Part 2 of 4: We did our best to remember all of the questions we had going into giving birth abroad. Looking back, we really went out on a limb coming to Costa Rica without visiting first 🙂
Could we pay with a credit card? What about pre-natal visits? Can you get on an airplane 9 months pregnant? Would they let us through customs? What about the language barrier? Were we taking on too much trying to stay in a hotel room (AirBnb) as new parents?
Of course, everything turned out great. Our OBGYN (Dr. Paer), our hospital (CIMA), and our pediatrician (Dra. Castro) all gave us world class care.
