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

Answer this Question

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

"Firstly, it's important to familiarize yourself with the healthcare system in Barbados. The country has a good standard of healthcare, with both public and private hospitals. However, private healthcare is recommended for expats for more personalized care. Ensure that you have comprehensive health insurance that covers maternity care. Some insurance companies may have a waiting period for maternity coverage, so plan accordingly. Find a good obstetrician and pediatrician. You can ask for recommendations from other expats or locals. Prenatal care is essential. Regular check-ups and scans should be part of your routine to ensure the health of both mother and baby. Consider hiring a doula or midwife for additional support during pregnancy and childbirth. They can provide emotional support and help with birth planning. Learn about the local customs and traditions related to pregnancy and childbirth. This can help you understand what to expect and how to navigate the system. Prepare for the climate. Bathsheba is a tropical location, so ensure you stay hydrated and protect yourself from the sun. Learn about the parental leave policies in Barbados if you are working. This will help you plan your time off work. Lastly, connect with other expat parents or join parenting groups. They can provide valuable advice and support during this time," commented one expat who made the move to Bathsheba, Barbados.
