buenos Aires then don't hesitate to contact Dr. del Giudice.
Oh and if you are looking for an English speaking doula then I would also highly recommend Maria Nogues. She is Argentine born, but an American educated doula who now practices in Buenos Aires. If you contact her be sure to tell her I sent you!
