    Default recommend me an OB? South East subs melbourne

    Hi Ladies
    I am 6.5 weeks along with no 2. I went public with no 1 and would prefer NOT to with no 2 as I have high BP and delivered small for dates. I dont mind who delivers me but I want good care during my preg.
    I am in pakenham but will probably deliver at Monsh again. We have PHI but I dont think it covers preg- if it has basic hospital cover does that mean I can stay at jessie mac does anyone know? also.. can anyone explain to me about the OB care? if I book in at monash do i still need to attend their appointments? What does the OB generally charge? Sorry I am a bit clueless TIA xxx

    I'd highly HIGHLY recommend Gareth Weston. He is amazing. I'd call your PHI company and ask them all your questions - at least you will get the right answers. Most obs are around $4-5k and you get a bit back from medicare.

    David Simon and Lal McLennan in Warragul are AMAZING! And Warragul is only 20 mins from Pakenham.

    I second euan Wallace at monash/Jessie Mac I'm currently seeing him and he is lovely. I'm high risk due to having a previous prem and feel very comfortable being looked after by him. I'm doing public thou but with phi i think all the ob visits would be at his rooms near the hospital and if he thought u were going to have other complications he would see u as a high risk pt in his maternal fetal medicine clinic at monash otherwise u would deliver at Jessie Mac. I'm not sure on the costs thou if u like I can pm u his private rooms number he is in Dixon st just near monash hospital

    Hi Sehan
    Yes Please, can you PM me the details?
    Boost- I will probably have to deliver at Monash due to high BP but thanks anyway.
