I am currently 31weeks pregnant and have placenta previa. I have had four large bleeds so far in my pregnancy, with the last being on the 5th March 2012. I was brought into KEMH by ambulance and have been told that I will now have to stay in hospital until delivery, which is currently planned for 37weeks.
My obstetrician, Dr Mike Aitken is based at SJOG Subi and I was seeing him up until I was admitted to KEMH. Dr Patrick Wu is my consultant here. I now have a choice to make. At 32weeks, I will be able to be transferred to SJOG Subiaco as they are able to deliver babies from that gestation, or I can stay here. I am just not sure which hospital would be most comfortable for a long term stay and also whether SJOG could carry out an emergency delivery as quickly as KEMH could.
I am going to try to make an appointment with Mike for next week (I will be allowed out of hospital to go to the appointment) to discuss my concerns/options with him then, but I wondering if there are any other mums out there who have been in a similar situation and can offer their suggestions? I had my DD at SJOG, but I really can't remember the rooms, food etc. Any help would be appreciated!
