Hi I really like your page and I was wondering if any mums out there would have the same experience. Please keep my name anonymous for now. I am Australian and I gave birth to a baby overseas. Dad passed away. I want to go back to Australia but I have no family there and I was wondering whether the government has any support for moms giving birth overseas so in a way can help me get back on my feet and eventually let me get back to Australia so I can raise my baby there. I have a 4 month old baby. Does the government provide help if you gave birth overseas? Thanks so much.

  • If you are Australian or a perm resident you can claim centrelink assistance. Depending ln your circumstances but it sounds like you would be entitled to ftb as a minimum

  • What a tricky situation, hope it worked out well.

  • Only if you are living here would the government assist in any family benefits

  • I really hope it all goes well for you x

  • I hope things went well for you and you got the assistance you needed

  • U would have to call them and ask! U would want to make sure

  • I’m pretty sure you’d have to move to Aus first before receiving any form of assistance. I hope things are working out for you.

  • Are you able to move here?

  • You must be in Au to receive help :(

  • Hope you got some answers

  • Just wondering how you went. Did you move here?

  • You will be entitled to help but you must be in Australia to receive it.

  • You and your children would have to be living here to be able to receive a benefit from centrelink

  • maybe contact centrelink or the Australian government

  • i would say yes that you should be able to
