    Default Recent Experiences at Ipswich Hospital

    I birthed my second at Ipswich Hospital through their Group Midwifery Practice (one midwife all the way through and birth) and it was a much better experience than through RBWH.

    Midwives are for low risk pregnancies, Obs are for high risk IMO.

    i had 6 of my 8 kids at ipswich hosp. cant fault them at all. if you want continuity of care see if you can through the group practice. they are awesome. but just being a regular public patient was fine also. I was actually transfered to the mater at one stage due to pre term labour (which stopped) all i can say is im glad bub held on because the care i recieved ipswich was far better. You will find people who do not like a certain hosp no matter which one you ask about. Ipswich has come far in the last 10 years. Dont mix up maternity services with the reputation of the emergency dept. (so over worked it cant cope) the two are worlds apart.

    I'm delivering at Ipswich hospital using the midwives from My Midwives (mentioned above). But I do have a maternity anecdote from there in regards to my SIL. She was about 22 wks and unwell and we went down to emergency about 8pm and they moved her up to Maternity services really quickly. We were met by a nurse who initially behaved as tho my SIL was overreacting and a bit of a waste of time... Then as my SIL was in the bathroom the nurse asked me if she knew me and I said yes, you're X and Y's mother... And then SIL came out and nurse said to her aren't you Z's sister? And suddenly we were all BFFs and the nurse was way friendlier and attentive after that... So hey, it's who you know down there sometimes!

    I had both my kids at the Ipswich hospital both times I had no issues. The only thing I was unhappy with was them bathing number 1 without me there I missed his first bath. But otherwise no faults at all
