    I just looked up my notes...
    The number for the central booking is 1300 521 319. Just explain that you have a booking at Angliss but wish to transfer it to Box Hill. They do the rest.

    I did. As did the majority of women that i know who birthed there.

    I would not recommend that anybody go there, but if you are please take a strong doula or independent midwife. The hospital has a history of forgetting that women have human rights, including the right to refuse treatment.

    I had all of mine at Box Hill & had brilliant experiences. The wait times were insane but I was under specialist care with both pregnancies. Most people I know who went through box hill also had good experiences.

    I transferred due to moving house, from Box Hill to Monash Clayton (for my second birth). I was about 18 weeks and it was pretty easy. Due to being that far along I wasn't able to have midwife led care, but instead had to see obstetritians (public system). The waiting times were pretty bad 1.5 - 2 hrs), but my experience there was good so I don't have any complaints.

    I'm sorry you experienced this

    I also had a traumatic birth experience at the RWH but it was not down to them, and I had an overall positive experience, and would def go back. I don't know anyone who had a negative experience there (not saying there aren't of course - but there are good and bad experiences everywhere).

    I actually did have a private midwife though so this may have helped.

    I went through the midwife program there with both of my pregnancies (didn't have my second there due to moving at 38weeks pregnant) and couldn't fault them. They were supportive and completely backed what I wanted to due. As you have said I think everywhere is going to have good and bad experiences.

    I have spoken to Eastern Health and my only option at the Angliss hospital is GP care, Box Hill Hospital is completely full so thats a no.

    I am going to do a tour of the Angliss on sunday and see what I think...what are peoples opinions on GP only care up until the birth??

    I am currently on hospital based care at the Royal Womens and although I see someone different everytime I do like the idea of seeing Midwives.

    I had private Ob care with my first, midwifery group practice care for my second, and this time i'm just seeing my GP. To be completely honest, the only difference i can see between them all is price!
