    Talking Any Obstetrician reccomendations? (VIC)

    Hi ladies,

    I am looking for a wonderful obstetrician that is based in VIC. I am leaning towards giving birth in the Knox (Wantirna).

    I don't have lady friends that have bubs so I thought I would ask you all if you from previouse experience had a wonderful warm, kind, obstetrician. I can google them but it feels more appropriate for me to get advice from real women with real experiences.


    Many Thanks Gurtling

    I don't have any recommendations, but I would definitely advise against Nira Gaur

    I am really upset because these people all charge $5000 - $10,000 for their services throughout your pregnancy. (After the piddly bit medicate gives back). I am upset cause I got the provate health insurance, and now that I am pregnant Im clearly explained that only the hospital is included and everything for the 9 months before the birth is not included. I feel so ripped off by Iselect (La Trobe Health).
    Basically I have top hospital coverage, and I am not allowed to use a public obstetrician if I want to give birth in a private hospital....

    So I have a Ferrari.... but I don't have the bloody key for it. I spent last night in tears. We really don't have $5,000 to $10,000 just for the (private) obstetrician.


    Is there a way around this that any of you more experienced ladies know of? It would be so daft to not use my private insurance for the birth....

    You have to have an obstetrician to attend a private hospital, no other option. Doesn't matter what level of Private Health Coverage you have.
    I saw Nicholas Yule at Frances Perry he was great.

    Thanks for that tip. I think then I will have to bite the bullet and accept the fact I cant change the prices.

    Many thanks. At least now I know I am not the only one! I wish though that Iselect had explained it when I joined up. They said I was covered for all pregnancy related appointments etc. Ahhhh well...

    OP, my sister used one of those on your list, and while good, it's not worth the money. I myself have had 2 private births at Frances Perry. Yes, an extended stay and 5 star hotel is nice, but it's not the be all and end all. I also had a little more intervention than I would have liked because I had a private ob. Obstetricians work form a medical model which is about managing risk. Midwifery works from a more nursing type approach that views birth as a normal life event to be managed in the best way to support the patient. Neither way is more correct than the other, just different. The midwifery approach often results in less intervention for low risk mums.

    I am having my soon to be born baby at the Family Birth Centre at the Mercy. I cannot fault the care and attention that I have recieved from them. The FBC does not have a catchment area and accepts any mother that is low risk. Also, the FBC is co-located within the Mercy hospital which along with the Royal Womens is the only other tertiary maternity hospital in Melbourne. You cannot be in a better place if for some reason you end up having any type of complication. Give them a call and go for a tour asap. They are public and all your care is bulk billed, but you do get personal attention.
