Thailand is an excellent place to bring up an expatriate family. Private education is at the highest standard and the private health care system works very well indeed.
When thinking about expanding the family, you may initially wish to have the baby in your own country. However, before making a decision, it would be worthwhile to consult with your local private hospital for proper care and advise. After all, most families chose to have the baby in Thailand.
All the main international hospitals provide specialized maternity services and consultation to their foreign clients. Please see some references below:
REGISTRATION OF BIRTH / NATIONALITY
Once a baby is born, the hospital will help you with the proper local registration. In addition to the local registration, you should also register the baby with your Embassy. Please follow the Embassy’s guidelines for registration and inclusion in your passport.
