Hi there. I'm down in Lunigiana in Massa Carrara. First DS is 6, born here, and expecting 2nd in about 4 weeks! All went well 1st time, in fact I'd say the medical care here is more attentive than the UK but does fall down a bit after - pretty much no assistance with BF or anything else. And don't even think of a health visitor coming to see you at home! But medical care can depend a lot on where you are so no idea what Bergamo's like. No expert at all but give me a shout if you're stuck - getting your head round the bureaucracy of everything here is by far the worst bit!
Hello ExpaMamaToBe, Hope you are still checking your thread here and there Im in Pavia, and we moved here in October from the UK. We have 2 girls who will be 4 and 1 next month. had both of my girls in the UK, but my sister in Law had her boys here in Milan and it went all fine. When are you due?
