    Default Giving birth at Frances Perry

    Anybody given birth at Frances Perry recently?
    I had my last child via emergency cesarean at the Women's in 2014. This time I'm using Frances Perry.
    I'll be having a planned cesarean. How long can i expect to stay? At the Women's i was checked out after 3 nights and i was not ready and not well and ended up being readmitted 2 days later for another 3 days. I'm hoping to avoid that this time.

    I doubt I'll be eligible for the hotel program as myself and the baby will need extra monitoring for some health problems.

    Reviews on the facilities, staff, food?

    Thanks!

    I haven't been there personally but have had two friends give birth via c-section there. Both stayed in for 5 nights.

    I was in for 6 nights. I was ok to leave after 5 but kept us in to keep an eye on bubs jaundice.

    I lost my first when I went through Royal women's, and France's perry was so wonderful for me. Food was good, my partner was fed too (stayed the whole time but due to csection had to sleep on fold out couch) and my insurance covered him too.

    Midwives were great especially the older ones... Mary and Kerrie, really wonderful to me. Use the breastfeeding room if you need to, it's also great to escape if visitors get too much etc, and try to get some sun in the courtyard.

    Good luck!

    Also honestly I was so comfortable there that if we could have moved to the hotel we probably wouldn't have. (Well hubby would've but I was fine and that's what matters 😂)

    Hubby won't be staying with me in hospital because we'll have a 2.5 yr old at home to look after.
    And sadly I'm unable to breastfeed (breast surgeries). Do they have good facilities for bottle making and washing etc?
    I found the women's last time very good trying to gelp me breastfeed and also then when i couldn't helping with formula. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

    All the rooms are private right?

    Frances Perry is AMAZING!! loved loved loved my time there. I too had a csection and the care was brilliant. Lovely facilities and very helpful staff. Hubby stayed and after the 3rd night we were moved to a room with a double bed so hubby didnt have to sleep on the fold out bed.
