    Default SJOG Murdoch Dr Holmes or Dr McKenna?

    Hi - I am very new.

    We found out I am pregnant - and with twins! We are so excited but there is a problem.

    I was booked for Dr Anna Holmes at SJOG Murdoch and it was all ok- she is going away late July to Mid August but I am due 31 August so she was happy to take me on board.

    Then we found out that we are having twins

    Because then the babies will come out earlier than 31 Aug, we are now given choices on obs.

    1) stay with Dr Anna Holmes, use Dr Mark Makenna when she is away- which also means Dr Mckenna might be delivering our babies
    2) go straight to Dr McKenna.

    We have spoken to staff at Dr Holmes and we are really happy but now we are not sure what to do.

    Will you please give me some suggestions? We are also on Medibank private so we did not have to pay any gap in hospital with Dr Holmes but I am not sure with Dr McKenna.

    We are first time parents and so not sure about anything. I was so pleased to get in to Dr Holmes.... now what should we do

    I loved Mark!
    He's a bit stand offish during the pregnancy - very straight forward and informative.
    But he was amazing in the delivery, stood warming my back at one point!
    I would see him again in a heart beat! He's quite difficult to get into! So I would if I could.

    Thank you Pipsicle.
    My DH thinks we should go with Dr McKenna straightaway so your info is great. We are to discuss with Dr Holmes' staff next week so we will see.
    Thanks again

    Hi firsttimetwin,
    I cannot recommend Anna more highly. I've had one pregnancy with her, and am due this time on 20th Aug. because I'm having a planned C after a previous section I'm lucky enough to squeak on before she goes on leave but regardless I would have wanted her as my OB. I can't speak highly enough,
    Congrats on your twins! Xx
