I also had a positive birth at Grasse hospital. A lot more natural than most of the horror stories you hear about in France.

There is also an English lady advertising here http://riviera.angloinfo.com/business-directory/listing/10473/breast-start.html that does breastfeeding workshops and gives support.

I went to an english ante natal/birth preparation class, in Antibes. It was run by an english midwife it was really very useful and friendly and my 'class' have stayed in touch, as our babies are all pretty much the same age.  I have posted the facebook page link here   if it doesnt work, try this

Hi, I'm a first time mum and I gave birth in November to my twin boys in Grasse Hospital, well, I had a C-section due to complications. My experience was really good considering my French is appalling! Everyone was lovely and we got by with dodgy English and dodgy French! I had to stay in for two weeks as there were problems with the boys, but they really looked after me. My Dr was also in Grasse hospital so all my details were already there, and he speaks English. Please email me if you"d loke his details or want to know more. x

I have given birth twice in Monaco (April 2009 and November 2010).   The care was great, if not a little over the top but I am quite experienced at this as I had two children already?!  I managed completely natural births with no drugs or intervention, which I believe is quite difficult to achieve here!  The Midwives who were in the delivery room both times were fantastic and completely respected my natural way of birthing.  I don't speak any French but this did not cause any problems during the birth. There is a great English speaking Midwife who I went to see at the hospital before the birth who explained the 'French way!' and then she came to see me at home after I had my baby.   I am more than than happy to discuss further with you if this information is helpful to you.

Hi, I've given birth at the hospital in Grasse a bit more than one year ago. Overall a good experience. They have now a new maternity building, so it should even be better I guess. If you like some more info you can always email me: laurent_06@hotmail.com.
