    Tagentk, we went public at Joondalup (in June) and couldn't fault them on a thing!

    The antenatal clinic was fine. We saw a different dr or midwife each time but that was alright. We're pretty relaxed people and all our medical records were there so we didn't stress about that. It gets pretty busy so there was sometimes a small wait (longest we had was about 50 minutes, average was about 30). We had a couple of small scares along the pregnancy journey (where Bub didn't seem to be moving as much) and our concerned calls were never any bother at all. Both times they were more than happy to get us in to the hospital and did ultrasounds and monitoring to make sure everything was OK. Once was on a public holiday and even then we were well looked after and the wait wasn't too long.

    Birthing side...
    Midwives were amazing. Ended up having an emergency C and our little one went into the special care nursery for a few days. Every one of the drs, nurses and midwives were lovely. We were lucky enough to end up with a private room too which isn't common in the public system. If you're prepared for the possibility of sharing a room and are ok with that, public was great. Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions. More than happy to help.

    Congratulations on your exciting news!

    Thanks heaps @postie
    And congratulations on your bundle
    Being a SOR girl most of my life I don't really know Joondalup that well.. so been second guessing myself.
    And I don't think I will have an issue with shared rooms (Heck DH & I still stay in share dorms at backpackers sometimes when we travel LOL)
    And thank for the offer, will do
