    I have my fingers crossed for you! I did put in a formal complaint (and I did get called back by the head of the maternity unit) about my experience with the mater and I hope this means they have looked into the communication between the mgp and the on-duty midwives.

    I didn't go with the group first time and I never got the support you were looking for. I don't think it has to do with the group specifically, just more of a gap in education for new mum's.

    I started through MGC at the Mater and switched to hospital care at 36 weeks along due to moving quite far from the Mater. Was not happy with MGC. I thought all was fine until i saw the ob at the hospital I transferred to who found some medical issues with the pregnancy that the MGC midwives had overlooked which meant I needed to be induced. Also, earlier in my pregnancy id been to the GP for a non-pregnancy related matter and he thought I may have GD and asked I follow this up with midwives. Midwives dismissed this and wouldn't refer me for another test. The hospital ob said the original GD result wasn't on my file and she couldn't get them from the lab as the lab had no record of me as a patient. So no idea how the midwife would have been so sure I didn't have DG.
    Overall I found the program to be a bit too 'hippyish' for my liking and not medically focussed enough. Very happy I left the program before having bub.
