Hi, I'm married to a (pregnant) Argentinian women and she wants to give birth in her own country - we don't actually live there for now and I'm a bit worried about the conditions of the hospitals there. Are they safe? Where's the best place to give birth in Buenos Aires? I'm hoping we can just pay the hospital directly, or will we need to have insurance already months before the due date? Thanks all

Dave, many thousands of children are safely born in Buenos Aires each year so don't worry too much. But hospitals do vary enormously in quality and convenience in Buenos Aires so I would definitely recommend you to take out private medical insurance.

Paying just for the birth is an option is some hospitals and the prices are reasonable but if there are any complications then your bill will quickly increase so insurance is probably the best bet. Actually in Argentina, it is more common to get a Plan de Salud directly with one of the hospitals rather than with an independent insurance company.

Phone around some of the hospitals to find out the best deal for your particular circumstances.
