I moved to Dubai when I was 23 weeks pregnant with my first baby. It was quite overwhelming. I felt confident that I knew how things worked in the UK baby-wise and moving meant I would lose that familiarity. A lot of questions went through my mind:
Where should I give birth?
Would my husband be allowed in the delivery room with me?
How does insurance work?
Can I buy all the baby things that I would want to buy in the UK?
Will it be too hot for a baby in summer?
Will I be able to breast-feed in public?
I think some of my family and friends were quite shocked when we said I’d be having our baby in Dubai. Maybe they imagined me giving birth in the middle of the desert in a tent! In truth, Dubai has everything you need and possibly more.
