    Following. My 2 DD's have been delivered by my wonderful OB at Westmead Private, unfortunately I cant bring him with me now we've moved down here.
    So interested in hearing the views of others of local private OB's.

    If you want to choose your OB, you'll need to go private. In the public system, you'll see a team of midwives and whichever OB happens to be working on the day you deliver, is who you'll see.

    I can recommend Dr Wong at St George Private and Dr Opperman at Hurstville Private.

    PM me if you need any further info x

    Dr Opperman is the best - but is only at Hurstville Private

    They are both fantastic OB's. Each of them has lots of happy patients

    I saw Queeny for my first two and now again, for my third and final bubba.

    Agree with Dr Opperman. He has seen me through a live birth, late m/c & still birth & he was amazing each time. If we get pregnant again we will use him again even though it's a 40 min drive. I delivered at St George but we might look at Hurstville next time.
