"For expats expecting a baby in Spain, it is important to plan in advance to ensure a smooth and stress-free experience. Research Spanish childbirth and parenting practices and familiarize yourself with the local healthcare system and policies. Make sure you understand the language and cultural differences, so you are aware of the potential challenges and how to manage them. Where possible, connect with other mothers and expats who have given birth in Spain and seek their advice. Be sure to register with a healthcare provider and procure the necessary documents such as a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) and insurance policies. Additionally, build a close relationship with a doctor or midwife and be aware of the birthing options available to you," remarked another expat who made the move to Spain.
