    Default Maternity benefit for partner

    @JandM, what's the Maternity benefit for partner who has just enter in NZ with residence visa. Is it free?

    If needed cesarean section for child delivery or any other type of pre-maternity or post-maternity care?

    what about treatment of unforeseen pregnancy complication? Is it free?

    I know it's been a little while since this was posted, but I thought I would respond for future reference of others. I am married to a kiwi, but not on a resident visa. All of my maternity services have been covered so far. I do have to pay $30 for my ultrasounds, but that is all. All of my blood work is covered.

    Expect to rack up least $5 to $10 for folic acid, $15 for iodine, how about another $15 for prenatal vitamins and maybe a similar amount for some iron...

    PS: It would be considerably cheaper if you started before 1st of January.
