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

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

"Ensure that both you and your partner are registered with a GP as soon as possible, as they will be able to help you throughout your pregnancy by providing support, advice, and guidance. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the NHS maternity services available to you. Look into private medical insurance to provide additional benefits such as choice of midwife and private rooms where available. Make sure to book antenatal classes and childbirth sessions in advance to ensure that you have the opportunity to get to know your chosen birthing partners and to ask any questions that you may have. Finally, don’t forget the importance of the hospital bag preparing; pack important documents, supplies and other items that may help you on the big day," said another expat in UK.

"Go with the flow and relax. Communicate and discuss.
So many people will look after you with that one midwife you don't get on with should not colour your vision of the whole team and experience or country.
I am gutted our next child will not be born there," wrote a member who made the move to London, UK.
