    Default Prince of wales private or Royal hospital for women? Advice on private rooms please

    I am pregnant with number 4. I had my first three at RHW with a private OB and private room. This time I am considering going to POWP but have heard that most people are in a shared room for the first 24 hours. Since I went home after 48 hours the last two times, I really would prefer 48 hours in one room instead of moving after 24 hours.
    Does anyone have any recent experience at the Prince of Wales private? Did you have a private room the whole time? If not, what was it like sharing a room? Was it disruptive to you and bub?
    Thanks for your advice.

    I had DD at POWP in Dec. I had a private room the whole time - in fact we had a double bed so DH could sleep with me which was lovely The big spa baths in the delivery suite were nice as well.
