By your side BCN, a one-stop shop for all things pre and post-birth related was founded by Amaia Jauregui, a native of Spain and her partner Kevin as a result of their own experiences – living abroad and starting a family. If you’re pregnant the team will help you find out the best options for your needs available in the city. They can give you information about hospitals, clinics, doctors, midwives, doulas, birthing options, prenatal and postnatal support groups and activities.
Once you have had your baby By your side BCN can continue to support you by helping you find the right medical assistance (paediatricians, gynaecologists, physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors), lactation consultants and sleep coaches. Contact them for support groups in your area and information on babysitters and daycare too.
“After our experience abroad, we decided it was time to come back home to Barcelona and settle down. It’s been 7 years since we moved back and we’re enjoying every minute of it. We started a family 3 years ago after several IVF treatments and a whole new world opened to us. The challenges we faced during pregnancy, birth and the early years of our child inspired us to create a service to help parents find the right support in Barcelona. We help international families find medical assistance and professional prenatal and postnatal care. We can advise on the variety of different birthing options on offer, and we can help find suitable daycare or nannies. We can also help with bureaucratic matters such as the paperwork required after birth amongst other things. Moving to a new country with a different language is a whole new adventure. If you add kids to the equation, it’s another story. Not knowing where to start or what services are available adds unnecessary stress and uncertainty.” Amaia
