We are moving to Espoo in November from the UK and I will be 25 weeks pregnant then (the baby is due in February).
I am slightly worried at the prospect of giving birth in a foreign country surrounded by people who I wont be able to understand. This will be our first baby so I'm worried about the whole process generally.
I will get a 20 week scan here in the UK and then we will move, what is Finland like for scanning and pregnancy care? Any recommendations on hospitals etc. I hear Finland is the one of the coldest months, what should we bear in mind?
Any tips would be very welcome,

That's near Pasila in Helsinki.
What did you write in Finnish? I'm only chapter 4 of my 'Learn Finnish' book!
