Re: Supplementary insurance while being pregnant ("existing condition")

I think for the actual birth, there is little difference between normal and supplementary insurance. (I might be wrong there, my experience is over 20 years ago)

Afterwards with supplementary insurance you get a private or a semi private room. Mostly you are seen by the chief doctor.

Without the supplementary you might be in a room with up to 3 other women, if it is busy, or you might be alone in a 4 bedded room. You would also be seen every day at least, by a junior qualified doctor, who is obliged to call in the senior doctor if anything is unusual.

Mothers learn from each other, and I would personally choose the basic system, rather than be isolated in a private room.
