View Full Version : experiences with nth west private hospital
I live in Nth brissy and have opted to have our first baby who is due on 2nd june 05 at Nth West Private Hospital.
I was wondering if many here had had any experiences either positive or negative with the hospital and what there thoughts are???????
Would love to hear from you.
My neighbour had her baby there 17 months ago and she raved about the staff. They looked after her really well, which is what I found can make or break the experience of being in hospital. A few other mums I've talked to also found it quite good. You know if there is ever an emergency with the baby they take you to the Royal anyway (as it has Special Care and ICN), which isn't far, but unlike the Royal (where I went) there won't be 4 million other women there having their babies too!!
Good luck and all the best with it!
I had both my girls at the North West. The first one who is now 3.5 years old was 7 weeks early. She was in the special care nursery for 3 weeks. The staff could not do enough for us they were fantastic. It was a shock having her early and no-one can prepare you for that. They do not like to deliver there under 33 weeks and will transfer to the royal only if they have any problems. The hardest part was leaving Laura at the hospital when they sent me home but as I say the staff were unbelievable. They let you ring in the middle of the night if you want to check up on them. It is like home away from home. My second Emily is now 18 months. Again a wonderful experience at the hospital. She was caeserian delivered, I had an emergency one with Laura, and the staff and food are all good. A little tip. When you order your food for the next day have everything. You have a fridge in your room to store your sandwiches which you will need for a midnight snack. You can also order a glass of wine with your meal which they don't tell you about just write wine on the form. You can order and pay for a meal for hubby every day too if you want. So order the lunch and sandwiches and yogurt and anything you can get your hands on.
All the best with the birth
