I am in desperate need of advice and hoping someone can help.
I am 28 weeks pregnant with my first and have no health insurance.
I am planning to go to the Royal Women's in Melbourne.
I have tried and tried since I found out I was pregnant to get my head around the idea of a vaginal birth but simply cannot do it.
I am not looking to start up the great debate of C section VS Natural birth.
I have done all the research and know that C section is in NO way the easy way out ect...
I went as far as to looking into going to a private hospital without any insurance and was told for a C section, OB, Hospital fees ect.. I would be looking between 10-15k and thats without any complications - Anything wrong with the baby and I was told it could cost us $1,000 a day for special care!
Anyway, I have had to book into the Royal Women's (Melbourne) As it is my closest hospital and the only one which would take me.
I am due to see the midwives there in a couple of weeks but have been told that in a Public Hospital without Insurance that no hospital will do an elective C section without a medical reason.
I cannot sleep, I am starting not to be able to eat. Every time someone asks me a question about the birth or I think about it I just cry and cry.
Does anyone know if this is ANY WAY possible? Has anyone been in the same situation?
I am just completely lost at what to do...
