    I haven't been to either but from what I've heard I would highly recommend you go to Joondalup. I have only hear horror stories from Osborne park! It doesn't have a very good reputation at the moment!!

    I'm the opposite. Love OPH, had two of my boys there and can't fault them. Joondalup I won't go near at all.

    Go to Joondalup or kemh. I can't go into details as i might get in trouble but there have been massive negligent cases at Osborne park. One which left a lady in my community in a coma, the other a woman died as a result of doctors not reading medical notes, a simple course of antibiotics would have kept her alive.

    Do u trust your gp's opinion...ask them too.

    I've had all three of mine at Osborne Park. They are amazing there. I wouldn't listen to unsubstantiated claims :/ I suggest touring a few so you get a feel for each hospital. I stayed in KEMH for a week due to early labour. They were also great but there are plenty of unsavory types there which makes me cringe everytime I think about it.

    Had my first in 2008 at Joondalup public, and my 2nd, 11 weeks ago, at Joondalup private. Couldn't fault them. Good luck!
