Re: Should I preregister for giving birth with my hospital?

The Bump Expert

Why not? Basically, preregistering just gets most of your hospital paperwork out of the way before you come in to deliver. This way, the docs and nurses have your info (employment info, insurance documents and the like), and your file will be all ready to go when baby decides it’s time to make an appearance. It shouldn't take too long, and you might even be able to do it over the telephone or Internet.

If your hospital allows preregistering, we say go for it -- you probably won’t be too excited about signing forms and digging for your insurance card once you’re in active labor. (Think your partner can simply deal with the forms? Maybe so, but that means you'll be missing his support while he's busy with the paperwork. It can also save you from potential insurance headaches down the road -- mistakes are more likely if you register at that last (crazy) minute.

The hospital I am delivering at requires pre-registration. Make sure to check whether or not you have to.

re: Q: Preregister with hospital?

The hospital we go to has nothing but private rooms and you usually stay in the same room to deliver atleast we were able to with our first.Well when it was time for our second child to come into the world we were bumped from our room because they didn't expect us...our doctor's office was handeling the pre-registration and the hospital never recieved our paperwork! We ended up in a birthing room and waited about 4 more hours after our son was born for our own room. This time around I'll be sure we are pre-registered. I highly advise checking into wether or not you need to pre-register. It's no fun walking the halls before your about to give burth because your rooms not ready or having to move everything from three different places before your setteled in when you could have just been in one spot all along.

My hospital does not do preregistering. I was told I could not due to the fact they do not have any appointments to match my information with. I really wish I could schedule my delivery! I have a tendency to go into premature labor and would prefer to have the paperwork taken care of.

You could ask for the paper work in advanced, if you can get it then you can still have everything ready in advanced.

This is a good idea but be sure the registration person uses the same medical record number and account number that you were registered with...I work at a hospital in the medical records dept. and this is a recurring problem that I deal with at work. I am 34 weeks pregnant and will deliver at my hospital but I am not going to pre-register for that reason!

Q&A: Should I preregister with the hospital?

Yes, When I was in labor with my first child they had me signing things while I was in labor. It is very annoying and uncomfortable. I was literally 30 minutes from the pushing stage so I was just signing anything.

I pre-registered last year, so i will be doing so again this year, my only concern is when to do it at 6mths or at 7mths?

I have to agree that preregistering is probably the smart thing to do. Saving time and going to the hospital for giving birth as fast as possible is the best choice. I remember when I had to follow an eating disorder treatment. Preregistering saved me a lot of time.

I don't know what to say about this, but if you need nighthawk radiology, preregistering could help you a great deal when scheduling a new treatment. Think about it and make the right decision for you. Good luck!!

Have you ever considered talking to a person who has a master of science in nursing? I'm sure that such a person can help you make the right choice. Hope you find my advice useful. Good luck!!

The paperwork in advance seems the best to me. This is only my first, but it seems that there are some problems I've heard about (as the Medical Records person said above) but if you have all the paperwork yourself, all you have to do is keep it with your 'bag' and hand it to them when you walk in. No confusion, but bypassing the 'last minute' decisions or papers.

Q&A: Should I preregister with the hospital?

I'm glad my hospital doesn't do pre registering because I don't know where am i going to be when the baby comes.

Q&A: Should I preregister with the hospital?

in order to pre register at my hospital, you have to have a set date to put in there and i know this baby isnt going to come out on his due date. he already has a mind of his own and doesnt like to do what the doctor says when he says it.

Q&A: Should I preregister with the hospital?

Yes. Most hospitals offer tours of the obstetrical floor at designated times, and it's a good idea to take advantage of this opportunity. In fact, if you're taking childbirth education classes at the hospital where you'll be giving birth, you'll probably get a tour at some point during the course. The more familiar you are with your surroundings, the less intimidating labor will be. I am planning also to change my looks after the birth. I already booked a meeting at Seattle breast augmentation Center.

I am a first time mommy, and 6 1/2 mos pregnant. I definitely want to pre register, so that I don't have to fill out all the forms while having contractions, and being in active labor. I need to call or go by my hospital very soon.

Preregistering is going to be alot easier then doing it when you get there, by the time you get there you won't even want to think about doing stuff like paper work.
