My wife had a baby this year and as a private patient, the costs we incurred
were:

Initial consultation (about $100)partially refunded by medicare
Ultrasounds (3 x about $150) partially refunded by medicare
Visits to OB (lots x about $30) fully refunded by medicare
Insurance excess $500
Administrative fee to OB to cover his spiralling indemnity insurance $600
(ouch)

If you have insurance overseas some insurers will count that to your waiting
periods. Still, for out-of-pocket, I thought
the costs were very reasonable.Pre-natal checks were $40 NZD, I didn't pay for labwork, and
ultrasounds were $120 NZD. Do medicare benefits cover some of these costs?

Hmm.

I was told that a normal delivery would cost around $1500 NZD.

Thanks for the info.

Funny thing was how apologetic they were that I had to pay for the
ultrasounds!They kept asking me if it was okay to charge me.Can anybody enlighten me on how much will it cost for pregnancy related expenses(Pre and Ante natal checks, hospitalization etc) in Oz for a PR under 2 year wait period.
In the US, routine ultrasounds are like $200 or more (probably more,
actually).

Good luck
That's really useful info. Were you in the two year waiting period then?
