Oh, and as for making friends. If you give birth in Victoria, you will automatically be registered with your local maternal health nurse, who will in turn introduce you to your "mothers group". They are a small group of fellow FTMs that all live in the local neighbourhood and had kids at the same time.
My DS is 15months old and our original group of 7 still catches up every week. It's a wonderful resource.
So campaign hard to still be included in a mothers group if you end up arriving after bubs is born.
