And then there were three

Annyong!

So, most of you already know, but we figured it was time to post on Kimchi and Cornbread that we will soon be adding a little addition to our little family. And no, it’s not another fish!

We are expecting a baby the first week of January! He/she will be born in Korea. And we are so excited!

We plan to share our experience with you, and hopefully this blog can also be a resource for other foreign women in Korea who want to do the same thing.

So far, it’s been great. As we enter the second trimester, we are happy to have a doctor who speaks English (fairly well); healthy ultrasounds once a month (that’s how they do it in Korea); and a price so cheap compared to American standards I shouldn’t even post it. Just last week, we got a government issued card for all pregnant women in Korea that will literally pay for the next 3 to 4 months of prenatal care. This is because of Korea’s low birth rate, one of the lowest in the world. The government is offering more and more discounts and tax breaks to families in Korea who have children.

To answer any of your questions, yes! We will have this baby in Korea! Yes, our doctor is great! And yes, we are so excited!

We thank you all for your support across the globe! We’ll keep you updated!

    Congrats! I had my daughter in Korea and it was a very positive experience. And, of course, having/raising a child has been the best experience of my life.

    Best to all three of you!

  4. Congratulations! Is your doctor in the Gwangju area. My husband and I were wondering where you went for treatment. Although we dont have any plans to get pregnant while in Korea, it is a nice comfort to know how easy it seems to be going for you. There is always that chance. 🙂
