IS THIS TRULY FOR REAL?


A new development: Irrespective of whether you have a UK visa or not, yourself and Biodun1234 if you decide to can actually go into the UK for a period less than 48hrs because your layover is more than 12hrs and you have an onward ticket to show alongside either your US, Canada, New Zealand or Australia visa. Just explain yourself appropriately and use the opportunity to see the UK.... Entry isn't 100% guaranteed though, but hardly will you be turned down.

Mount Sinai Hospital. There are several "branches" depending on your exact location in NYC, its similar to what Houston Methodist have in Houston; different hospitals for different locations within Houston.

Hi Biodun,

I dont think you need to renew, I stand to be corrected please.
I had same experience in 2015, I was advised by someone on the platform (Tvegas, cant remember the name).
I traveled to have my baby in Sept. and visa was due to expire Nov..
I returned to the country Dec. 20 precisely and i renewed my visa in February 2016 via drop box. I was granted the visa without any interview.
I hope this helps your thought process.

Wish you the best of luck.

Biodun1234:
Thanks mamaron and jullzz for your response. Am so grateful. I Will stay At The general area at Heathrow.

My visa is expiring in February 29 and I intend to travel January 30th for my missionary journey. I do not plan to renew my visa until after delivery when I return back to Nigeria. Kindly advice as i am of the view that I do not have to renew my visa now since my visa would still be valid as at the date of entry into US in January 30

Congrats!
I must commend you for your support,because if you had discouraged her after the 2nd refusal,she would have given up,you were her main source of encouragement.Your story shows that determination and perseverance pays.

I agree. Husbands stand by your wives. Lesson number 1

Thanks for this info pls does this Oakbend quote include all scan and lab tests pls.
Springdance:
So I got this quote from oakbend in November but when I heard they will be reviewing their price upward, I decided to check for other options, mamas in Houston, pls what is the reviewed price looking like?

This was the quote from oakbend

Vaginal- 2750
C-section - 3950
Anesthesiology 1200
Pediatrician - 350-800

Dr affiliated with oakbend
Vaginal- 2300, can be discounted to 1850
C- section 2800 can be discounted to 2400

I searched around and the cheapest I got was memorial hermann southeast hospital but lab was not included. Pls has any mama in the house used memorial hermann southeast hospital, what did the lab fee come to. This was what was sent to me

Quote from memorial, the only clause is to be eligible for this package you must pay the hospital latest by 7months of pregnancy.
Vaginal - 3000
C-section or VBAC 4500
Anesthesiology for vaginal 800
Anesthesiology for c-section 560
Pediatrician 150-200

Dr affiliated to memorial
Vaginal 2100 can be discounted to 1800
C-section 2600 can be discounted to 2400
VBAC 3500 can be discounted to 3300

Please once again if anyone has used Memorial Hermann Southeast hospital, what did the lab come to. Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone, i need your candid advise, i got my visa sept.05, took in towards 3rd week of Oct. Now i am 15wks gone. I and DH had wanted to spend xmass there but his brother made us cancel it when he informed us that he will be returning to Naija for xmass though he never returned afterwards.
Can i use the visa for child birthing as i wasn't pregnant when i went for interview and can prove it?
If it is possible, what and what do i need to put on ground before embarking on the journey?
EDD is June 20, 2018
Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by Zeemin3: 3:33am On Jan 06, 2018
Please house, is a third c section considered "high risk"?. I had thought so,however all the emails sent out to different doctors, after sharing my medical history,none has called it "high risk". I just need to know so I can include in my budget. Thank u

Are you saying that you originally applied for a tourism visa and decided to use it for birthing now? If that's the case,you have plenty work o. Since this is a do it yourself forum,I'll advice you to get a jotter and start reading, taking notes and making calls. Come clean at the interview by telling them your original intention,go prepared with Dr&hospital correspondence,budget sheet,bank statement to cover cost etc.
Worse case scenario,you can go the Elapse route and pay dresparatti and get correspondence from them since you don't have much time left.
Good Luck!
I still don't have any intention of birthing there but someone advised me to have a contact with a doctor over there, as they may not believe me seeing my big stomach. That's why I need your advice as per doctor I can contact in case they ask. Thanks

If that's the case,I don't think you need to bother with Dr correspondence since you don't plan to give birth there, after all it's not all pregnant women that travelling to America that plan to birth there. Just tell them the truth that you are pregnant and you are going on vacation and that you don't plan to give birth there. Once you make your intentions known,I don't think that they would ask for Drs correspondence,cause it won't serve any purpose then.I think you'll be fine.

Some states don't accept just any notary public,for those states it must be done at the US embassy.

It excludes lab, I reckon you will need to pay for additional lab test done by the doctor and hospital.

Good morning and a happy weekend to everyone one. Just to confirm if *hospitals correspondence* & *doctors correspondence* serve the same purpose at Interview because I have that of hospital. So thinking I request for a doctor's correspondence before proceeding to the interview. Thanks
