Welcome may85! And to any other newbies I have missed, on the phone so harder to keep up
I think I want to go natural at Mercy birthing centre in Melbourne, it's public too so I'm not taking out OB cover on my PHI as I just want a midwife. If you need pain relief though you can, they just admit you to the actual hospital part and you birth there. I like the idea of having the two options side by side! And the feedback on BubHub seems to be really good.
