    Default Changing of hospital? Mercy or Rockingham

    Hi all, we have just found out we are expecting baby #2 But we are trying to decide where to have it. Our first was at mercy hospital and we couldn't fault them. My in laws live in r/ham though so it would be easy for them to have the 1st whilst in hospital with #2. We also live in the country so either way we will have to travel. Has anyone been to Rockingham and can give me some reviews. Good, bad or should we just stay put? Thank you

    My two sisters had their little ones at Rockingham and praise it continually. I'm due in Feb and I'm going there. They have been very good so far for me. I was there the other day with gastro and they looked after me really well. I was seen immediately, and they kept me informed the entire time... I also have a fantastic.ob

    Default Changing of hospital? Mercy or Rockingham

    I have only been to rockingham so nothing to compare but I was happy with the middies and everything in general. My only complaint would be that I kept having to ask for my sheets to be changed because of heavy bleeding. They run tours (twice a month i think?) so maybe check them out?

    Woodbridge is located right across from Rockingham hospital and is where most women who are birthing at that hospital go for their midwife and OB appointments. Working at Woodbridge are the 2 OBs that deliver at Rockingham and also the head midwife.
    If you want to birth at Rockingham I suggest you call Woodbridge and make an appointment to see either the midwife or an OB.

    I have given birth to my children in Rockingham and can't praise it enough. I loved it there. I also see a Dr at Woodbridge who delivers at Rockingham.

    My ob is at parentis but was at Woodbridge before that. His name is Dr bouverie. If you intend on using him, I recommend you make an appointment asap as he is very busy and popular. He tried to be there for all his patients during the birth. My first appointment was delayed an hr because he announced to the waiting room he had to "go celebrate a birthday". He has done it several times, but always tries to fit everyone in before or after, and his receptionist will normally ring and inform you if he has advanced warning. He is, however, not qualified to handle anything other than a natural birth, as far as I'm aware. He will get a specialist in for forceps, vacuum or c/s, but will still be there for you during the birth.

    Sorry about the late reply. Silly phone doesn't always show the threads I've participated in...
