    Default New to Melbourne need advice on choosing an OB & Private Hospital

    Hi there,
    I'm new to Melbourne and living in the Bayside area. Can anyone recommend an Obstetrician and private hospital? Not really sure where to start.
    Am expecting my 2nd baby. My first was delivered by C section so I'm kind of nervous of finding a new OB. Are there any that are well known for performing C sections very well ?
    Thanks in advance

    I live bayside and gave birth at Jessie Macpherson private hospital. My Ob was DR John Regan. Dr Danielle Wilkins is also very good.

    I'm going to St Vincents Private and seeing Dr David O'Callaghan who is wonderful. He is also has a female OB in his practice, Megan Di Quinzio who is absolutely lovely as well. Can highly recommend them.

    I had my two children at St. Vincent's Private and David O'Callaghan delivered them. I cannot speak highly enough of him! He was absolutely fantastic and I'd recommend him to anyone. Oh and he's pretty easy on the eye too!!! PM me if you need any further info.
