* Delivering at Costa del Sol Hospital

One of our readers got some great advice when asking, ”Hi there, I wonder if anyone can tell me if I can pay privately for healthcare at the Costa del sol hospital? I'm pregnant, due in May. I'm not entitled to social healthcare and not covered under my private medical insurance. I have been paying privately for antenatal care but have heard that Costa Del sol hospital is the only hospital in the area which has a birthing pool. I would really like a pool birth. Can anyone help?”
