IMO your better off having bub here. I'm due to have number 2 (first baby in Aus, first one was born in NZ) and I have noticed a huge difference. First of all the baby bonus YOU WILL GET is great, it's something we don't get in NZ so it's awesome to be offered a bonus like that! The maternity care I have received is much the same as what I received in NZ, in fact I like my current team of midwives a lot more than my NZ one :thumbup: clothing and baby needs (pram, car seat, bassinet etc) is so much cheaper and a lot more variety. The hospital I will be birthing at is 10 times nicer than my NZ one. The only downfall was the out of pocket expenses for my scans, all 3 of them costing around $130 after medicare benefit. Having said that I didn't "shop around" for a cheaper scan place.
