Argentina is famous for its prenatal care and warm attitude towards pregnant women and children. State hospitals do not charge even expats who want to get Argentine citizenship for their baby. But the good impression of cheap services may be darkened by poor conditions. Most hospitals are in old buildings with tiny laboring rooms and long lines of patients. Hospitals in Chile look much nicer and are fully-equipped with the latest technologies. Moreover, here you can find an English-speaking doctor unlike in Argentina where the medical staff mostly speaks only Spanish.
