I was wondering if anyone has been through the high risk clinic at the Women's & Children's Hospital?
My first pregnancy ended very badly with my twins both dying and myself nearly dying when I suffered a ruptured liver caused by HELLP syndrome. I have since been told that in any subsequent pregnancies I would need to be cared for at the high risk clinic at the Women's & Children's Hospital.
I am lead to believe that as a public patient even though you are considered high risk you still don't see the same obstetrician for each appointment. Is this the case? In my first pregnancy I was booked into Mt Barker Hospital which is public but was seen by a private obstetrician who's only charge was a very small gap for each visit which was great. I have also heard that when seen in the high risk clinic you are looked after by a team of doctors. ???
I would love to hear from anyone who has had experience with this.
