What dangers do you think that the baby might be exposed to? Presumably a chest radiograph? Do a search on here - there have been LOADS of threads about this. You can wear a protective guard to cover the pelvis.

I agree with the chest x-ray bit. Further info that may reassure you, a chest film is considered to have the same radiation dose as 2 or 3 days background radiation, or one transatlantic plane flight.

You can always wait until you have delivered to have the chest x-ray.

Hi

I have a friend that was pregnant at the time the medical request came and her and her husband decided to wait to get the medicals done. The applied through Buffalo and the Consulate did not find any problem in waiting for the medicals to be completed.

My wife went through with the test late in pregnancy. The radiographer shielded her very well before the x-ray was taken which was quite save for we did a lot of research before the medical. One thing I'll like to advice before you decide to go for the medical is make sure you will be travelling immediately or before your child is delivered because if the visa is issued and you have the baby here, you'll have to send everything back for cancellation and investigation done on your new baby. You can also contact CIC and have them suspend your medical until after you've had the baby. Don't forget, any addition to your family composition will have to go through the same process as before you got to this stage and can also be refused "if God forbids any thing medically wrong with your baby." In my case, we have landed, just waiting for the baby any time soon better than going through the sail speed process again.

During my interview with the immigration officer, I mentioned that my wife is pregnant and he proposed himself to delay the medical till she deliver our babies (Twins). It will take you a couple of months more to update your file with the new family member but for me it was worth the hassle. I didn't want to risk even so I agree with many reviews threads that there is a kind of protection.

if am going on TWP and there is a new addition to my family why do i have to start the process all over again. As i understand it am the only one that will be doing the medical in my family as am in the medical field, I would have thought is inform CIC that i have a new baby for them to amend there record.
Thanks

You wouldn't, but you didn't say you were on a TWP in your original post, how are we supposed to know that?

If you're waiting on a TWP medical to start a healthcare job, I assume you won't be able to start work at all until you've had it done. I don't know much about TWPs but you should probably make sure your other paperwork (job offer, LMO if applicable etc.) will still be valid by the time you get round to taking your medical.

If you are on TWP then you may want to think about your job security when your employers discover you are pregnant.
