Giving birth in Brasil with no resident visa (Rio de Janeiro)

Hi everyone,

I would like to ask if you have any information on the possibility to give birth in Brasil if you don't have any resident visa.
My husband and I are moving to Belo Horizonte in 10 days and I am pregnant in the 6th week. My husband is Peruvian and got already his temporal resident visa for 2 years. I am not able to get a residential visa at this point. I was told by the Brazilian embassy in Lima that I am unable to give birth in Brasil if I am not a resident. This is really frustrating as we plan to be in Brasil when the baby comes. Any recomendations or advices? I will be entering as a tourist.

Thank you.

best wishes,
