Pregnancy & Birth in Cyprus

When I found out I was pregnant I realised that there is very little information on the internet about pregnancy and birth in Cyprus, there are a few websites with a little bit of 'what to do' info but it's mainly directed at giving birth in a private clinic and usually just a few comments on a forum - never an actual birth story.

I will be sharing my story and experience as I go, hopefully someone in the same situation might find it helpful and interesting.

I also asked other women in Cyprus to share their experiences, good and bad, in both private and general hospitals.  I wanted to collect them together in the hope they might also be interesting or helpful for others in the same situation.
