Looking for some advice with the maternity care choices @ Eastern Health. I'm only a few weeks pregnant but need to choose asap so we don't miss out on what we want..
We had our first baby a few months ago but our experience will be totally different this time – Our beautiful angel was stillborn, she passed a few days before she we gave birth to her and I still cry nearly every day. I'm so excited to be pregnant again but scared and confused about what care we should choose or if we should go back to the same hospital.
We had GP care with our first because all the other “choices” were full – we gave birth in the Family Birth Centre @ the Angliss (well we were transferred to the delivery room for an epidural but she came before we could have it, then back to the FBC afterwards) so the space was really nice with double bed, spa and fit ball but I don't think they will allow us there this time round as were no longer considered “low risk”.
Has anyone birthed at Box hill? or both? and what's the comparison...?
Also is anyone aware of the ballpark cost of Public Ob care rather than GP or hospital care (bulkbilled)??
Thanks!!!! My head is spinning....
