    If you want to travel up to Joondalup Private Hospital there are 2 excellent female Obs - Dr Margo Norman and Dr Susan Isdale. I had them both (as they cover each other on alternate weekends), I saw one for consults and then I had the other one for delivery, and they were great. Joondalup has a Special Care Nursery (level 2) and an excellent lactation consultant that you can access on the ward and up to 2 weeks postnatally for free! They run a free breastfeeding class you can attend in your late pregnancy and this is very useful too. You just need to ring the ward to book into the class. There is another female Ob there Dr Althea Magee who I have heard good things about too.

    Joondalup have some rooms with double beds for your partner to stay with you or they will provide your partner with a folder-bed if you are in a single bed (as you need to be in one after a caesarean)

    Hi ladies

    I am with Dr Helen Clarke who works out of SJOG in Subiaco. It's our first baby so cannot speak from experience on delivery but she is very matter of fact which I really like. I have spoken to three people, two of which had emergency type births and both said how amazing she was under pressure.
    I am nearly 26 weeks and I really like the care I have got from her so far. She is approximately $2800 from memory but her other fees for delivery etc are fully covered by HBF.
    She was quite difficult to get into to. I booked at 3 weeks for an 8 week appt.

    Good luck

    I would highly recommend Margo. DS was in the SCN and the nurses there were absolutely wonderful. They were also really supportive when we were discharged. Hopefully you don't need the SCN this time round though.

    I can recommend Dr margo Norman too, I did go public but she was 2 of mines labours and was great ( I don't like dr's at the birth part just me) but she was great.And yes came back after birth to check...she is genuinely a lovely person who I think highly of . I have friends who have been through her for IVF and for normal pregnancy that rave about her. If you are near Joondalup I recommend Margo she is gold.

    Hello,

    I had a great male Ob at SJOG Subi (Dr Nick Tsokos) and had a good experience with DS in the Special care nursery. The SCN nurses brought DS downstairs to me in his crib for breastfeeding as I was in bed after CS. I also expressed and sent colostrum up to the nursery for him to be syringe fed. They were very supportive of breastfeeding and we went on to breastfeeding for 16months. After a few days DS became an "outpatient" of SCN and roomed with us with the SCN nurses visiting him to do obs.
    We were also lucky enough to get a double room from day two so DP could move off the foldup bed on the floor.
    we've booked same Ob at SJOG Subi and looking forward to having second bub there in June.
    Good luck in your research and I hope you get the birthing experience you wish for.

    I had my bub at SJOG Murdoch with Anna Holmes and she is lovely, and a fantastic OB. If i ever have another bub, I'll be going straight back!

    Hi everyone i hope you dont mind that I am subscribing too as I am very new to Perth and as we are TTC I am also interested in hearing about good OBs. Do any of you happen to know if OBs at SJOG Murdoch accept high risk pregnancies? I have lupus and am not sure how I'll go getting in with a private OB

    I'm sure there are some that specialise in high risk. You could probably grab the names of some of the obs in here, and call their offices. The main thing you need to remember is that you need to book into an ob as soon as you get a positive test as they book out very quickly
