    I haven't had a baby yet, but I'm going with midwives hopefully at a birth centre because I want minimal intervention and a not so clinical environment. I guess it depends on what sort of birth you want!

    Yay I got my 3+ today. I was trying to hold out until 5 weeks so that I would def get a. 3+ and not have to buy another one but I caved and tested this morning at 4w6d... But I'm super happy with that

    I went private with DD. I liked having the same ob for all appointments (except when she was on leave), my ob did a scan at every appointment which was reassuring. I didn't want to have a baby and be sent home within 24 hours. The birthing suites at the hospital I went to were lovely, not clinical at all. Some had baths,though I had no desire to be in a bath

    Thanks @Lil Smurfy.
    That's where I'm coming from too - I like the idea of seeing the same person all the way through. I feel more comfortable with an OB but some people have suggested it's a bit extravagant for a low risk preg when there are perfectly good midwives "that will do the same job for free".
    Thanks for your input too @the scientist, I live remotely so do t have the option of a birthing centre

    Haha I like the idea of going home straight after birth. If it was safe I would have a home birth, but I like the idea of the hospital being attached to the birth centre just incase.

    I think it really depends on you and what type of birth you want

    I've had public for all three children with midwives, but stayed in hospital to establish feeding etc. I've had really great experiences, fast and uncomplicated births though. Where I live, we see the same midwives and obs so get to know them all.
    Tricky choice go with your gut feeling! Xx

    Same for me. I going to be trying to get into a group midwifery program where there is continuity of care with the same midwife throughout and a guarantee that my specific midwife or one of 2-3 others in her group (who I will also be familiar with) will be at the birth.
    I don't see any reason to pay for private. Mind you, I'm also a first timer so I can't actually give any feedback on how this approach will go!

    A group midwifery program sounds great! I wouldn't mind it if I knew that I could get familiar with them and could have that continuity of care. It's hard as a first time mum to know what to do!

    My other issue was that the hospital i'm zoned to, is in a dodgy area, and there's no way I'd want to give birth there

    I had milk supply issues (which they only discovered on day 3), so was glad to be in hospital. Mostly the midwives were helpful with helping to establish feeding, except for the midwife who told me I was starving my child, and a male midwife who thought 3:00am was a good time to start teaching new breastfeeding positions
