    Default GP and OB confusion

    Hey,

    So I am ten weeks pregnant, I have just had my first scan. I moved back to the Sunny Coast about 8 months ago and was just seeing the Doctor at the family medical centre around the corner for small things. So I don't have a GP or OB. Does this mean when I am about to go into labour that i just go straight to the public hospital? I don't have private health. So confused here on what I'm meant to be doing as all my friends live in a small town so they have one GP and midwives as one hospital??

    Are you looking at having any prenatal health checks? If so you'll have to go through your local GP for a referral to either an ob or if you want to go public whatever public maternity hospital catchment you fall into. Yes you can just turn up at any public hospital in labour or if you have any concerns about your pregnancy as well but they like it better if your booked in with them.
