Given I had my baby at 6 months pregnant, I would not recommend travel overseas at that stage. But then my case was pretty extreme and doesn't happen that often. (though I was perfectly fine up until 23 weeks)
There have been a few highly publicised cases recently of premature babies born overseas and the high medical costs involved.
I would just check out the insurance aspect. Fiji isn't far from Australia, so that's a positive.
i had a 24 weeker, although i was on bed rest before hand so unable to travel
yes fiji is a short flight, BUT
your insurer will cover YOU for flights etc but what if you go into pre term labour?
they will not cover your baby!!!
so, i had 4 months in nicu - are you able to afford the hospital bill? your accommodation?
flights with a nurse - when bubs is old enough to travel
i would travel interstae but not overseas
but as the saying goes, your body your life your choice
