I am going away to Europe and to my surprise my latest cycle of ivf worked. We then realised the travel insurance only covers up until 20 weeks and won't cover for "pregnancies resulted from assisted reproduction"... Anyway after lots of research today I have found
Cover-more will cover up until 26weeks if you complete "pre-existing medical condition" form (and pay the associated premium)
Down-under insurance similarly adds a premium but will insure to 26 weeks for ivf.

No other company would insure me.
No company would do multiple pregnancies or ivf pregnancy beyond 26 weeks, nor would they cover "labour or care of a newborn".

Thought I'd share the outcome of my hours of research as we really are discriminated against here and before I found a viable option I was extremely stressed out (and want to avoid you people having to go through the same!)

Hey areyouthereb! Good info, I'm not pregnant through ivf but am travelleing to Europe also. Ill be 21wks going and almost 24 coming back, how far along will you be when you travel?
Just interested to hear if you're doing anything in particular or taking anything special for the long flight? Have even told by midwife just drink plenty and walk around a lot and all should be fine!
Be good to hear if you have any other info :)

Hi Areyouthere, I had similar issues searching for ages to try and find cover. Nightmare. I ended up finding this article - i've copied and pasted the details below. Hope it helps!

Columbus Direct cover until 30 weeks of pregnancy with an additional premium.

1Cover, Covermore and Downunder cover until 26 weeks of pregnancy. They both also cover for multiple pregnancies, or single pregnancies conceived through IVF.

State cover up until 24 weeks of pregnancy. They both also cover for multiple pregnancies, or single pregnancies conceived through IVF.

Webjet cover up until 23 weeks. They do NOT cover for multiple pregnancies, pregnancies conceived through IVF or pregnancy related complications.

Tower and SCTI cover until 20 weeks. They both also cover for multiple pregnancies, or single pregnancies conceived through IVF.
