Give birth in Dubai or UK?
I’m currently 9weeks pregnant (first time!) and facing a huge dilemma. I live in the UK with my husband and in-laws. My family however, live in Dubai. I really want to travel to Dubai for the delivery just so I can have my mum’s support at the time but I’m not sure about the level of care I will receive compared to the UK?
Also another huge factor is cost.. free vs. Upward of 6000 AED... but my in laws are a loud boisterous family and I know I won’t be able to recuperate after the delivery like I would need to, so would it be worth the cost just to escape that?
Basically it boils down to mums care vs. free healthcare... what would you guys choose?
My residence visa is still valid as I come and go a lot but my husband would be coming on a visit visa. Will this be a problem in opening a maternity file?
Also would be grateful if anyone could recommend any good hospitals/doctors in Dubai!
Thanks so much.
