    Default Travel Insurance while pregnant with the help of IVF

    Hi everyone,

    Hubby has decided to take me to Bali when I am about 20 weeks (after the 19 week scan so I can shop for bubs) for a relaxing getaway with a few mocktails by the pool.
    I was looking into travel insurance and it turns out a lot of insurers will not cover you if you fell pregnant through IVF.
    There are some that will for an additional charge but I just thought I would put it out there and see if anyone has any recommendations?

    Thanks for your help

    I think I've read before that covermore is good for this. Not 100% sure though. It's so silly IMO, it's not like a pregnancy conceived via IVF is any different to a "normal" conception - once the baby's in there and growing, it's all the same!

    I ended up calling aussietravelcover as that is who we usually go through, our travel agent have us a quote reference number to quote...they did a medical assessment (1 question to make sure it was only a single pregnancy) then told me I was approved with no extra premium and they are forwarding the outcome to our travel agent.
    I can't believe how different they all are
