I was thinking about the Dr charge from carnival. what can carnvial do if they cant pay the bill?
bet carnival tries to bill it to the credit card they put up.
Master Card......birth of a baby... priceless

That was truly priceless!

Seriously, I wonder how that would work since the charge would have to be well beyond what the card hold is.

Wow, this is an interesting story, since Carnival, like RCI, doesn't allow pregnant women who are 24 weeks or more along.

2009 - Enchantment of the Seas (Western Caribbean)
2010 - Freedom of the Seas (Western Caribbean)
2013 - Golden Princess (Alaska, roundtrip from Seattle)

There is nothing that I've read so far indicating that this was a healthy, term baby. If the woman were at a "legal" 23 weeks, not quite 6 months along, and went into premature labor, this could have a tragic outcome. Premature babies have survived with a birth weight as low as one pound, but I think it's the exception and not the rule.

Let's wait for follow-up and hope all is well with both mother and baby.

our grandson was born 11 weeks early, but was born in a hsp with all of the modern medicines and equipment money can buy. he did very well but sure had a rough start. he had an experienced nursing staff with him when he took his first breath.
I am very worried about the outcome that this baby may have.

macmom111, I'm glad your grandson is ok. Giving birth at 29 weeks is a week shy of the magic 30 week mark, when a baby's lungs are supposedly mature enough to sustain life outside the womb. I'm sure you and your family had many anxious moments.

Well for some reason on my last cruise I ask about it...

That will depend on the ship certified inscription for example if Carnival Destiny has their certification on PERU,
He will have that as a second citizenship but since his or her parents are from USA it will be a USA citizen first until his 18 birthday when, at that time he or she can ask for a second citezenship from Peru interesting point because we have the same case in Puerto Rico in the university of Puerto Rico most of our graduate students are either from Peru o Colombia and we already had a few cases like that...

Just to clarify something...the mythical 30 week lung maturity concept is really just that; a myth.

There are many factors that affect fetal lung maturity and depending on the health status of the mom, the baby's lungs can still be immature as late as 37 weeks, especially if she has diabetes. Babies under one pound have survived, but it requires the highest level of care in a well equipped NICU and the long term outcomes are often not good.

I don't mean to contradict you, Sandy, I just want to make sure the right information is out there.

God bless.

Thanks for the information, Wheels. I knew the 30 week mark is not set in stone, which is why I said it's "supposedly" the breathe-easy (as it were) mark for the fetus, and your clarification fills in all the information.
