    Hi, I am in perth, recently moved to australia with 489 visa. I am planning to get pregnant and give birth to a baby. but i heard as i am in 489 visa, i need to spent for medical on my own. do any one know cheap and best medical insurance provider, and what r the things do I need to check before taking an insurance? I think most of the companies give cover for the pregnancy after a year. So 1) I want to know,the cheapest and best medical insurance provider to reduce the cost for my pregnancy checkups and delivery who giver immediate coverage. Also I heard government deposit money for a new born child in Australia? is that true? and it is for whom? even this applicable for 489 visa holders? and if I give birth with 489 visa will the child get citizenship immediately? Thanks.

    "Living in Perth" book

    Just got back from a reccie trip to Perth. My sister-in-law & her partner (with whom we stayed) had a copy of a book called "Living in Perth" by Kobie Hattingh. It comes out annually or biannually (and apparently has done for a few years now) and is subtitled "A reference guide for migrants and residents". We found it very useful for working out what suburbs were affordable and which were zoned for high-density occupation, and it's full of advice and information aimed at someone trying to find their feet in WA. It's available online from bookworm.com.au (hope the forum doesn't filter out the link here): Living in Perth Australia 2008/09 I don't have any affiliation with the book or the author: just recommending it on the basis of experience. That, a hire car, a satnav and the real estate section of weekend issue of The West Australian were all we needed to do a fast and efficient survey of where we wanted to live. Cheers b
