We went private as we have 0 trust in our public hospital after my husband went in with a ruptured appendix and ended up with collapsed lungs and being left in emergency for 6 hours before being transferred to the hospital where they could do the surgery.
I'm very glad we did! I love my ob he is wonderful and I liked the continuity of care from one dr. The hospital was wonderful, my husband could stay with us, in a double bed & our own room & given I was in hospital for 7 days that was invaluable. Our paediatrician was fantastic. I never had to wait to see the midwives when I had a couple of issues out of hours.
We will be going back again when we have #2.
