my pregnant partner and I have a flight booked with airline (Ryanair) and they have asked for my pregnant partner, who will be 30 weeks on departure, 32 weeks on return, to provide a "Fit to Fly" declaration that is signed by a doctor or midwife. We have been informed that since 1st January 2015 midwives and doctors will no longer sign this form. How do we get this form authorised so that we can go on our holiday, which was booked before we became pregnant?

Hey, I have a quick question. I am moving to the Netherlands and I am 12 weeks pregnant. Will I be able to get insurance right away so I do not have to pay out of pocket, as that is expensive? Thanks

Hello, my husband and I are moving to the Netherlands next year. We are going to be trying for a baby, but, from what I understand, childbirth is way different in NL than in the US. I had to have a C-section with my first last year, and was wanting to see how I go about finding a Doctor/having another c-section. I want to make sure we can have a c-section, since that is what we had before. Just seeing what you do to go about this in NL. Thanks

Dear Chitra,
I will be coming to the Netherlands on a company project for 3-6 months or more.
I am planning to bring my wife who is now 27 weeks pregnant. I will be landing in the Netherlands by end of September by when my wife be around 31 weeks in to the pregnancy. I want to know can I apply for NHS or any medical insurance in the Netherlands which will cover the baby delivery expenses. Also I would like to know what are the cost of baby delivery in the Netherlands, in case I don't get NHS or a private insurance.
Thanks.

Hi, I am living in NL for 6 years and have a permenant residence permut. Now I am pregnant and I plan to give birth in my home country in Turkey. What should I consider to bring the baby back to NL? Is the babys passport enough for her to travel with me and enter to the NL? Do I need to apply to IND before bringing her back to NL?
Thanks for your answer!

Let me begin.. Here is the first question:) I want to know about sleeping positions. I am now in 6th month. I always have the habit of sleeping on my back. Very frequently i hear from people about sleeping sideways however I am unable to follow.. Is it necessary for a mom to be to sleep on her side?
