Healthcare Advice and Birthing Hospitals?

by Ciara

Hi everyone

We've recently moved to Marbella and I really need to sort out healthcare for us all.
Myself and my husband both work for ourselves so are not employed by a Spanish employer or paying into the Spanish system.
My question is mainly around - if and when-I give birth to our second child. I had a complicated birth with my first which resulted in emergency c section. If back in the UK I have the option to have an elective c section and want to know if this is an option here? And if so is there an insurance provider best for this?
Also, I have heard very good things about Costa Del Sol hospital, particularly for these kind of births.
I was looking at Healthcare and have been told about DKV, however I believe you have to go to Qiueron through them to give birth?
I'm a bit confused as would I be better to get DKV for the basics from the insurance and then when it comes to it - would I be entitled to a section at CDS because we live here?
Or is there another provider- such as Sanitas - that could give us better options?
Sorry for all the questions and thanks very much in advance!!
