    Default Pregnancy care - how does it work?

    I feel like a fool asking this, as i have 2 children already, but i can't remember how it works
    If i am going through the public health system do i just call the hospital i want to birth in and book or do i need a referral? I vaguely recall some pregnancy line i had to ring last time to organise pregnancy care - anyone know what i'm talking about? Do i need to just call that number, if so how do i find that number?
    Now sure what to do from here..

    TIA

    With me I called the hospital and they told me to book in when I was 10-12 weeks. I did all test ect b4 then with my GP.

    You need to call the pregnancy hotline and they allocate you to a hospital depending on your address. I did manage to get my appointments moved from modbury to w&ch (where i am having my bub) but it took some convincing. The hotline gives you a reference number and the contact number at your allocated hospital. I would book in very early if you are planning on mgp as spaces are hard to get.
