    Default Anybody delivered at Logan Hospital?

    I do not have health insurance so I will have to go public. My catchment area is for Logan and I would probably have to go to Logan Hospital.I am just wondering if any of you ladies have delivered there and what was the hospital like? Did you have a good experience (as good as can be expected anyway)
    I'd love to read any information on this hospital , thanks

    I had a horrible experience at the logan, but it was a difficult birth with lots of complications.

    My best friend had her baby at the logan and she cant praise them highly enough.

    I've heard lots of good things about the Logan hospital. I agree that every hospital has good and bad stories.

    I went for a tour there and ended up choosing the gc hosp. I found Logan super busy, a bit run down and didn't like the way there was a waiting room for Nanna etc in the same areas the birth rooms so they can hear you screaming etc. the corridors were packed with stuff, you shared a toilet with 4 and a shower with 8ppl which I think was the thing that made my decision. Chock a block with women, they average 10 babies a day. And you could take you're family down to the outdoor area but not new baby...:what:

    I should add this was for baby 2, had baby 1 at Redlands with a private room and shared bath room. Gc was in my catchment too.

    But definetly go for a look, it will probably ease all your fears and really all hospitals are much alike.

    i was in the logan hospital for a non pregnancy matter and i thought they were amazing however, i have seen the maternity ward from my brothers gf's birth and i did not like how cramped it was. i am located very close to the logan hospital and i am also looking at redlands i guess because of the rooms and i hear they have more to offer during labor. though i don't know too much about catchment areas, i don't even know if they would accept me... which makes me feel uneasy because then my only option is logan
