What advice do you have for expats having a baby in Vienna?

Answer this Question

We asked expat moms who gave birth in Vienna about their experiences and advice they have for other moms to be. They said...

"1. Look into asking for Austrian health insurance for yourself and your baby, so that you are sufficiently covered for medical care. 2. Contact the embassy or foreign ministry in Vienna to learn about what documents you need to register your baby's birth. 3. Find out about the regulations for parental leave in Austria and make sure that you understand what rights and benefits you are entitled to as a parent. 4. Take advantage of the wealth of child-friendly recreational activities available in Vienna- parks, museums, zoos, playgrounds, and libraries all make great baby outing destinations. 5. Get to know other expat families with young children so that your family can enjoy a sense of community and support. 6. Ask locals and expats alike for advice on the best hospitals and doctors in the city. 7. Sign up for packages or gift baskets with baby products, as Vienna has a variety of such services available," said another expat in Vienna, Austria, Austria.
