Having a baby abroad can be even more difficult as you are frequently without the safety net of your friends and family. Even basics like how to find a doctor, birthing procedures, or even how to say baby can be out of reach.

Exploring your options and making your own choices is one of the best tools for feeling empowered in your pregnancy. The choice really is up to you, and realizing that you have control of your pregnancy options can relieve some of the uncertainty. Just like so many things in expatriation, research and planning are the key to a successful pregnancy abroad.

1. ...were destined for a different climate: Maybe you’re the one member of your family who doesn’t crisp in the sun, perhaps you’ve always been at home on ski slopes but were born nearer the desert, or, more likely, you’re just tired of the rain. Seeking sunnier, cooler, wetter or more temperate climes is perfectly reasonable and could even bring health benefits.
