Hiya!
Just wanting advice on some travel tips that you could give me. My work has decided to extend to my contract to the end of February (I plan to move to Australia straight after) and I am not due until mid May. My partner lives in Melbourne, Australia and I am currently living in Wellington, New Zealand. Will it be much too stressful and too late for me to travel and find a doctor in time?
Its weird for me to do this on my own what with my partner and mother both living overseas.

Any advice is good advice. Thank you

Do you have medical insurance? What nationality are you?

I am a New Zealand Citizen. I have been planning on moving to Australia to my partner but I’m a little worried about settling in 3 months before baby is due

If your partner has a house sorted out, you should be fine. But do you have to have a visa or anything to live in Oz if you're from NZ?

No visa is necessary for NZ citizens to live/work in Australia.
I don't think it's too late to find a doctor, research birth options etc. Assuming everything else is sorted, house etc you can focus on preparing for the baby.
