    Dr Alex is absolutely wonderful .. I would have asked him to deliver both my boys, but he moved from Sunnybank Private to the Mater, and I wanted my hospital to be closer to home ... I cant recommend him highly enough, he is truly lovely

    Ive heard good things about the obs and middies at http://www.babyarrivals.com.au/ they only deliver at Mater Mothers

    They also do the 'no gap' with most health funds, so check with your private health if they are a recognised provider

    From their website:

    "Arrivals participates in the “No Gap” schemes of most private health funds and, if eligible, your account for all in-hospital obstetric services incurred after 20 weeks gestation will be forwarded directly to your private health fund. As such, there will be no out-of-pocket expenses.
    It is important that you ensure your health fund covers you for obstetric services in a private hospital at the time you are due to deliver and also that you have “No Gap” cover."
