Private patient in a public hospital

They can charge your health fund for your stay (which helps the hospital) and you might get a private room and possibly your choice of doctor or ob though some ob's don't have admitting/delivering rights at public hospitals so it's best to double check on that.

I wont be having an obstetrician. I chose public so I would be midwife based.

Probably just a private room and possibly out of pocket expenses

At mine it's private room if available, free parking, free tv and daily paper.

You will likely find that the only real difference will be for the hospital - they will get extra money should you use your phi.
At my hospital if a patient elects for a private admission it doesn't change anything aside from the right to choose your dr should you want to (not applicable for you) and we give out a pack that has toiletries and some vouchers for use at the cafe/gift shop.
At my work private rooms are only for medical need, private or not has nothing to do with it. This may not be at your hospital tho.
