Morning all! I am 15 weeks pregnant and have already had a son (2 years old) in Public Hospital (Redlands), I was satisfied with them but would love to have my husband stay the night (I had issues post last c/section and would have loved to have him there to help out) and the only option is Private stay?
My questions are: Can I go public (no cost) for prenatal services (scans/blood tests) and then pay for a Private OB (which I would have to have if I go private hospital - is that correct?), I read somewhere that maybe the Private OB's do a shared care with GP to lower costs? I have been given a quote for elective c/section at Greenslopes - but am wondering what the extra's will be: peadatrician / anesthesasist ...? What are the average costs for these? And if it is a c/section will OB be there (extra cost?). Im so confused! What other costs should I be aware of ? Has any one had good reviews re. Greenslopes by the way? Is anyone aware of public maternity hospitals in Brisbane/Logan area that will allow partners to stay the night? thanks and sorry for so many questions!
