Im just wondering if anyone has birthed as a private patient in a public hospital & whether it was worth it?
Im birthing at the rbwh & currently through the private practice suite. However, im having trouble understanding what I actually recieve for my money & what makes it worthwhile.
Ive seen my ob once for an appointment that lasted all of 10 minutes, as well as having the booking in appointment with the midwife. We cant contact our ob with questions but can contact his midwives.
When I give birth the ob wont necessarily be there & I have no idea if the midwives will be or if we'll get someone we've never met. Ill get a private room if one is available but if not ill go on the ward.
I cant really see that we are getting much that public patients wouldnt get. So now im getting really worried that we've chosen the wrong option & should have just gone public. I dont want to pay heaps of money if we dont get anything for it.
