    Default Pegasus at RBWH

    Ok so I am seeing this rotation of midwives, what dose that mean?? Can anyone tell me? Lol
    I had my first appointment a week and a half ago but that was just to book me in, my first appointment with Pegasus is when I am 24 weeks, I have a 20 week appointment with the doctor at the hospital so the know I am there lol
    So can anyone tell me their experience with Pegasus?

    That clinic is usually on Friday's. You will see between 4 and 8 different midwives through antenatal care but you will also get one of those midwives during labour. I was with Pegasus with DD2 and Phoenix with DS which is the same but on Thursday's and haven 't been able to fault either

    We're in the same midwife team! I was going to do shared care but changed...took great comfort knowing someone i'm familiar with and who sees it everyday is helping me on the most important day of our lives I've had two friends recommend the program.

    We had a great experience but I didn't get a midwife that I had seen deliver DS.

    It's reassuring to hear that woman have had as good experience. The birth with DD was horrid (at Mater) and the birth with DS was text book ( also at mater) so I am afraid thatoving hospitals would be put back to square 1 like with DD. my epidural was no good with DD but was perfect with DS, I guess I am just afraid I will he rushed off for a caesar like I almost did with DD

    I was in pegasus for my first. I always saw different midwives for my appt, I think there was twice I saw someone I had seen before. I also did not get a midwife I knew for my labor. I was then in Phoenix for my second and again never saw the same midwife (thankfully for that labor I had a doula so was thoroughly supported by her).
