Hola Todas.

I will be transferring to my company's Dubai office in mid-January. My wife and I will be doing at least a two year stint, but we are also ready to start trying for our first rugrat. My question is about the hospitals there, specifically the American hospital in Dubai. Are there any hospitals in which anyone would feel 110% comfortable with delivering a child there? I have not been to the American hospital there yet, but I have my hopes up that it has better standards than the others I have seen. For work, I have visited 18 UAE hospitals and a dozen clinics over the past 10 months and I would definitely send my wife home for her final three months if it truly doesn't get better than them.

Thanks so much for your input. We are moving regardless of the answers to my question, but this is something very important to us (more so than package amounts and finding affordable living), so I want you to know we really appreciate and look forward to your input!

Also, 10 bonus points to whoever can name the movie from which I took my thread title. (quit googling it. that's cheating) :)

Thanks,
Starv

Popular hospitals for expats giving birth are the American Hospital and Medcare. Al Wasl is a government hospital but has the best neo-natal unit and is good for potential difficult births. I have friends who have given birth at each of them and has decent experiences. (Princess Haya gave birth at Al Wasl.)

Check out xxxxx there is an interesting thread on there about Al Wasl that may put you off going there. For aftercare trixabell.com provide maternity nurses and nannies etc.
There is also a breastfeeding support group in Dubai also on yahoo groups who meet up regular.

Good luck getting up the duff!
