Hi lovely mamas!
My family of five (soon to be 6) is planning a move from the US to Costa Rica at some point this year. We are debating a couple things...one is whether to go before our baby is born or not (Hubby has read that we will have to leave every 90 days, for 3 days, on our tourist visa...but that if our babe is born there, we can all become residents.) Does anyone know if this is true? We are due in early September of this year, 2014.
And if we do go before baby comes...is the best option for home birth care the midwives of MamaSol near San Jose/Central Valley?
Through reading, we had been interested in living near Nosara on the Pacific Coast but will ofcourse go where the homebirth midwifery options are best...and then move to where we want to be permenantly after baby is born.
I will say though, as a doula/home birth assistant here in the States...the Central Valley is looking more and more appealing with what seems to be a vibrant birth community. :) So maybe that's where we'll end up? I would love to be surrounded by a like minded community like I am here.
We currently have three young children (twin b/g 4 y.o's and a 2 y.o. boy) and just really need reliable internet access nearby for my husband to continue his work.
Any input into some great communities that are expat and homebirth friendly are greatly appreciated! Many thanks and blessings.
I live in costa for several years but had my child here in the states . One thing fur sure, internet is pretty much unreliable anywhere except in the larger cities.
Btw what is a bigger coastal town? They are all pretty small I guess to me.
How exciting to be moving though. You can run stuff pass me and if I have experience or advice I will give it if you want. Food , weather everything is great about this country!!
