You can research the hospitals before you go and take the phone numbers with you, especially the number to call for an ambulance if needed. Each hospital has their own number for ambulances. In Thailand if a local person calls an ambulance for you, you will probably end up at the government hospital which is to be avoided if possible. If you are researching - in Phuket the best hospital if Bangkok Phuket Hospital. Western standard international hospital, doctors speak English and so do many of the nurses and admin clerks. They also have a specialist section that deals with insurance companies.
    Thanks I didn't think about researching hospitals!! I will be in Bangkok for a few days and then on Koh Tao. Going to get my insurance sorted this week

    Re the insurance : read the fine print because almost all of them normally exclude a pre existing condition, pregnancy is usually classed as this. Also clarify the policy covers not only your health expenses but also that of the baby if, worst case scenario, you give birth to a prem or something and they are in NICU or need some treatment.
    Don't mean to make you paranoid!!! just working in insurance for many years its something I would think about for myself.
    I'm sure all will be fine and you can really relax and enjoy your holiday!
    Have fun xxxx
