    Default Royal North Shore or Manly? Can I choose?

    Hi everyone

    I'm very new to all this. I'm not going with an OB, due to financial restraints, and was curious, as a public patient do I have a right to choose a hospital to do my checkups and have my baby?

    Depends on the catchment area? Id probably ask your GP which hospital(s) you can go to.

    I had my son at RNSH 3 years ago and found them heavy handed with intervention and pushy with 'policies' and very much telling you what you "have to" do with your body. My SIL had her baby there 6 months ago and had a similar, she had to fight them every step of the way for a natural birth for a normal pregnancy.

    So if you have a choice id personally avoid RNSH.
