I'm very newly pregnant with my first and becoming more and more aware of how much I don't know... I nearly fell off my chair yesterday when the idea of an 'internal ultrasound' was broached...they never show that in the movies!!!
Anyhow, Im stating to look into birthing options and I'm keen to go public but all things going well, would like to use a birthing centre. My local options are Royal Randwick or Prince of Wales, does anyone have experience with either of these?
I'm also thinking of investing in a private midwife (rather than an OB as apparently they only turn up to 'catch the baby'), at least there will be one familiar face all the way through....good or bad idea?
Ohh...one other thing is calm birthing? Someone on another forum mentioned a course allaboutbirth, has anyone heard anything about this technique?
