The time has come for us to start thinking about having a second baby!
We had our daughter in a public hospital (Angliss in Melbourne) we were so happy with the service we received there but we will be moving so unfortunately we fall out of the catchment area for this hospital. We will be moving temporarily to Narre Warren and then on to Officer once we build our house and I believe the only public hospital that covers these areas are Casey Hospital which I’m really not too keen on. The other hospital I was thinking about is a private hospital, St John of God in Berwick....have heard wonderful things about their maternity services.
We do have private health insurance but we are not covered for pregnancy/obstetrics. Wondering if anyone has had any experience with being admitted into a private hospital as a private patient with general cover but not covered by obstetrics?
If so, can anyone explain how this worked for them and the costs involved in a bit more detail?
