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

"If you're an expat having a baby in Portugal, it's important to make sure that you have the necessary paperwork in order beforehand. Research the best hospitals or clinics in the area and make sure to book any necessary appointments ahead of time. If you require insurance, research the various options to ensure you get coverage for all necessary medical services. It's also important to have a good understanding of the Portuguese healthcare system and the resources available to help you during your journey as an expat parent. Lastly, connect with fellow expats and take advantage of expat-specific support groups to get advice and assistance in navigating the process," said another expat in Portugal.
