Uncle even if all of you have United nations passport you can be deported. Infact I smell issues for you either at the POE or Embassy.

Forget all these story, if I were you I will make a singe trip to the US and find a way to repay that medicaid. Try and clear that bill before your wife travels. I am interested in the outcome.

If you travel with the child to the US, its most likely going to raise a flag and you'd have to answer questions concerning circumstances around the childs delivery vis-a-vis payments.

After struggling to find decent accommodation in Cunming Georgia, and reading some horrible reviews of the few extended stay hotels I found that were closest to my hospital ( Northside hospital - forsyth campus) I also couldn't get an apartment for lease cos the minimum lease term was 6months with strict cancelation rules and I only needed three months!!!

I have now found one in Alpharetta Georgia via www.airbnb.com at $697 per month cheesy very fantastic in my opinion, anyone who doesn't have close family can try the site as well as other extended stay hotels that have fair reviews - not the type that has drug dealers etc

just thot to share

xxwxx

How far is this place from the hospital?

Tvegas baba. How is family.
In US embassy, U hold ur passport with you until u re called now or u turn to be interviewed.

The system's obviously changed. Before now, your docs are distributed amongst the VOs in a random fashion.

My dear pple, good eve....

Pls is it safe for a 40weeks gone lady to be induced for labour?

Are there any adverse effect one should be wary of?

Kindly help.

Thanks

Well, if that's the recommendation of the obstetrician, then I advice you follow it. A pregnancy that's upto 41 + 3 days is post date and usually the obstetrician would induce labor. It is only if this doesn't progress well or there are other indications that a cesarean section is carried out.
At 40 wks e obstetrician may not feel comfy with the pregnancy progressing beyond that date especially because of the baby.

Hi all,

I am in the process of booking an appointment with MIHS for my wife and was advised to contact one of the clinics listed on the maternity package plan agreement sent to me. Please can someone advise on which of these clinics is closest to Legacy suites? Also, is this where the delivery will be taken?

Thanks

Hello house,
In the spirit of giving back. Here is my birth story.
I gave birth to my baby girl March 17th at United memorial medical center, batavia New York through C.S. Stayed in the hospital 3 days for all. The hospital offers a 60% automatic dscount for self pay. Got my bill for 3947.69 for mother and 1407 for the child, total of 5354. Doctor's fee for ante natal and delivery was 1499.4 (I was scheduled for natural delivery with a mid wife but had to go for c-section last minute, which included a doctor in the package. The fee above also include all the meal I had for 3 days. The service was awesome, everyone including the doctor's were very friendly, nice and professional.
I let them know before I delivered that I was going back to Naija in less than a month after delivery so they could process my birth cert and bills on time.
I filled the birth cert form before I gave birth and gave them baby's name on delivery. They filled for the cert on friday, I called the county's office on Tuesday and I was told it was mailed to me the monday after that friday. I guess they used regular mail cos I didn't get it that week, went to their office the following Monday, paid 10$ for another copy which I usedto apply for her passport. I paid 165$ for the passport and got it sameday. I mailed her passport to the agent for the Naija visa for 342$ (Tanko hardly picked his calls, felt safer using a company's service). They got the passport Tuesday Morning, got the visa same day and mailed it back to me. I got the passport the next day Wednesday. I have gotten my zero balance letter from the hospital. Leaving for Naija today.
Hope this helps someone.

Please one question. The zero balance letter is just a line. Hope this is okay.
Good luck to everyone

Hi guys,

Please i need someone who lives/has lived in Oslo to recommend a reliable telecoms network i can buy during my 8 week stay in Oslo. I would want a balance of effectiveness/reliability (calls and data/internet) as well as affordability.

Hi Congrats on your safe delivery.

Which campus of the Northside hospital did you use and which OBGYN?
Could you please give an idea of what your charges eventually came to including pediatrician. And since you stayed just one day, did this bring down your bills. Were there any hidden charges?

Thanks

I am interested in doing a msc in hydropower management and i emailed them. I have 2.80 and the cordinator sd I am qualified with my grades and courses taken. I also also asked about the english language requirement and here is his response

Dear Mr xxxxxxxx,

According to the language requirements (https://www.ntnu.edu/studies/langcourses/languagerequirements), it seems that you are eligible for an exemption from the language documentation requirements.

Best regards,

Hanne


With this, is it advisable to ignore the english language exam?

Thanks


Yes I believe you are. As a Nigerian, as long as you passed english in your SSCE, you do not require any other evidence of English language. Except you ve got extra funds and you think including an IELTS result with improve your chances.

If you are thinking of going the Phoenix route, MIHS (Maricopa Intergrated Health Service) seem to be your best bet for now.Google them and check out their self pay deals for pregnant women and also check out budget spread sheet posted by Phema and some other people on this thread.. I guess with that,you are good to go

@dere5 thanks.

Hi all,

I am new to this thread but I believe I will be able to get some vital information from you all.

I will be attending a fully paid course in Norway in June and am in the process of applying for a visa. I however have a few concerns
1. The authority inviting me is arranging basic insurance for me form over there (a group insurance). DO I STILL NEED TO GET INSURANCE FROM HERE?
2. My return ticket will also be paid for. MUST I PUT A PAID TICKET OR CAN I USE A DUMMY PENDING VISA ISSUANCE?

I look forward to hearing from y'all.

Hello people! I'm back to share my little piece after the delivery of my baby at Northside hospital atlanta. Everything went smooth thankful to God. I was able to get the birth certificate with 5 days after which I made an appointment at the pAssport agency and guess what! We got the passport same day because the date I booked for my return to Nigeria was just a week from the day we had the appointment( planned on shifting the date depending on the number of days the passport will take). Requested the SSN at the time of filling the form for the bc and also got it in the mail about 5 working days after we collected the bc( it said on the form that it takes up to 5 weeks for it to be out), we also applied for a Nigerian passport at the consulate and got it in 3 days. All in all it took less than two weeks to get everything. Thanks be to Almighty God for it could be a totally different story. If anybody is considering atlanta and has questions, do send an email and I will try my best to response! P.s also got my zero balance from the hospital and even a refund of $255 from the hospital as my bill didn't reach the estimate they gave before I made the down payment which qualifies me for the discount they give to self pay patients.


Hi. Congrats on your safe delivery. I am also considering Northside for my wife. Infact we have an appointment for sometime in may. Could you please share some of ur experience with the hospital as well as the total fees you paid.

Hi All,

I have been following this thread quietly for a while now because i desire that my wife delivers our baby in the US. I am presently considering Atlanta for logistic reasons but also considering cost. It appears a couple of people are heading towards phoenix.

Can someone please spell out the likely cost implications of having a baby (VAGINAL AND CAESAREAN PLEASE) in phoenix from registration to delivery.

Dear All, I am hoping someone will be willing to help me with a few concerns. I desire that my wife has our baby in the US and intend she applies for a visa that along with my daughter applies for a visa to within the next 2 wks. I already have a visa but i would like to attend the interview with them so i am thinking:
1. Should i make a joint application for them (i.e my daughter and wife)? If I do, will i be allowed to go in with them on the premise that i want to assist my wife in baby sitting the little girl considering my wife's state?

OR

2. Should I just make separate applications and then book them on same interview date. That way I get to go in with my daughter. But will it still be possible to attend the interview together as a family this way. Recall that I already have a visa, just intend to attend the interview with my family.
