amara, im 37 and about to start TTC. ive always felt quite happy with the idea of a public hospital for maternity care, and i have a public maternity hosp close by and friends who have had babaies there with no dramas. but like youve mentioned, due to my age, a little part of me now wonders if id like to actually have an OB that i could see throughout a pregnancy just for continuity of care, so im wondering if you could elaborate on how you did this?
i actually have an OB in my area who i think id like to see, im a nurse myself and one of my patients recently was pregnant and needed me to speak to her OB, and i just felt she was lovely and instantly wrote down her name. but im just not sure how you go about it all? how would it work if i wanted to see a private OB but am happy to actually give birth in the local public hospital. and if youve been seeing a private OB, do you still have appointments with anyone at the hospital? i honestly have no idea how it all works.
