I live in the SE suburbs and will be going to Sandringham for the birth currently 9 weeks +3 and have my first scan on 17 August ans cannot wait!
Oops double post sorry it didn't show up before? Weird.
What do you do until the first 15-16 weeks appointment at the hospital though? Just go with your GP?
I really need that continuity of care. Being so far away from home, no close friends nor family around, I need a Obs or midwife that I can trust with my guts and that will take care of me.
I am little scare to I go with Royal Women to try and get into Cosmo and end up not getting it. I'd be devastated
The OB care is so expensive though. Damned PHI all they care about is the birth and the stay at the maternity.
Any concerns I went through my GP til I got to the hospy. I have a great very caring GP if you want she works in Moorabbin though. Sees lots of pregnant women, takes her time with you though and really makes sure you're ok, a great listener which is what I needed. Thorough in the care she offers.
She also gave me a name of a good GP in the clinic I usually go to. Will give him a call
So many options for pregnancy care in Australia. It makes my head spin!!
Does anyone know if you can go public with the Royal Women and then give birth at Frances Perry? Since I am covered with PHI I might as well try and use it!
