    If we chose an obstetrician next pregnancy we would choose Dr Alastair Morris. He is a wonderful man. He handled DPs miscarriage and D&C so gracefully and made us feel so comfortable. Despite the awful circumstances, we consider meeting him to be one of the silver linings of our ordeal. The midwives at RNS rave about him too, which is telling I think.

    He is a true gentleman and went above and beyond for us, if that is how he was with an ill fated pregnancy I can't imagine how great we would feel having a successful pregnancy under his care.

    The Scottish accent doesn't hurt either

    I have no idea of his obstetric fees but I know he didn't charge the gap for our D&C so I think they're probably quite reasonable. Call his rooms tomorrow, his secretary is seriously lovely, she will be able to tell you more.

    Hi all, does anyone know how long after a simple birth you are expected to stay in hospital for? I called the Mater - they said 3 nights max and NSP seems to be 4 nights - anyone have feedback on this? Mater said you can stay longer if you have a medical condition and if your doctor approves on the longer stay.....?

    thanks all

    I have had three babies at North Shore Private. Did my research with midwives who worked there. Our first was with Felicity Gallimore who was very nice and patient. Steven Tan apparently has the highest rate of Caesarian sections at the hospital (like more than 50%!!). That is a bad sign. Our second was with Anne MacGibbon based on midwives recommendation as Felicity was not available. Ours was a breach and as it turn out she is the only doctor at that hospital the will turn the bub so I could have a normal delivery- otherwise you are up for a CS or risky delivery. Apparently the other Obstetricians refer to Anne MacGibbon to do this for their own ladies with breaches. She is very calm and kind. We had our third with her too which was great.

    I guess you need to do your homework regardless. Good Luck
