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

Answer this Question

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

"Firstly, it's important to familiarize yourself with the Portuguese healthcare system. Portugal has a high standard of healthcare, and maternity services are generally very good. However, you may want to consider private healthcare if you want more personalized care or if you're not comfortable with the Portuguese language. Secondly, make sure you understand the legal requirements for having a baby in Portugal. You will need to register the birth within 20 days at the local civil registry office. If you're not married, both parents will need to be present to register the birth. Thirdly, consider hiring a doula or midwife who can provide support and guidance throughout your pregnancy and childbirth. They can help you navigate the healthcare system, understand your options, and advocate for your wishes. Fourthly, it's a good idea to learn some Portuguese or find a translator. While many doctors and nurses speak English, not all hospital staff may be fluent. Having some knowledge of the local language can make your experience smoother and less stressful. Fifthly, connect with other expats who have had babies in Portugal. They can provide valuable advice and insights, and may be able to recommend doctors, midwives, or hospitals. Lastly, embrace the local culture and traditions. Having a baby in a foreign country can be a wonderful opportunity to learn about and participate in local customs related to pregnancy and childbirth," commented one expat who made the move to Tavira , Portugal.
