    @nicole thanks dear am not going for the wic. The Emirates experience was nice but I advice u have your change of clothes n shower stuff in your hand luggage so you can shower while you await your connecting flight. Cos I did 3 hours there at the airport.  My experience with the hospital I went to yesterday wasn’t encouraging so am canceling my appointment cos they said I will be paying $300 per each dr’s visit n the entire cost will be revealed close to delivery period. So I don’t even have an idea what am going for , so my friend in California advised I search on google for obgyn around me n make my enquiries by calling them n then make my choice. Am still open for ideas from anyone in the house on this issue, am in brockton to be precise. Thanks

    Congratulations @oye1  God bless her richly…

     

    @jasmine great tip!!! No matter how it is “doing” you oh Ambulance is a no no, $1k is even good, i have heard more. My friend suffered this, because she went in as emergency, do you know her plan with the hospital was thrown out the window? They billed her completely different from what was agreed. Lots of letters, calls and negotiations she ended up paying about 12k from 20k initial. Meanwhile her original plan with the hospital was about 5-7k.

    @emeka Great stuff!! We bless God for favour, so glad all went smoothly. Wishing you easy delivery.  As they say, the POE is the real determinant and not the visa. Good you were open with them to avoid any confusion. I pray for favour for all the other mummies, May you all encounter people who will favour you…. :angel:

    Can you imagine? This is what I’m trying to avoid by using agents though sometimes there are hidden charges they don’t tell you about till you get to the hospital. Paying over 100k naira for each appointment!! Please google other options I’m praying you get a deal.

    Tie ( @emeka ), thanks for the advise hun. I just have to weigh this Emirates vs Air France thing in better detail :scratch: . And please, look for another hospital fast. That is way too much for appointments. Kilode! I’ll also be on the lookout for you.

     

    Bos ( @bosa ), I would have just fainted if I was your friend. From 5-7k to 20k  :argh: . Mehn, na to pray that one has no need for their ambulance true true. And AMEN to your prayers hun  :heart:

     

    Amber ( @beautifulameera ) as long as it doesn’t exceed 34 weeks, I think you’re fine to fly. I also hope to travel at about 32 weeks  :yes:

    @xtie same as NC! Damn too expensive. Cheapest Ticket in dec alone is 757k. It’s frustrating. LA is what range for hospitals?

    Tie ( @emeka ) whaaaaat?! That’s way too expensive. But I think those are the typical prices around that area. I know even Maryland has similar rates. L.A will be way better for you. But chai! So you will now enter plane again! Sending you hugs hun  :hugs:

    Bee247 ( @bee247 ), L.A. prices are the 4 – 6k range.
