When my daughter was born the doctors knew within seconds that she was struggling to feed properly, and within minutes knew that the reason was due to a cleft palate.
Being covered by Private Health Insurance gave us the peace of mind that we were going to be provided with that extra support, that we knew we would need. Just having our own private room was incredibly helpful. The nurses and doctors supported both my husband and myself, teaching and guiding us on how to feed our daughter with a special bottle.
We stayed in hospital for a week, and had different professionals come out to talk to us and offer us extra information regarding what our next steps were in providing the best care for our daughter. We felt extremely well equipped with supplies and information after leaving the hospital, and knew we could access extra support if needed.
Five years on, she’s doing extremely well, and now being pregnant again, we are beyond grateful that we still have Private Health Insurance to give us that extra peace of mind!
