I'm not pregnant yet (lol) but DH and I just had a total makeover of our family budget and we find out that we do not want to continue our private health care insurance at all (it's part of the budget that we cut off), that means if we ever ttc bub #2 we cannot afford to go to a private obgyn and private hospital.
If you've had a good experience with private hospital before then decide to go public for the next one - how did you find it to your liking? I had a good exp with the birth of my first one and i didn't feel traumatised at all, i had a great team of midviwes and a great obgyn who looked after me.
To be honest, sometimes I think the in-house service in the private hospital such as the room, foods, etc is the only thing that sets it apart from public hospitals... i guess in terms of healthcare quality, they're still comparable right? I believe most of hospitals in Australia have excellent healthcare quality and standard.
I try not to worry to much about 'room-service' stuff in private hospitals... but is there anyone here who dislikes public hospital after going to private before?
