Some information about health- and child-care in Sweden:
Healthcare is free after a small fee in connection with the first visit to a doctor. The parental benefits in Sweden are very generous, e.g., you can take 13 months of parental leave and extend the length of your Ph.D. studies correspondingly. Childcare is of high quality and very affordable.
