    You might have more consistency with care going with a GP, than seeing different midwives every appt.

    The Angliss is pretty good.

    I thought I would post an update for anyone else who may be in a similar situation...

    I went on the maternity unit tour at the Angliss and got a really nice feel for the place. Much more relaxed and friendly than the Royal Womens, yes its smaller and a bit dated but I felt like the midwives wanted to totally meet the needs of the women and were really keen to chat about birthing plans etc.

    They also offer water birth which I would really like and have 6 single bedded rooms which is pretty good for a smaller hospital. It felt like a really nice place to give birth to my son. Another bonus was we found a free park straight away and it was a 15 mins drive from our new house!

    Anyway regards transferring hosps...once I made my decision I called the eastern health bookings line and they confirmed the booking and will send confirmation. I then made an appointment with a GP affiliated with the Angliss Maternity unit and will get all my paperwork etc sent over from the Royal Womens. I will see the GP between now and birth but the GP practice I will go to as a midwife on site too which is great.

    Thanks for all the advice etc x
