Part 2 of 4: We did our best to remember all of the questions we had going into giving birth abroad. Looking back, we really went out on a limb coming to Costa Rica without visiting first 🙂
Could we pay with a credit card? What about pre-natal visits? Can you get on an airplane 9 months pregnant? Would they let us through customs? What about the language barrier? Were we taking on too much trying to stay in a hotel room (AirBnb) as new parents?
Of course, everything turned out great. Our OBGYN (Dr. Paer), our hospital (CIMA), and our pediatrician (Dra. Castro) all gave us world class care.
We made it! We hope you understand our absence lately, but we’ve been selling our things, moving, and preparing for our trip to Costa Rica.
We wanted to give you a quick tour of the neighborhood/hospital so you can get an idea of where we’re staying and where we’ll be giving birth. So far our experience has been much better than we could hope for!
