    Default Re: How much did you pay for your c section in private?

    On another note I also have a double uterus and was told I could never birth naturally yet I had DD1 natural(induced though) and my other 3DD's c/s for different reasons.
    How exciting someone with the same condition

    This is what I was going to suggest. Ask your OB if he works at a public hospital too, then you would only have to pay him his fee - the hospital part would be free.

    Also as a PP stated, you run a huge risk going private with no cover. If a complication were to occur to either you or your baby, your bill could be astronomical. You may not be in a position to transfer immediately to public and will be liable for any and all costs involved.

    I have an appointment with my ob next Tuesday. Hopefully he can do what you are suggesting because im not fussed on staying on public what im fussed with is who does my c section
