"It is important to research the healthcare system in Denmark before having a baby, as it may be different from what you are used to. Make sure to register with a local doctor and hospital as soon as possible, so that you can access the necessary care during your pregnancy. Additionally, it is important to familiarize yourself with the maternity leave and childcare policies in Denmark, as they may differ from those in your home country. Finally, make sure to take advantage of the many resources available to expat parents in Denmark, such as support groups and online forums," remarked another expat in Denmark.
