I have just gotten my positive pregnancy result! This is my second time round after having a pretty awful experience with DD1. This was because of a terrible OB so I am keen to be much more informed before deciding on an OB this time around.
Last time I went to Kareena Private. Although my birth was awful I found the midwives amazing and my time on the ward was great.
Can anyone make any recommendations for OBs for either Kareena, St George Private or Hurstville private. I have heard good things about Ian Simpson but otherwise I have no idea where to start.
Please PM me!!

Pm didn't work! But Dr Opperman at Hurstville Private is amazing - all my friends use him and I have been recommending him and the hospital to everyone , I had a high risk pregnancy , his mid wives, staff , secretaries were all so wonderful and I loved Hurstville private and all the nurses/mid wives there were brilliant !
See if you can pm me as I couldn't get my message sent to you!

Margaret Booth was my 1st choice but she was on holidays when I was due. Her offices are in penshurst and she works at both Hurstville & St George private.
I didn't like St George private tbh. I hated my midwife, she was an idiot. There also didn't seem to be a specific breastfeeding nurse, rather just the ward midwives helping (whereas the BF nurse at st George public is wonderful).
I have heard the post natal care at Hurstville private is great although the hospital isn't as new at St George private.

From memory about $4500 but that was 3 years ago, my health insurance covered the hospital (had to pay excess which was $500)

Dr Karen Harris at St. George private hospital is amazing! I recommend her to everyone. She really goes out of her way to make sure you have the birth you want. She was open to me having a doula present, she made sure I had a room with a tub for labour, she was open to having me birth my son on a bean bag. She even went out of her way to make sure I had midwives I clicked with. Midwives who were all for natural births. She's fantastic.
I'm now pregnant with #2 & I'm seeing Karen as well.

She made sure that the midwives were women I'd click with. She made sure they were laid back and had a sense of humour. She's incredible.
