I am anxious to know if the treatment 'Victoza' is prescribed to any type 2 Diabetics in Portugal. I want to spend a few months in Portugal but cannot do so if this treatment, which is the only one I have been able to tolerate in the last 5 years, is not available. If anyone replies positively, is it available on the National Health or privately?

Hi I am three months pregnant now and have had a complete nightmare with the private and public health system here and I was wondering if anyone could help me with a contact for a midwife who is located between Portimao and Lagos. I live in Monchique and have been told that there is an english midwife who works in the Portimao hospital called Sean/Shawn/Shaun (not sure how to spell her name). If any one does have her contact details, i would really be greatful if you could pass them on to me. i know that there is a midwife called Karen Morgan but she is based quite far away from Monchique. Also if anyone has a good gynaecologist male or female, please let me know their details, as well as any help with anything concerning pregnancy here in the Algarve. I have already had 2 internal scans, less than 2 weeks apart, which cost 100 euro each, I am positive these were totally unecessary as there was nothing wrong in the first scan, and i think the second one was done just because I was there for an apointment to collect my smear test result. A french friend of mine said she ended up having 15 scans here in the algarve and was so disillusioned by all the gynaecologists and the healh system that she went back to France to have her baby. So if anyone has had a positive experince, please let me know, I´d really appreciate it. Also,Has anyone had a baby in Alvor Hospital? Would you recommend it? thanks! Nirali
