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

Answer this Question

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

"1. Make sure to research the healthcare system in Norway and familiarize yourself with the maternity services available in Stavanger. 2. Consider joining a local expat group or forum to connect with other expats who have had babies in Stavanger and can provide advice and support. 3. Take advantage of the free antenatal classes offered by the Norwegian health service to learn about the birthing process and what to expect. 4. Make sure to register with a local doctor and midwife as soon as possible to ensure you have access to the best possible care during your pregnancy. 5. Consider hiring a doula or birth assistant to provide additional support during the birthing process. 6. Familiarize yourself with the Norwegian language and culture to make the transition to parenthood in Norway smoother," wrote a member who made the move to Stavanger, Norway.

"If she were able to have a natural child birth, I would say 'go for it'. If she knew up front that she needed a c-section or there could be any complications, I would say 'run'," explained one expat living in Stavanger, Norway.
