    Default Help trying to choose doctor in Melbourne

    Hi bubhub community. Hoping to get some help deciding on who to go to for my 1st pregnancy in Melbourne. I'm 35 and looking for active birth with a dr that is going to do what is in the best interest for me and recovery (and the baby goes without saying). I'm a little concerned about injury cause in childbirth when Drs maybe rush or force VB. I've been given 2 recommendations Emily Olive and Karen Williamson. Any advice or feedback would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

    If you're looking for an active birth I would highly recommend a private midwife over an obstetrician.

    Oh thanks. I've heard they are great for VB but also that they may sometime avoid c-section when maybe it would have been the better option for mums recovery? Anyone been to Emily Olive or know what she is like?

    I had the most fabulous obstetrician - David O'Callaghan. He delivered both my children and I cannot speak highly enough of him. He delivers at St. Vincent's Private and Freemasons. He is so approachable and I always felt like I was in the very best of care. I have continued to see him for gynecological matters.
    A friend of mine recently had her IVF twins delivered by Emily Olive and thought she was wonderful.
