    Default advise & thoughts much needed

    Hi all, my partner & I are expecting our first child. I am waiting to do my dating scan to confirm how far along I am but it is estimated at 6 wks. My friends & family are all interstate due to a work relocation so I am looking for any & all advice as I don't yet want to break the news to everyone till we are further along.

    There is a lot of things to consider regarding doctors, hospitals, Ob's etc & to be honest it's all very overwhelming especially not being familiar with the area we live in and having my first GP visit one to confirm a pregnancy.

    We have private health & are to use this.

    If anyone has any recommendations / directions, wise words it would be much appreciated.

    Is Nepean private a good hospital?

    We are in the West Sydney area.

    I'm expecting our first child too & moved here a couple of years ago. It's a little bit daunting when you don't have family support.

    First of all book in with an obstetrician ASAP! I have been seeing Dr Cropley but I have heard most of the obstetricians in the Penrith area are good.

    I'm booked in with Nepean Private & recently did their maternity ward tour (Sundays at 2pm) and I was very impressed.

    Good luck with your pregnancy journey xx
