View Full Version : SOR playgroups??
hi all, does anyone know a good playgroup SOR around victoria park area??? Ive only been in perth 2 months and have no idea, also any advice on good birthing centres around perth i just found out im 6 weeks pregnant and as i had my 19month old while i was working in hong kong i have no idea how to have a baby in australia.....i feel like the biggest idiot!!! So any advice AT ALL would be very much appreciated! thank you
I have a 19month old and am (nearly)6wks preggers too!! I had my last baby in Darwin and thought the same thing (I don't know how to have a bub in Perth). I went to my GP last week and got a referral to an OB - we'll probably be going to Mercy Hospital - they have open days on Sunday, so DH and I thought we'd check it out.
As for Birthing Centres - the only one I know of around is at King Eddy. There was another thread about where to have a bub in Perth and I think it was the only birthing centre mentioned on there. I'm sure some of the other girls will hop across with more knowledge than me... :p
welcome to perth!
I am not sure about birthing centres but 2 very good maternity hospitals are St John of God Murdoch (where I had my bub) or Subiaco. Or there is Attadale hospital.
Depends on whether you want to go private or public?
Not sure about playgroups either - see if you can find out where your local child health nurse is as they can tell you if there are playgroups. usually you can find this out by calling a doctor surgery in your area and asking them if they know or you can search on the net.
Had my babies in SA so no info about that, the thread that Pegasus mentioned seemed quite detailed.
But try the Playgroups WA website they have a database of playgroup locations.
Good luck with your pregnancy, my youngest is 6 months and I already want a third!
I used to attend a very good playgroup in East Vic Park (we moved house though so it became too far away)- it was the Montessori Playgroup up near the shops (behind the library). Montessori Playgroup is all about the kids so there was always lots of activities and things to do (and it had an employed playleader who ran the group too).
If you aren't into Montessori and are after a more casual playgroup there was one in the same complex which was a community playgroup the details for both are on the Playgroup WA web site
