Pregnancy and birth in Sri Lanka? (Colombo)

Hi, my husband and I are planning to move to Bentota in a few months, and to start a family, however we are concerned about what the medical system is like there.

Does anyone have any advice on:

- whether to get private medical cover or not?
- whether there are good hospitals outside of Colombo (ie. close to Bentota)?
- is ante natal and post natal care of good quality?

We are wondering if it's better to stay in UK for pregnancy and birth?!

Thanks so much if you have any info to share :)
