I just enrolled into UQ Masters degree and my wife and I were planning to move there in this coming January. But then we found out that we are expecting a baby. Of course, I will have Overseas Student Health Cover which will cover my wife was well but there is 12 months waiting period for pregnancy related services and she will deliver the baby way before that. We've never been to Australia before, so searched online and couldn't find any health insurance providers that doesn't require 12 month waiting period. We are not eligible for medicare. In short, we are probably going to deliver the baby without any insurance at all. What do we do here? What is the cost of delivering a baby without any insurance in Brisbane, Australia? What is the safest way to deliver the baby with a reasonable cost?
thank you all
