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

Answer this Question

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

"It is important to research the medical facilities available in Panajachel before having a baby. Make sure to find a doctor or midwife who is experienced in delivering babies in the area. It is also important to have a plan for the delivery and post-natal care, including a plan for transportation to a hospital if necessary. Additionally, it is important to be aware of the cultural norms and expectations for childbirth in Guatemala, and to be prepared to adjust to them. Finally, it is important to build a support network of family and friends who can provide assistance during the pregnancy and after the baby is born," said another expat in Panajachel, Guatemala.

"Have a plan B in case you went your baby delivered at home.. If you choose a doctor be sure he won't put you on a schedule and make the baby come when he wants as they have the tendency to do it.," wrote a member who made the move to Panajachel, Guatemala.
