I'm at my wits end, seriously I'm so mad.
I've got SO many friends who have been to the Royal Birth Centre Brisbane who are OUTSIDE their catchment area. SO many!! Some have gotten in by forging a different address or using a work address inside the catchment area, etc.
I live in Pine Rivers area - literally 100 metres outside the catchment.
Today I get a call to say no, we can't get in because we're outside. I thought we'd try it anyway, but NO DEAL. And no, I didn't forge an address, I thought I'd do it the proper way!
I don't freaking understand how so many people get in who are OUTSIDE the catchment!!!!
Looks like we'll be going back to the Mater instead (and driving STRAIGHT PAST the Birth centre) on the way.
Don't get me wrong, I loved everything about the Mater and I had a perfect birthing experience. But this time I desperately want a water birth, and there's only the Birth centre in my area, which won't accept us.
Grrrrr. What is wrong with this system!!!!
