Pregnancy If Your Pregnancy Isn’t Causing Any Issues 15 Minutes Should be fine, but if you have any questions or concerns, it will take about 30 minutes. They are in charge of their own schedule. Midwives are also licensed to give you a blood form request and an ultrasound if you have a lot of patients. Request a blood test every trimester to see if you have enough electrolytes and bloods, such as iron and folic acid, so you can figure out what vitamin supplements to take for your and your baby’s health. As I previously stated, blood tests are free, but ultrasounds are not. Not for free; you must pay $30 NZD per ultrasound, which is less than the usual fee of $200 NZD if you want to do it privately. The scan will take place once every trimester or as needed in my case, from day one until the end of the pregnancy.
Now that I’m 30 weeks pregnant, I’ve already had four scans. The first was to determine the gestational age of my baby. I forgot the last day of my last menstruation, so I had my first scan to determine the age of my baby inside my tummy. The second scan was my 12-week scan to determine any abnormalities or defects, such as Down syndrome. The third scan was my 22-week scan to determine the gender of my baby.

You and your midwife will talk about your birthing plan. You have the option of giving birth in a hospital or a birthing center. Midwives usually recommend giving birth in a birthing center because the atmosphere is much more relaxing. In comparison to the hospital, it is relaxing, not stressful, and not busy; however, my friends advised that it is better, based on their experiences, especially since I am a first-time mother. To Give Birth In A Hospital Because You Will Not Know What Will Happen During Your Delivery Process, You Will Not Be Able To Avoid Complications Such As Cord Coil, Bleeding The Birthing Center Doesn’t Have An Operating Room, And Surgeons Are The Only Ones Licensed To Perform Cs Midwives Don’t Do Cs, Of Course, So It’s Very Scary Because What If The Baby Has Trauma, You Need To Be Transported To The Hospital- It Takes Time For The Safety, I’ll Give Birth In The Hospital, If I Have A Normal Delivery, They Need To Discharge Me
Within 24 hours in New Zealand, after giving birth, simply rest for a few hours. They want you to keep moving, such as walking, for a faster recovery, but if complications arise, you will be admitted to the hospital for 48 to 72 hours. Both the birthing center and the hospital are free, even if you have a complicated case requiring Caesarian section, blood transfusion, or other medical procedures. You will not be charged for it. Except for medications given at the time of discharge, such as paracetamol, pain relievers, or antibiotics, those medications will not be given. If you are working, you are entitled to a six-month leave or more, depending on your company, and then you will receive a maximum of 585 NZD before tax from the government as your weekly allowance if you have taken maternity leave. If you have a high salary, the government will pay you 585 NZD per week, but if you have a minimum wage, you will be paid 177 NZD per week. I’m not sure; I’ll have to look into it. Take note that the government will deduct tax from your weekly allowance. The government will start giving you the allowance from the day you give birth up to 26 weeks, or almost six months, but after that, you won’t get anything, so you’ll have to work. Return to work to provide income for your family. In my case, I work for Dhb and have benefits as a Dhb employee in addition to the benefits provided by the government. To take up to a year of maternity leave with the assurance that you will still have a job after that time. Apart from that, I have to take care of my baby. Benefit Is That I Will Continue To Receive My Salary For 14 Weeks (Three And A Half Months) It Will Begin On The Day Of Your Maternity Leave, As In My Case, My Due Date Will Be July 20, But Because I'm Planning To Go On Leave June 20, They Will Pay Me From June 20 To The Second Week Of October I'm Rich In The First 3 Months Because I'm Planning To Go On Leave June 20 They Will Pay Me From June I’m getting my full from the Dhb and my weekly support from the government at the same time, but after three months and a half, only the government will support me until January 2021, when I return to work after maternity leave.
