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

Answer this Question

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

"Firstly, it's important to familiarize yourself with the Croatian healthcare system. Public healthcare in Croatia is of a high standard, but it's advisable to also have private health insurance to cover any additional costs. Ensure that you have a good understanding of your rights and entitlements as an expat expecting a baby in Croatia. This includes understanding the maternity leave policy and any financial benefits you may be entitled to. Find a good obstetrician and hospital that you feel comfortable with. You can ask for recommendations from other expats or locals. Learn some basic Croatian medical terms or consider hiring a translator for your doctor's appointments. This will help you communicate more effectively with your healthcare providers. Consider joining local expat groups or online forums. These can be a great source of support and advice from people who have been in your situation. Prepare all necessary documents for your baby's birth certificate and passport well in advance. It's also important to understand the process of registering your baby's birth with your home country's embassy. Lastly, embrace the local culture and traditions related to pregnancy and childbirth. This can make your experience more enriching and enjoyable," remarked another expat in Zagreb, Croatia.
