    Nah Liverpool isn't the best hospital yet. They are trying to though! My midwife said that they wernt allowed to talk about formula in the classes do they live up to westmeads standards O.o whoever is the owner or in charge of Liverpool hospital is just looking at making it the biggest public hospital in Australia, there's nothing about being the best hospital. They could be the biggest hospital in the world and yet have the most rude people working there.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your replies. When i posted it i was 7 weeks pregnant..now iam 34 wks i am still going to fairfield hospital. What iam worrying is As it is my first delivery i dont know how it is going to be. And the midwife said fairfield doesn't have Epidural facility, no VBAC etc. Did any one come across this situation? If i really need to take epidural at that time what should i do? do they provide any other alternatives? Can any one please advise me if you got this situation? do we really need epidural? if there is any critical situation do they shift to liverpool?

    and how will be the after delivery in fairfield hospital? do they really help?
    ohhh so many questions...iam bit scared

    Waiting for ur replies..

    Thank you....

    Sorry I can't give you direct answers about Fairfield but I also found s lot of questions about delivery started coming into my head about this time in my pregnancy. My suggestion is to write them down and chat with the midwife about them at your next visit to make sure you know all there is to know when it is time to deliver bubs

    You'll get transferred to Liverpool if there are any complications. As for the epidural I guess it would depend on your pain threshold. I did okay with my little one on gas.

    Good luck!

    Hi there
    I'm in the same boat as you I'm thinking either Liverpool or Fairfield but haven't made up my mind yet I'm 10 weeks now and booked my first Anenatal appointment at Liverpool on 15th Feb. They're heard to reach via phone and I had to ring all day to book and even then they kept transfering me to the eying departments. Bit annoying!

    Can you tell me how did you go at Fairfield? I suspect you would have delivered by now? Hope everything was smooth sailing for you! Do give us an update! Cheers!

    Sorry I'm on my tablet and the touch screen has a mind of it's own sometimes! I meant they're hard to reach and I was transferred to the wrong department 5 times!

    Hi everyone..thanks for ur help. Finally I had a normal delivery at Fairfield hospital on jan 31. With my experience I can say Fairfield hospital is really gud. So, anyone with my situation don't need to think about going to Liverpool . The delivery suite was good and after delivery care was really good. So, don't worry about the hospital and just enjoy ur pregnancy. All the best

    I don't like Liverpool. My dad died there and they just made to many mistakes.

    But I gave birth there. (8 years ago) I was 19 and they midwives were very rude, all of them!
    After I had DD I was left alone. Then I was made to wake her every 3 hours for a feed, if she dent wake I was told to put cold water on her feet, this was after I had undressed her. I was made to feel like sh!t because she wanted to sleep instead of feeding. I left as soon as I could and no one came to my house as a follow up, if they had they may have realised I didn't have Milk and my daughter was starving..

    My sister also gave birth there (9 years ago) and had a awful experience. They didn't pick up something was wrong,they didn't believe her when she told them something was wrong. This ended in energy c section where both almost died and my sister almost needed a blood transfusion, her child was in NICU for a week or more, sedated for the first 3 days.

    So I'd go Fairfield.

    I know this is an old thread, but wondering if anyone has any recent experiences of either Liverpool Public or Liverpool Private hospitals?
