Healthcare in Rome for Families with Kids | MumAbroad

   

Healthcare Rome

International families have excellent access to healthcare in Rome. The city has several excellent state-run health clinics and hospitals including the highly regarded general hospital on the Isola Tiberina in the heart of Rome.    

 

For those with health insurance, reputable private clinics in Lazio, Prati and other neighbourhoods offer maternity services in Rome, with some specialising exclusively in gynaecology and obstetrics or fertility treatments.

 

English-speaking doctors, gynaecologists, midwives and other healthcare professionals provide extensive pre and post natal support to prepare parents for labour, contributing to a positive birth experience when having a baby far from home. 

 

Most hospitals in Rome run antenatal courses for mums to be and some host monthly events covering different aspects of childbirth and newborn care. There are several English-speaking non-profit organisations specifically tailored for expat parents having a baby in Rome, offering information and support for mothers and new parents. 

 

From English-speaking doctors in Rome to finding a paediatrician or alternative therapist near you, this is the Mumabroad.com guide to healthcare services in the region, as recommended by families in the local area. If you have a recommendation for this section please get in touch via email info@mumabroad.com
