Hi

Yes- another one here who has switched later on. Luckily my insurance is paying the hospital fees for "delivery only" so I switched to Keith Duncan from
About 32 weeks on his delivery only package. Baby not due for a bit but so far very happy- he scans you himself at every appointment which is reassuring.

I only rang up to enquire at about 25 weeks so I was amazed to be able to get Mr Duncan as he is so popular but there was no problem (possibly not a popular time of year for babies compared to Sept/Oct?). Do your research on which consultant you would like as their specialities and costs do vary quite a lot.

It has been very easy to combine the NHS provision with late term private care.

Xx

I think it is rare for insurance to cover (unless your work gives ygives you a swanky is-style package) but worth checking! Mine is covered as I have to have a csection due to previous csections. I was amazed when they told me I would be covered if I had another child when I called up a few years ago to add my last child to the policy! It would have never crossed my mind!

Excesses and consultant fees still add up even with insurance and late switch over though- I'm not expecting much change from about £6k.

That said, it seems to be the delivery fees for the hospital that are the biggest chunk at about £10k all in for a csection. Very nice to be covered for that as wouldn't have been an option orherwise
