A woman with a pre-eclampsia condition and her partner have become pregnant, but the pregnancy will be treated as a first-time complication, her doctor said.
The woman, a 33-year-old woman from New Zealand, has been pregnant for less than two months and has had no other health problems.
Her husband, who works in a pharmaceutical company in the country, has not been treated with preterm labour or any other complications.
But the couple, who have been together for five years, were diagnosed with preneoplastic syndromes, a group of conditions that affect the lining of the uterus.
She had two other pregnancies, one with her partner and the other with her mother.
The doctor who treated the woman said there were no other complications to treat.
The couple have three daughters aged five, seven and 12, and the mother is a retired nurse who lives in Auckland.
Her health insurance company had offered to pay for her pregnancy treatment at $3,000 a month but she had turned it down.
The women’s GP said the condition meant she would be covered by a private insurance plan, but that the family would be unable to afford the full cost.
A spokeswoman for New Zealand’s Ministry of Health said she could not comment on individual cases.
The New Zealand government is working on a plan to make sure the treatment is free and accessible.
She said that if a woman’s health insurer had not paid for the treatment, the woman could contact their GP for further details.
However, it would be difficult to do so because of the financial barriers faced by women with preeclamsia, which is often difficult to treat and to control.
There are currently no specific laws regarding pre-natal care, and doctors and patients are not always able to discuss the issue openly.
Dr Simon Smith, of the National Centre for Health Research, said the situation was complex, and that there was a lack of clarity around how to best pay for it.
“The key issue is that there is a lot of money around, and we are seeing more women accessing it and it’s a big issue,” he said.
But he warned that women should be careful about taking out private insurance plans, as it could be difficult for them to get coverage for pre-planned treatments.
If the couple’s insurance company decided to cover the treatment themselves, he said, it could cause problems for the woman and their family.
“They may feel that the treatment isn’t covered by their insurer.
It could be a bit of a red flag if they don’t have access to a provider or insurance.”
A government spokesperson said the government was working on making sure all people with preemie complications had access to treatment.
“The Government is committed to ensuring that all people are provided with the health services they need to prevent and control preemic complications, which can lead to serious consequences for women’s health.”
New Zealand’s National Health Service is offering a free pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) test for people who are at high risk of contracting the disease, including those with premenstrual dysphoric disorder.
