What advice do you have for expats having a baby in San Juan La Laguna?

Answer this Question

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

"Firstly, it's important to familiarize yourself with the local healthcare system and find a reliable doctor or midwife who can guide you through the pregnancy and delivery process. Secondly, ensure that you have comprehensive health insurance that covers maternity care and childbirth. Thirdly, learn some basic Spanish medical terms or have a translator, as English may not be widely spoken in healthcare settings. Fourthly, consider the location of the nearest hospital or clinic and how quickly you can get there in case of an emergency. Fifthly, be aware that medical facilities in San Juan La Laguna may not be as advanced as in your home country, so you may need to travel to a larger city for certain tests or procedures. Sixthly, make sure to follow local customs and traditions related to pregnancy and childbirth, as this can help you integrate into the community and make the experience more enjoyable. Seventhly, ensure that your baby's birth is registered with both the local authorities and your home country's embassy or consulate to ensure they have dual citizenship if applicable. Lastly, connect with other expats who have had babies in Guatemala, as they can provide valuable advice and support," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to San Juan La Laguna, Guatemala.
