Question in Family and Children

Question : How can I prepare for childbirth abroad?

Answer from Marianne de Vries, expert in Family Life

The prospect of giving birth here in Saudi Arabia can be very intimidating, especially if you are new to the country, do not know your way around yet and miss the support of your family and friends. Start by reaching out and trying to build a small, local network of support and information. There are groups that you can join on Facebook and WhatsApp, as well as in-person groups, that discuss topics related to childbirth and parenting in Saudi Arabia. You may want to consider hiring a doula to help you navigate your options and support you during your birth, or attend local childbirth classes. Almost all medical staff and childbirth professionals in Saudi Arabia speak English.
