    May I know the Ob you all went with? Recommendable? It is a big decision now as I hope to get an Ob who can handle all my silly questions.

    I had my DS2 at St V's 3 weeks ago. The nurses call bell (as a PP said) was very annoying. I also had the delivery room that has a shared bathroom- that sucked!!!! But other than that the hospital was faultless. Nice room, very clean and modern, lots of good food, beautiful city view, helpful midwives around the clock. Would strongly recommend it.My Ob was Suzana Kotevska. I strongly recommend her, too!

    Dr Nick Lolatgis only because he was my FS first.

    The other, Dr Naidoo, doesn't work as an OB anymore.

    I had both my children at St. Vincent's and LOVED it. Couldn't fault the hospital or my amazing obstetrician - David O'Callaghan. David has rooms on the Ground Floor at St. V's, but he also delivers at Freemasons. He is just divine.

    Another who had a great St V's experience, and like Siansmum, I had David O'Callaghan who was really great. I wasn't really able to fault my St V's experience. Funnily enough I was in the the room right at the nurses station my first 2 nights and didn't have an issue with noise...

    Another good thing about David is that he is actually quite cheap in comparison to a lot of other obs!

    Yes Juzz, David is certainly much cheaper than all of the other obstetricians I initially looked into, back in 2006. He also came recommended by one of the midwives at St. V's. I figured, they're the ones working with him, and if they think he's great, then that's good enough for me!

    Francis Perry was fantastic! Could not have asked for better nurses, food, advice and the breastfeeding room is brilliant as well as the physiotherapy sessions. Non judgmental nurses to help as long as you need it 24/7. They validate parking (it's directly underneath the building) and offer a weekly rate which your partner can come and go as much as they like for one price. (I think it was about $70 for a week) My OB was Susan Hiscock she was great - straight to the point, extremely thorough very calm and a great sense of humour. Pediatrician looking after bub when she arrived was David Carolane he works in the same building he was lovely, very caring. I will continue to see him as a result. I had a wonderful experience (had to have c-section). Was in a single bed for two days (I think all c-section patients have to) then moved to a double room. No shared room. I would not hesitate to go back. I just had my bub in July. Good luck!

    I've been to France's perry twice... Most recent this year. Parking is offered at discounted rate of $70 for 7 days. Birth suites (I've been in two) are large with baths. Everything is on hand from iPod dock, fit balls to heat packs. Midwives have all been lovely and respected my wishes. Maternity rooms are single or double, I've always spent first night in a single with city views and then moved to a double for remain 3 nights (I've passed on the offer if grand hyett as hubby prefers the easy of hospital). Partners and welcome to stay at both for a cost, or they can just order meals for a cost.
    Midwives wee all lovely on the floor, on does a daily morning visit, breadtfeeding room is wonderful, there is also a physio class. Meals are lovely, heaps to eat and a good rotation. There is a gorgeous courtyard to enjoy on nice day too.

    I have to check if David Callaghan delivers at Frances Perry too. Think doing the tours will help make a better decision too.

    I don't think he does. I just book with him for the second time and they only offered St V or Freemason.
    But it's worth asking. He's a great OB at a great price
