pregnant and moving to Geoje/Busan-need help

 

I am five months pregnant and moving to Geoje. 
I am looking for recommendations on good hospitals, english speaking obstetrician and midwife either on Geoje Island or in Busan. Any other helpful advice from anyone with similar experience would be really appreciated.
Thanks

Hi, There is an Okpo International Mums Facebook page that has all the information you are looking for, and lots of ladies in your very situation! There is a clinic in Okpo called Mizmom that most of the foreign ladies opt to have their babies in. The clinic has 2 or 3 doctors who speak English and offer ante natal and post natal care. Don't worry you will be absolutely fine (there is even a mums and bumps / mums and new babies group that meets in Okpo Starbucks!). Best of luck.

This doesn't really answer your question, but if you are on facebook, I suggest joining the Expat Parents Korea! group if you haven't already. It's a great resource to have during pregnancy and afterwards~
