Maternity hospitals

0 Replies

Hi all, I am 13 weeks pregnant, staying in Portugal, a non resident. I plan to have the baby in the uk but will stay in Portugal until I am about 32 weeks with a couple of visits back to the uk for scans and midwife care through the NHS. I want to know if I need to see a doctor or have an emergency in the Algarve where is it best to go? I have travel insurance which will cover emergency medical costs. I speak pigeon Portuguese so in an emergency English speaking professionals would be a plus. I am based near Lagos. There is a private hospital there but I don’t think they have a specialised maternity unit? Any advice/experience much appreciated. Thanks
