    Parks in Doha

    One of the best things about living in Doha is the fact that there are a number of places where the family can hang out! And I don’t mean the malls and indoor play areas, but actual outdoor spaces! If you can find a way to beat the heat, you can definitely have a gala time playing with the kiddies at these many outdoor parks! This is my list of parks in Doha! Parks in Doha – Sheraton Hotel Park Now this is one of my favourites to be honest. Come on, what is not to like? A run through fountain for the kiddies, plenty of green space to chill…

So we looked into the process of transferring sponsorship from employer to husband in Doha, and it was fairly straightforward (once I was able to gather the info).

    Baby Rooms in Doha

    When you start going out with an infant, one question that constantly nags you is what would you if you had to change his diaper, or even worse, if it a poopy explosion and you need to change his clothes too (hopefully not yours as well). Baby rooms in Doha! Tadaa! The solution to all of our problems. A baby room is also very important for women who are not comfortable to breast feed in public – with or without a cover. Personally, I prefer a baby room, which allow both mom and dad, to go into but that isn’t always an option. Yet. But I do think change is…

    Cord Blood Banking in Qatar

    The umbilical cord is an incredible organ – it is the reason for your baby’s sustenance while they are inside you. From oxygen to “food”, it is the cord that provides everything that your baby needs from the moment he is conceived to the time he is out in the world. And the magic doesn’t end there. Cord blood banking is the process of collecting the blood from your newborn baby’s umbilical cord after it has been cut away and preserving it for 20 years or more.
