Expat Health Insurance and Healthcare in Brussels, Belgium

Good "médecins traitants" often don't accept new patients any more. Even in a family without any serious health problems, it pays to have one, so do invest some time in finding a good one: Ask colleagues, neighbours and so on. Belgians in general are happy to help and give advice.

Having a Baby in Brussels, Belgium

Overall it was pleasant. I used an mostly expat hospital as I am a native English speaker, mostly for convenience to my home. (Edith Cavell)The doctor was not as open / offering as normally what I am used to: I always felt that she was not telling me any details unless I probed heavily. I think that this was partially a cultural thing, as she stated that the baby is the primary concern, but it made me a little on edge the entire time. Overall, the pain management was good and my delivery was seamless, and I had an epidural also. The hospital stay was 5 days and absolute heaven. They will insist on emphasizing breastfeeding exclusively and will support you in this endeavor unless you specifically have a reason against it.
