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

Answer this Question

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

"1) Start researching the medical care available to you in Quito as soon as possible, so you have time to make a well-informed decision. 2) Reach out to the local expat community for tips and advice about birthing centers, pediatricians and any other maternity-related services. 3) Make sure to enroll your child in a health insurance plan at birth, so you can be prepared for any unexpected medical costs. 4) Plan ahead for any additional transportation or childcare needs after the baby is born. 5) Take advantage of assistance programs offered by the government or local NGOs to help cover the costs of mother and baby care. 6) Consider enrolling yourself and your baby in free or low-cost prenatal or postnatal classes. 7) Before giving birth, be sure to review the cultural and legal aspects of having a baby in Ecuador, such as registering with the government, applying for the baby’s passport, and obtaining the necessary documentation. 8) Make sure to set aside some time to relax and take in the joy of having a new baby," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Quito, Ecuador, Ecuador.
