Is a public Hospital ok?
I am 32 yrs old and the main bread winner. My husband is a full time student. We have been married for 3 yrs and would love to start a family. The problem is that we do not have a medical aid.

I have a big fear for a public hospital and if I and my baby would receive proper medical care. Would it be ok to give birth in a public hospital or is it better to leave the issue of having children?

Public hospitals have excellent medical care. It is the 'hotel'facilities- beds,food, waiting times, which are not so good.
