    Default Hospital or other options

    Hi everyone,

    I am doing shared care with my GP and Monash public hospital in Melbourne.

    I am not overly comfortable with my experience with the hospital so far, I am wondering what other options people have gone with? has anyone had experiences that were good with birthing centres or anywhere else?

    Thank you

    My experience at Monash birth centre was pretty good but it was almost 5 years ago so probably has changed a bit since then. I didn't do shared care though, just had midwife care through the birth centre. I have no complaints about the midwife team, my hospital experience wasn't so great but that was after the birth which was unfortunately an emergency c-sect. All downhill from there! I don't have anything to compare it to though, we have since moved interstate and are going private.

    My SIL had all 3 of her children at Monash and loved it.

    Did you call the birth centre directly or did you just speak to them at your hospital appointment?

    First time doing all this and they don't seem overly forthcoming with information and the appointments have been rushed.

    I don't remember exactly, I think I was asked what model of care I wanted when I rang to book my first appointment. All my appts were with birth centre, I don't know if that's the way it's still run though? Sorry I can't be more helpful 😁
