Understanding your hospital birth options
Public or private? Choosing where to have your baby is a big decision. Here's what you can expect from each one.
Choosing health insurance for pregnancy
We have designed a range of packages to give you all the support you will need during your pregnancy, birth and beyond.
How your extras cover can help during pregnancy
Pregnancy can put a lot of strain on your body. Here’s how your extras cover can help.
Shared maternity care
What is shared maternity care? And could it help you reduce the cost of having a baby in the private health system?
Adding a baby to your cover
Did you know that your health cover doesn’t automatically include your baby? This is important if your baby needs to be admitted to hospital as an inpatient.
Is it worth having private health insurance?
We look at how the private and public systems compare when it comes to some aspects of pregnancy and childbirth.
