    Default Travel insurance when pregnant

    I'm looking at going to NZ for a wedding when I'm 30-32 weeks pregnant.
    It doesn't look like the airline (emirates) will have an issue but travel insurance looks to be difficult.
    I havent come across any that will cover that late.
    Do you have any recommendations? Have I overlooked some thing?

    Are yourself or DH a kiwi? It would pay to look more into the reciprocal healthcare agreement as IF bub is born there and neither of you is a NZ citizen then bub will technically be a citizen of nowhere until you get Australian citizenship and generally wouldn't fall under the RHA. One cover does tend to cover a heck of a lot more than other PHI. Also, where are you traveling traveling to? Only Auckland Womens, Waikato, Wellington and Christchurch Womens can cater for a bub born that early. Anywhere rural or too far away from the main centres will require a chopper so you need to make sure that would be covered too.

    No neither of us are kiwis. Hubby's dad is but I'm assuming that has nothing to do with it.

    We would be going to Hastings/Napier.
    I'm just wondering now if it's worth me just staying home with DD and saving costs and worry etc.
    I'd be annoyed at having to miss another wedding though.

    I found this link and it says that the child of an eligible parent would be covered ;-) It would be best to contact the NZ Ministry of Health for clarification just to be sure.
