Welcome to the Expats Portugal forum!

Since 2005, this forum has had over 6,000 people sign up and take part in our community.

It is a place for people who want to move to Portugal and for those already living here to meet and share knowledge through our community.

With the recent revamp of the site, we have chosen to keep the forum on the website rather than create a social media group as we know there are people concerned about privacy and who owns their data. Plus there is a wealth of information from the years gone by that we did not want to lose.

But this forum is nothing without your input. So come on in, take a look around, ask questions and answer a few.

Me and my partner are moving to Portugal (Region: Proença-a-Nova) and we are searching for an English speaking midwife, as i am giving birth to our first child there. We have done some research but haven't found much information on local midwives.

We are planning to have a home birth. Any tips and advice about this topic would be very helpful.

Thanks a lot in advance and look forward to conversing with you all.

There is one in the Gois area; but I have no idea if she works outside her normal area... also I am not sure she wants her name up here in forum; but she is well known among english speakers in the area.

Hi Pagan,

Thanks for the response. I can't imagine someone who earns there living through this wouldn't want to be identified, albeit if you can't write it publicly, are you able to PM me?

I would really appreciate any guidance.

Thank you and best wishes.
