I had DD there 10 weeks ago so fairly recent experience. I was very lucky to have a straight forward birth as I had epidural which was my plan. Bf got underway quite easily so very very lucky.
I had Dr Friebe due to some fantastic reviews irl and online. I was actually quite disappointed with him tbh. I really liked him antenatally but didn't find him with me along the way during birth. Oh he poked his head through the door during labour but didn't actually provide support or encouragement during pushing.
In hospital, he saw me for maybe a minute before leaving my room each day. i wasnt able to ask questions as he stood in the door way so nit personal and attentive. Very disappointing and something that my partner and I really disliked.
North west was great overall. Nasty catering staff who took my food before I had a chance to eat as I was feeding DD. went hungry that night. And one lady rolled her eyes when I ordered a cup of tea. Seriously it was the rudest thing. But overall, I would recommend.

Can I please have feedback on Dr Sheehan please. I want to make sure I book this time with an amazing ob after PTSD and pnd from my last experience there.
Did you like the midwife appts. Are you able to request majority of appts with dr Sheehan, I just think for the fees, I'd like to see ob rather than mw.
I'm also booked in at Greenslopes but DH is adamant that its too far. Maybe an hour or a bit more in peak. Nw is 15 mins away.

I think you should be able to book the appointments with him, although his MW is amazing and much much cheaper!
If you need someone to give you a lot of reassurance and handholding, he's probably not your guy though
I'm not having any more kids, but if I was I would go back to him for #3!
