Having babies in Malta
Having babies in MaltaLast year an international magazine voted Malta to be one of the best places to live in the world.

And after living here for more than 2 ½ years I tend to agree. Live is easy, relaxed and good but also make rooms for many new ideas and more hectic lifestyle (if one should want that)


15 month ago I got pregnant, and that of course raises the big questions, is Malta a place I want to stay? Where to get my baby? Is it easy to meet other mums? What stuff should I buy ? Can I buy it in Malta? And much much more.
We decided quite fast to get our Baby in Malta, and the choice was between St James, which is a private hospital for delivery or Mater Dei,which is the big public hospital. But because of my earlier complications getting children, St James advised us to use Mater Dei, because they have more advanced equipment. So we chose Mater Dei, a decision, for which I’m very happy.

The baby was delivered with caesarean, and we were allowed to stay in the hospital for 5 days, where we received extremely good care. Afterwards the midwife visited us 3 times in our home to check everything is good.

Picture: Lucas is now 6 months, and a happy very healthy baby boy, who enjoys baby swimming and play with other babies, we therefore created a group for parents, so its easy to meet and have playdates and exchange tips and tricks. See the link below.

So are you a mum or dad, wondering about the opportunities or living in Malta with you baby or kids.
Don’t worry – life is good here also for families and its easy to get new friends, for you and your baby;)

FACEBOOK LINKS:
To meet other parents, for socialising, playdates, mamas groups, tips and tricks etc.
Sell and buy your baby stuff
Babyswimmming for babys and toddlers

FACTS ABOUT HOSPITALs:
St James is a privately owned hospitals, where there have emergency rooms, if you have health insurance, they will normally cover urgent/emergency matters, there is normally very little waiting time.
Mater Dei is a new BIG public hospital, and is free for you as a foreigner if you or your spouse has an income in Malta. There is usally long waiting but the service and treatment are very professional and nice.

8th October 2011
Garden View

The children live in a hurry-up world of busy parents, school pressures, incessant lessons, video games, malls, and competitive sports. We usually don't think of these influences as stressful for our kids, but often they are. Yoga brings that marvellous inner light that all children have to the surface! In addition their flexibility, strength, body awareness, concentration and sense of calmness improves and helps them navigate life's challenges with a little more ease.
