Just looking at some advices for this pregnancy in a public hopistal and first time under hospital care. My 3rd baby is due in Feb/Mar 2016 booked at Dandenong Hospital. It will be my 3rd cesarian and have to have doctors appointments (instead of midwives).
At my last appointment, I have received appalling care from this doctor. He was nice enough however sensed he wanted to go home as I was his last patient.
I understand in a public hospital you get who you get at your appointments, but what are my rights to refuse to be seeing by this doctor again? And how do I go about this?
Also, he gave me a temporary date for my cesarean which will be 29th Feb. I have raised my concern not having it on the week on my due date as I do not wish to be in labour and honestly do not like the idea of giving my child a leap day as a birth date. What are my rights in refusing a given date?
If anyone had similar experience in a public hospital I would really love to hear from you.
My next appointment is not until the new year but I want to be prepared.
Thank you a lot!
