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

Answer this Question

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

"It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the different maternity laws and benefits available in Oslo such as parental leave, financial benefits and childcare services, which are offered to both mothers and fathers. Also check with your workplace to find out what age your child must be to be eligible for daycare. It might also be worth considering joining a local antenatal class where you can get support and advice from GP's, midwives and other health visitors. As your due date approaches, make sure you have considered all of the potential childbirth options with your doctor, from natural childbirth to scheduled caesareans. Having an emergency plan in place for those times when you cannot get to the hospital (for example if you are not feeling well) is also important, as well as thinking about who you would like to be with you during labour and delivery. Finally, make sure you have a network of reliable friends and family who can give you extra support during this life-changing time," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Oslo, Norway.
