    Default Mater Hospital vs Royal Brisbane

    In regards to going public for birth, it will be my 3rd c-section, can anyone tell me pros and cons of the Mater Hospital vs Royal Brisbane? Do both have a special care unit? How long did you stay? thanks.

    Both have a NICU and SCN. I don't think you will get much of a choice which one to go to though- they both generally only take people who live within their catchment areas.

    catchment area based unfortunately. so northside/west is rbh and south/east is mater. I went private to avoid the RBH.

    I'm at Stafford... I had my other 2 kids at Northwest and went private, and have just discovered about 2 weeks ago im unexpectedly 9 weeks pregnant... i won't be covered by the private health, I'm too late for that. (i didn't know i was pregnant as I had no symptoms at the time, my periods have never ever been regular, so it was a complete suprise) But my friend lives at Sunnybank and still managed to have her baby at the Mater... never heard of having to be in a catchment area... hmmm.

    Plus my biggest problem is, with my two kids I went early and then earlier again. I'm worried i'll be even earlier more like around the 32-34 week mark this time.

    sunnybank and all the way to browns plains/greenbank are in the mater catchment area. RBH has the full SCN etc and the kiddies hospy is right next door for any real issues so you will be right.
