Nope, not after a Sydney couple owe a Canadian Hospital $1 million for their prem babies birth.
Personally no, I always have premi's but my main concern would be ... if i go to America (for example) & deliver there .. not only would it cost a fortune! ... And would be all completly different ... I would be concerned that I would have an American child and I would be worried about their visa and how long I would be stuck there...
It's not as simple as saying that all countries with a reciprocal agreement are ok (and there are only a few countries on that list by the way).
Hi Trishalishous, I wouldn't go - I would wait until your next scheduled trip when the bub has arrived safely. I've just decided to go to Melbourne for the weekend (from Adelaide) at 33 weeks. I think I will be pushing it just doing that and I am having a low risk pregnancy so far. Gran will understand. Maybe you can send a DVD message to her for her birthday.

I wouldn't. My concern wouldn't be the fact that the baby might come early, it'd be that if the baby DID come early, wouldn't that mean they were a citizen of the country they were born in, leading to a pain in the bum organising citizenship for them when you got home?
I don't know how these things work, but that'd be my paranoia lol.
I travelled overseas at 32 weeks with my doctor's permission for a 7 day holiday and it didn't worry me but I don't have a history of early labours and I have relatively easy pregnancies. In your situation- probably not.
I wouldn't either. Isn't there a cutoff from so many weeks where you aren't allowed to fly?
Pregnant for the first-time?
