I'm a newbie to these forums, and am pregnant for the first time at 37, after a very long few years of fertility treatments including IVF. I'm due in November, and am so happy! But at the same time, anxious, daunted and confused.
I've been looking online on NSW Health, Medicare, BUPA sites for information about pregnancy management and birth options but without much luck.
So here I am - if anyone can help, it would be much appreciated.
1. I'm undecided about going public vis private in a public hospital (RPA). I've read a lot in the forums about this debate and broadly understand the differences, but because my baby is an IVF baby, and because it feels like I've been waiting for ever for this baby, I wonder if I'd feel better going private to have continuity of care. My specialist at the IVF clinic also gave me recommendations for OBs (but for RHW), so I think he would prefer that I go private. Other IVF mums out there, did you go public or private?
2. Does anyone have recommendations for OBs for RPA? I've been reading about Dr Surya Krishnan, would love to hear from anyone who has seen him. Please PM me.
Thanks in advance.
