I am currently 12 weeks pregnant. I am booked into RPA birth centre and doing shared care with my GP. My husband and I are probably going to have to move house in the next few months and will probably be moving to a suburb that it out of the catchment area for RPA. Has anyone had any experience with this? I really don't want to have to move to another hospital!
Any advice / help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You could just not tell them, its a bit cheeky though. Make sure you put a mail redirection in at the post office so that you still get any letters they send out.
Then tell them the day you have your baby that you have a new address so that they can put you with the right mchn.

I know here in Brisbane once your booked in that's it. I moved and I'm still at the same hospital

I'm booked into A birth centre here as well and as PP said once booked in that's it. The only thing my movig house/suburb will change is home visits after the birth as the birth centre only does home visits within a 20km radius of the hospital.

I was the same - booked into RPA and moved. I told them my new address when I went in during labour. They weren't too fussed however it did make the transition to my local MCH centre a bit less smooth as I was outside their radius for the initial home visit.

I'm booked in there too, and we are also looking to move. We want to stay in the inner west, but I'd love to know what the RPAs boundaries are just in case.
I'd probably just ring them and ask - without giving your name and see what they say.
