    I am by no means an expert, but from what I know from my patients, if you have absolutely no access to Medicare you will be charged for services, even if in a public hospital.

    I truely hope I am wrong and someone can provide more accurate info!!

    Good luck!

    I think that might be fore the most complicated of deliveries, ie: Caesarean section.

    I read somewhere that for a straight forward birth you could be looking at around $4000.

    Your hospital will be able to give you a breakdown of costs. Just ask your caregivers.

    Your posts would probably be easier to read and get more responses if you used plain English rather than text speak. Just Sayin' and trying to help!

    Birthing at home with a private midwife may be more cost effective.
