    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.

    Gee I'm sorry you have been on the end of a lot of negativity, and I hope all the information you have just got has helped to lay your mind at rest. I know very well the feeling of being in a new country with no family support, being pregnant, and trying to negotiate an unfamiliar system, especially when you are getting conflicting information!

    Take care, and all the best with your pregnancy, and settling into Oz.
