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

"I would suggest checking on different hospitals, such as Tu Do, Columbia, FVH and a few others. Hospitals are competitive and like to show off what they do. Take a tour and choose a hospital one is comfortable with and will accept their respective insurance programs, if the prospective patient has one," commented one expat who made the move to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

"Make sure to research your options for prenatal and postnatal care before making a decision. Talk to as many people as possible to get their advice and suggestions. Be sure to look for a doctor or midwife who is properly accredited and has experience caring for expats. Have a plan in place for how you wish to handle labor and delivery, and consider the quality of care available in various hospitals in the area before committing to one. Prepare in advance for the costs associated with having a baby in Vietnam by inquiring about health insurance and other financial resources available. Finally, be sure to connect with other expat parents who have recently had a baby in Vietnam - they can offer a great deal of advice and insight into the experience," remarked another expat in Vietnam.
