    Hi kw123! Yes I remember I sent you a private message about your private midwife. My OB turns out to be as expensive than a private midwife. I am happy with what I have heard about this OB (supportive of natural vaginal birth etc).

    Hello bubert! How are you travelling in your first trimester? Feeling well?

    AFM I have called The Royal Women and yes they still have the cosmo program but it is limited in numbers and only for low risk pregnancies. The other thing is that apparently they do not see you before your 18/20 weeks along. Before that you have to go with your GP.
    It sounds like a great care program!

    I will give it more thoughts tonight with DH.

    Thanks! I'm having a girl, we couldn't wait to find out because 99% of our friends thought we were having a boy but I secretly felt girl from 12 weeks and was right! Found out at an 18 week ultrasound the pregnancy has gone quick up until now.. Feel like I'm tapping my foot waiting for the time to come lol

    Was coping quite well with mild ms until around week 10 then got hit with a tonne of bricks. Been on bed rest since last week and now have a virus so am in a lot of pain that only fluids and bed rest can help. Oh well, I'll get there ;-)
    Super excited (trying not to be nervous) about 12wk scan on mon. Just wanna see a happy bubba in there :-)

    I know the feeling of not having family close by (ours are in qld), but couldn't imagine having them as far away as EU. Are u visiting them or are they coming to Aus? I wonder how we will go with bubs as we left our family and close friends in qld 2 years ago- going to hit home hard I think not having them close.

    I heard really good things about royal women's maternity programs but unfortunately we are out if their area of acceptance.

    You do have an earlier appointment at the hospital (around 14-16weeks) where you see a midwife and an Ob. It's at these appointments that you ask to go through cosmos. I got my gp to send the referral to the hospital when I went in at 10 weeks to do bloods and check referral for 12 week scan.

    This pregnancy is considered slightly high risk (blood pressure issue from previous pregnancy) and they were still happy to take me. I think there main thing is the don't care for women who have to have a c-section, I'm going for a vbac this time so they were ok with taking me.

    A few things about the hospital that you may be interested in knowing:

    They only do ultrasounds for high risk pregnancies, so you will need to get a referral from your gp.
    They do all your blood work and glucose check.
    If you need to see a physio (before or after birth) it's all done through the hospital.
    They have breast feeding and birthing classes through the hospital.

    It really is a fantastic program.

    Hi all! I am 22 weeks but apart from that, everything happymum2 said goes for me too I live in inner Melbourne and am going for a vbac at the women's. I have a DS who is 2.5. Unfortunately I didn't get into the cosmos program either pregnancy but i have my second appointment at the women's next Wednesday and I'm going to beg to be let in it. I had a yucky experience with an Ob my last visit, and now I'm really keen to have a nice middie who knows me in my corner to back me up in labour.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm really new to this, I'm between 6 and 7 weeks along (depending on whether I go by LMP or an early scan to check for an ectopic - dates were 5 days apart). This is our first pregnancy.

    I'm in SE Melbourne and I'm planning to go look at SJOG Berwick asap and will probably go there. But it's still very early days for us
