    Default High risk pregnancy Melbourne

    Hello, just wondering if anyone could help me.. I have been trying to book into a hospital for the past 5 weeks and having no luck! I live in Hampton East, so in sandringham hospital area however due to my bmi being above 35 they will not take me (totally understand). So my dr sent a referral to monash medical Clayton, who replied with a letter saying I am not in their area and that I need to refer to royal women's. CAlled Rwh who told me I need to go back to dr for a new referral to them as they are linked with sandy and take their high risk pregnancies. I felt happy with that as I know rwh is a large hospital and heard nothing but good things. However now they have called my dr saying I'm also not in the area and I have to go to monash (who previously declined me!!). I feel really scared and confused now. My dr is calling monash to see if she can get me in.. However now I'm not feeling so confident with them! They have done nothing but stuff me around so my next idea was to move to my partners mums house and go to frankston. Not sure if they are the best hospital for high risk preg or not though. I would love any advice! Has anyone with a higher bmi been to frankston?? Or should I just keep trying for monash?
    This just feels like a nightmare

    First of all don't take stress. You will be well looked after but yeah you will have to keep pushing your GP who can further push the hospital.

    Monash, Mercy for Women and RWH are for high risk pregnancies. Monash Clayton is the closest for you then RWH. Mercy will be too far for you.

    Your GP needs to finalize it with Monash. Monash Clayton is a very good hospital and they can manage you well. I have no idea on Frankston. Best to call the hospital and discuss (keep in mind the person you are talking to may not give a complete or correct answer, so just don't go by what they say).

    I think some responsibilities go to your local Sandringham hospital too as they are obliged to find the best care for you. Sometimes GP don't know everything, so you may need to call hospitals and discuss.


    All the best.

    Thank you for replying! Yes trying my best not to stress I have decided against the frankston idea and will go back to my dr on Monday. I may even try call sandringham and ask. I am so annoyed by the stuff around though. But best to go somewhere who specialise in the high risk preg! Fingers crossed it all gets sorted out soon. Thanks again
