    If coming to a public hospital you'd be looking at
    $300+ per antenatal appointment,
    $1500+ a night for a bed in the hospital - could get expensive quickly if you need to be admitted for a period of time for medical complications
    $1500+ if you need the operating theatre
    $1000+ a night for your baby if it needs the special care nursery
    Probably around $500-$1000 for routine blood tests and ultrasounds - if you need more ultrasounds it will cost a lot more.

    Private hospital would be similar plus your obstetrician, paediatrician, anaethetist fees.
    Our local hospital quoted my friend $10,000 just for a Caesar.

    Most health funds pay a private hospital around $9000 for an uncomplicated natural delivery. If you end up with an ICU stay you can expect anything up to and around $20 000 considering if you're in ICU your bub needs to go to the nursery.

    Do u have priv health? Or u r here as a visitor?

    As mentioned above, the baby won't get the citizenship just because he or she is born here. US and few other countries are a bit different. EU passport is a golden pass and a lot of people actually want that.

    Contact the Australian high commission in your country and ask about the options available to you in terms of migration and citizenship.

    In Spain it's called the embassy or consulate.

    High commission is only commonwealth countries
