    I've been told to camp out next time lol. Normally I am forceful but I was missing dd1 and overcome with emotion. I took the go home advise as I thought we might be able to go pick her up from grandmas ( DH said no right away in car ). hindsight is wonderful

    Hi ladies, in reviving this thread as you all were so helpful with my previous questions.

    My due date is getting closer and I'm wondering if Greenslopes has Lactation consultants? Also how supportive are the midwives in helping to establish breastfeeding?

    For those who has an elective cesarean were you moved to a double bed and if so how many nights did you spend in a single?

    TIA 🙂

    Hi Mama

    I had an elective c section at greenslopes in June and I was moved to a double bed the next day.

    In terms of breastfeeding I found the midwives to be very supportive. I had loads of trouble feeding my first son and I let them know and they spent a lot of time helping me. I found there were a lot of staff on and there was always someone available to help if you needed. There was a lactation consultant when I was there. She held a little presentation for me and few new mummies in the parent lounge and then came around to see us :-)

    Best wishes

    I just want to edit to add that every midwife I had the whole time I was in, were absolutely lovely :-)

    As a first time mum they were fantastic and extremely helpful, told me to buzz anytime dd1 went on for a feed and would sit with you to get it right.
    2nd time around they were just as good but I was an old pro at it so didn't need as much help ( still feeding dd1) .

    They have a mini bf session on Tuesday's and Thursday's I think run by one of the specialist midwives. They said they can refer you to a private lc if need be but the public ones are just as good

    I couldn't fault my stay with Greenslopes in Nov 2014

    After a bit of a horrible experience going public the first time, the second time was so much better!

    My ob was Dr Ken Law, and he is so informative, friendly and just all round lovely. We booked in an elective c-section and my recovery was so much better the second time around (had c section first time as DD was breach).

    It was amazing having my DH stay the night (and he also got to see how crazy it is when in hospital and having a real real newborn lol). It was also really nice when DD came to visit with my parents, there was ample room for all !

    As I was a second time mum, the midwives let me to my own devices, but when I did request some assistance, they were always there
