Non Japanese Medical Experiences

    Home Births

    Surprisingly the doctor gave us only half the placenta

    Mother and Child

    I was treated the same in terms of the waiting time, but I could tell they were frustrated that I couldn't understand alot of their questions.

    Broken Bones and Miss Diagnosis

    An example of this was when I told doctor I had food poisoning but no diarrhea. The doctor then doled out 3 or 4 different types of medicine for diarrhea.

    Feeling Different in Hospital

    Definitely other patients stare at me in the waiting room and sometimes I hear people make comments to their family members about my appearance, such as how thin I am, etc.

    A Women's Experience

    I hear people make comments to their family members about my appearance, such as how thin I am, etc.
