I'm with Nikki Whelan at the Wesley and she doesn't charge a Pregnancy Management Fee. I was with her for my first Bub and again for my second Bub. She's pretty good and I've been happy with her throughout the process. With my first child I needed to be induced due to pre eclampsia, and after 12 hours of labour he wasn't progressing, we had an emergency caesarian. All along she said there was no reason I couldn't try a natural birth, so the only time she mentioned C/S was right at the end when we needed to get him out.
I worked out the costs before booking in with her this time:
Initial incl Scan $210
Antenatal 14 visits x $100
Post Natal $60
Total up front $1670
Medicare 75% $580.45, Out of pocket $1089.55
Medicare 85% 658.20, Out of pocket $1011.80

Thanks everyone! This is brilliant!!
I can't believe the costs too.... So cheap in comparison to what we paid with our first in Victoria (we know we had the best down here).
