    Default Mt Barker SA Hospital

    Hi

    I'm currently 6wks with my second and am planning on going to Mt Barker hospital to have this one. I had my 4.5 y.o. at Burnside but as we're living in the hills now and I've heard good things about it I thought it makes more sense to go to Mt Barker.

    Has anyone had experiences there that they'd like to share? I'm particularly wondering whether to see the obstetrician Dr Klomp as a private patient or what the other public options are ie. GP shared care or is there a Midwives clinic/team.

    Any advice will be appreciated

    Hi, I was under the care of Dr Klomp last year with my son, who was stillborn at 21+2 weeks. His care, compassion and professionalism during and after the pregnancy was beyond exceptional and I highly recommend him to anyone. I was booked into Mt Barker hospital (but Bub ended up being born at Flinders), we had the tour and it looked to be a great facility. All the best for your pregnancy.

    I have referral to Klomp. I have heard only good things about him. I have heard some past mixed reports on Mt Barker as a hospital but I've heard it's gotten really good. I am really in two minds. We can choose between Flinders and Mt Barker. I like the idea of one OB but cancelled my PHI between bubs, First baby was at Calvary which we loved. Not an option this time. Flinders is good if you have trouble of any kind but you don't get your own room and the pre-preg care is crap (see different OB's everytime and really long waits). I wish Stirling was still a maternity hospital. My preg was very uneventful and birth ok so will probs go MtB if I like Klomp. Good luck!

    Hi Hopeful Doris

    I'm sorry to hear about your stillborn son, no one should have to go through that. I have met Dr Klomp a couple of times and he delivered my sister's babies and she was very happy with him. My concern with him after having a previous miscarriage was that he has that his personality/sense of humour might come across as a lack sensitivity if something like that happened again, so your comment has been very helpful, thank you.
