BEC Seminar: HAVING A BABY in Brno


Are you expecting or planning a baby? Congratulations!

Are you also wondering how will you – beside caring for the baby itself – handle the fact that it is all happening in a different country from your own, surrounded by a different language, a different healthcare system, social system, etc?

Are you wondering, where and in what conditions will you / your wife give birth in Brno? How much does your insurance cover? What paperwork to fill out? How often will you see a specialist? Will you / your wife be entitled to any financial support or benefits from the state? For how long can you stay away from your job? What is the meaning of RD, RP, PPM??

If all or any of these questions are circling in your head, our seminar hopes to answer and explain as much as time will allow, so that you can take all the events step by step and not loose your head even before the baby is born.

The seminar will focus on three key areas:

  • Medical issues (pregnancy, hospitals, possible human support)
  • Financial issues (health insurance, maternity and parental leave, financial support)
  • Legal issues (nationality, citizenship, birth registry, names, legal requirements regarding the stay in CR etc.)

The following speakers will attend and share their knowledge with you:


17.15 Registration; 17.30 Welcome & Introduction; 17.40 Panel presentations followed by Q&A from the audience
