    Default Womens & Childrens Adelaide

    Apparently if you live within 20kms of the W&C, you can go there. But I have a frient who is just short of that but she still didn't get in. According to google maps I'm 18kms (Coromandel Valley), does anyone know a bit more about this?

    Hi...I'm not 100% sure on the km radius thing I'm sorry! I know that it is all zoned now - I had to ring the pregnancy hotline to find out where I was zoned...I'm out NE so could go to either WCH or Lyell McEwin but had to have my first antenatal appointment at Modbury satellite clinic. Being at Coromandel Valley you may be zoned to Flinders? But you could always ring the hotline and ask the question I guess. Sorry I'm not a great deal of help am I? Good luck!!

    One of my friends had her son at W&CH 14 months ago and she lives 575km from it (we're in Roxby Downs). A number of other women I know who are pregnant now here have chosen where they want to go (Flinders, Kapunda Health Service, Lyell McEwin)...

    Could be different circ's though, cos there is no where to give birth here?

    If you are zoned to Flinders, though, I hear it is fantastic so wouldn't be a bad thing!

    you dont have to go anywhere you dont want to. I was meant to do visits at modbury with dd or so lady on the hotline said and i ended up having a fight with her. I needed to be refered to wch for the midwifery group practice so i could use the same midwife again. After you call the jhotline you can also then call the hospital of choice and get an appointment with them and disregard the hotlines advice.

    As far as I know you an choose your hospital, the only time they may cause issue is if they're fully booked in which case they may emphasize that and try to refer you elsewhere but ultimately it's up to you. If you're in CV I'd think you were with FMC they're great to birth with

    when i found out i was expecting i was told by the gp that i was unable to choose what hospital i was to give birth at, i was so p!ssd, so i went straight to my local gp and asked for a referal letter for womens and childrens as i was unfamiliar with any other hospital as i live in the north eastern suburbs, gp was happy to right referal, not sure if im any help but it worked for me. =)

    The 20km thing is for their midwife led birthing centre. I can't use that (well, high risk so couldn't anyway) as I'm it the hills, but I'm definitely giving birth there in the hospital bit and did last time too
