My husband and I are relocating to Nairobi from the UK in April/May when I will be five months pregnant. I would be really interested in anyone's views on a few points that we are thinking about:
- advice on healthcare facilities in Nairobi, private hospitals/clinics (any names or links would be very useful as I've been struggling to find these)
- do expats take anti-malarials in Nairobi? I've read that there is no malaria in Nairobi, but given the dangers of contracting malaria during pregnancy, do people take them just in case?
- any personal experiences of having a baby in Kenya would be really useful!
- What do you think would be the downsides of not staying in the UK to have my baby? There are lots of positives to moving overseas and we are excited about starting up in a new place, however I would like to take a balanced approach and weigh up the various options.
Thanks so much in advance for your advice
