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

"Make sure to find an experienced local midwife or obstetrician who you trust to care for yourself and your baby throughout the pregnancy. Additionally, research local hospitals to ensure you are comfortable with both their facilities and the providers should an emergency or unplanned c-section be necessary. Make sure to talk to other expats to gain insight into the particular challenges and considerations associated with having a baby in Jamaica. Lastly, you should be aware of the mandatory vaccinations for infants in Jamaica and understand the purpose of each immunization," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Jamaica.
