This is my post delivery review of Seibo Hospital. I also list Dr. Sakamoto`s delivery fees for my Jan 2011 Delivery below.
- Nice facilities
- Super friendly staff
- Choice of Japanese or Western meals (typical hospital food).
- They allow one family member room-in for an extra charge.
- You have 24-hour access to your baby. If you need to rest, the nursery will take care of your baby in the nursery.
- NICU available
- Dr. Sakamoto recommended this hospital. Being his patient pretty much guarantees you a private room.
- The hospital is a bit old.
- Not all the rooms have showers. I had to shower down the hall.
- The nurses spoke limited English.
- Lack a surgeon to perform circumcisions.
- If you want an epidural you have to use Dr. Sakamoto or have a scheduled delivery.
Note: Bring your own bath towel, snacks and lots of water. I gave birth in Winter. The rooms were extremely dry.
