    Default Mater Private and OB's - Help!

    I am just over 5 weeks pregnant and have decided on Mater Private in Brisbane. This is our first, so everything is very daunting !! I was referred to Dr Keeping, but can't believe his Birth Mangement Fee of $2800! Is this standard ? I was also given the names of Alex Alexander and Bronwen Byrne ??

    Can anyone provide any advice on OB's and standard fee's ?

    I am feeling very lost

    I went Mater for my last pregnancy - ur mgmt fee is pretty standard for that hospital. I've heard of an OB there that charged $4500 mgmt fee! I saw Dr Cheung (2010) and she charged $2500 back then.

    I decided to go Wesley this time, coz the OBs are a little more affordable. I'm paying $1000 this time with Dr Hill

    I went to Bronwen, she is an amazing Dr my birth was fantastic and I have her to thank for it. I had my daughter in 2010 and her pregnancy management fee was about $1800 then and her consults were $90 each appointment. Not sure how much the prices have changed since then. The mater private was great, I loved my birth and whole experience there.

    Yep pretty standard. Arrivals Obs (group practice across the road from the Mater) are a similar fee.
