Hi everyone,
I was hoping you might be able to give me some infrormation about giving birth in Almaty. My husband and I are considering moving there and I'm currently pregnant. I can't really find much information about this online apart from one blog post about an expat who gave birth in a state hospital which sounded pretty horrific. Has anyone given birth in a private hospital in Almaty? Are there any international standard private hospitals there? The only ones I can find online are SOS which doesn't do deliveries and 'Private Clinic'. Does anyone have any experience with Private Clinic or can you recommend any other hospitals? Basically any information at all that you can give me would be really appreciated! Thanks so much!

Hi, I just moved here (Almaty) and have been looking into healthcare here. The general advice I have is that if there in any serious you should make sure you can get out quickly. Some of the foreign clinics seem good but they do not deal with child birth.

I hope that does not put you off moving here -- it is very nice. However you may want to consider having you baby in a western country where the standards are much higher and then moving.

Let me know if you want me to ask around in the ex-pat community as I know there are a number of families with young kids.

Best - Michael.
