    Default Twins.. which hospital to use NOR Perth???

    Hi all, the Friday before Christmas i found out we are having twins (due in early August). They will be my third and fourth kiddies. I had my first as a public patient 10 years ago at Osborne Park hospital and it was an awful experience for me. I was a public patient. My second i had privately last year at Glengarry Private hospital and had such a good experience there.

    I'd love to have the twins at Glengarry, however the GP OB i used last time won't take me on due to twins, do i need to find a great OB (at a great price I'm sure). I've since discovered that as soon as i mention the twin word it's 'c section no ifs or butts'. I want Erhard best for the babies of course, but it's major surgery and hubby can't take time of work to help me while i recover.

    So, what I'm actually asking is, id live to hear your advise on a public hospital with a twin birth, or a great OB who will allow a natural twin birth.

    Thanks in advance!!

    You could try Craig Pennell at KEMH. He is one of (if not the best) high risk OB and very pro natural birth.

    I'm not sure since this is my first and I'm only having one but you could ring around the obstetricians and ask the question. I rang around before I booked mine.

    I had both my girls public at Joondalup hospital and whilst sitting in the antenatal clinic I seen a couple of women who were expecting twins. I had absolutely no issue with this hospital and if I ever had a 3rd I would deliver here again without a second thought.

    One word of advise stay right away from
    Joondalup hospital. You will regret it.. I went there dispite hearing all the negitivity just put it down to women whinging.. Had the worst birthing experience of my life ( to the point where staff were reprimanded for negligence) never again would I ever step foot in this sad excuse for hospital.

    If your thinking about public Kaleeha (sp?) at Fremantle took a lady with twins when I was there 5 years ago. Midwife run program so a more 'natural' approach.

    Dr Neppe and Dr Busch, my two preferred, are already booked unfortunately. I'll get in touch with KEMH and find out how long they will allow you to stay for a natural and c section birth, unless someone can tell me? Also, are the private rooms at KEMH ok?

    I'm having this baby at the birth centre at kemh and did a tour of the main hospital as part of the ante natal classes. The birthing suits were very nice in the main hospy but the post natal ward rooms are very old and small, not really what you would have had at glengarry.
    Not sure if the stay post twins are any different but stay for vaginal birth is 6-24 hrs and c-sect is 72 hrs as far as I know, however it may be different with multiple births.

    Hi I don't know if you have already chosen your hospital but I have two friends who have given birth naturally to twins at public hospitals. King Eddie being one of them. I have had two babies there and thought they were fantastic. Birthing suites are really big and nice and the rooms aren't too small at all
