Hi Adelaide friends, I know this isn't a testing group or anything but I've just got my bfp for our first baby! Would love any local tips or recommendations for places to get (affordable) gear, hospitals/birthing centres, etc 😊
Congratulations!!!! how many weeks are you?
I can definitely recommend the women's and children's hospital if you want to go public. Put your name down for Midwifery group practice as you will get one midwife the entire time who will be at the birth. If you don't get in with them, make all of your midwife appointments as the first appointment of the day. If you try for lunch time etc, you can wait hours to be seen, but morning appointments, there's no one ahead of you so you generally don't wait.
I would stick to target, big w and kmart for baby gear or purchase online. Don't go to baby bunting - their service is rubbish and they only stock expensive brands.
Any other questions, ask away or feel free to PM me
Congrats!! I DO not recommended baby bunting at all terrible service. We got everything from baby junction at magill they were so lovely. It depends what you want (carrier etc). I did a huge lay by. And got the other bits from target, Kmart etc...
Now that I've had two kids I would buy second hand haha!! What area do you live in? You will get zoned for your hospital. You have to call the pregnancy line
I can't give any recommendations re public hospital as I had my baby private but as others have said it will depend where you live.
If you don't mind second hand then there is a regular baby and kids market where people have stalls to sell second hand baby goods. You can find the dates here: http://babykidsmarket.com.au/markets...php?job=ww&s=s
Also a friend of mine bought very cheap packs of baby clothes on gumtree and eBay. We bought our change table from eBay (brand new) for $85.
For new stuff keep an eye on target, big w and Kmart especially for clothes and when they have specials (we got our cot on clearance from target online this year for $99!!). Bonds online always have specials too and I've had some good deals from outlet shop for kids online shop too. Babies r us and baby bunting have sales on right now with some good deals and baby bunting will price match for any Australian online price too. Good luck!
Flinders medical center has always been amazing for us. Congrats! X
