Hi all, So today i am 5 weeks pregnant. I had a visit to the docs this morning and all is fine. We told her that we would like to have the birth at Sutherland Hospital NSW. She wrote up a referral so i was like sweet this is easy. When i rang the maternity ward, they said that because i am out of area i have to apply to have my baby there. I see a doctor in the Sydney CDB as its close to work, the lady on the phone found this strange as i dont have a local gp because i just go to the local med center and ask for first available.
So now i have to write a letter explaining why i want to have my baby at Sutherland.
My question is, has anyone else come across this and if so, what tips can you give me to be successful as we don't want our baby at Bankstown or liverpool hospital.
