Hi girls, I've done a lot of reading but I'm still finding myself confused with the differences between private and public. We have private health insurance so that's not an issue. From what I understand, if we had a baby through the public system, can we only go to a hospital we are zoned to and not any public hospital we wish? In the public system, for each appointment do you go to the hospital and see a different obstetrician each time? Or do you see a different midwife each time? Do you get the same amount or less appointments in the public system compared to private?
If we were to go private we get to pick our hospital & obstetrician & we see the same ob for all our appointments in their rooms?
Can anyone clarify if I'm understanding right? I don't understand how the public system works and who you would see at each appointment? I'm trying to justify spending the extra $$$ on private. So many decisions! Any advice or information you can give would be appreciated.
