I believe so. I remember reading on one of my receipts, it said no fee after 20weeks doing the shared care program. I'm assuming it's free Australia wide.
I made an appointment with my GP tomorrow, so I shall investigate!
Yeah it is quite expensive. And partner support is really important.
Fx your maternity care works out for the better.
Starting to think having my mum look after ds isn't going to work out. It's bringing back all this baggage from when I was a kid and it's obvious she hasn't changed. It's not the little minor things either, its the enotionally damaging things.
And she takes it personally every single time I do or think something different to what she did. Plus she can't even take ds to the playground for 5mins during their 1hr walk.
That doesn't sound good adorned. What kind if stuff are we talking about? Not just a choccy after lunch I'm guessing.
What would you do for care instead?
Heids, dh was a defiant no to a homebirth too. If I ever give birth again I'd love it to be in water, hospital or home, I think pushing underwater would feel so much less tear-y scary.
Nah she doesn't give him choccy fortunately. Haha
Some of its stuff she doesn't realise...like laughing when he is upset/frustrated. She does it because she thinks he is being silly/cute and doesn't realise it undermines his feelings.
Some of it has been the way she has treated me recently ("you aren't going to do that are you?" Geez thanks for the judgement) and an unwillingness to update her knowledge of stuff (she seriously thought I had made up white noise today lol). I'll come backe later...
