Sunshinebell, King Eddie is the best hospital for maternity care, so if you end up there, you will be well cared for. I think it's negative reputation is more about the environment. Kaleeya has a great rep too!

I recently had a c section at sjog and in terms of of fees for the birth, HBF covered everything except for $170.
HBF covered the anaesthetist, the obstetrician fees, my stay in hospital for 5 nights, my husbands stay in hospital for 5 nights including all meals. From what I can tell, the $170 out of pocket expenses was for ted stockings to wear in theatre and medication ( they prescribed iron tablets as my blood showed I was a bit low).
So basically HBF covered about $10k worth of expenses.
I think some of the disadvantages of public is that you do not see an ob at each appointment and if you do, it may be a different ob at each appointment and then a different ob again at the birth. A friend of mine gave birth at king Edward, they ended up booking her in for a c section. On the day of the scheduled c section she sat at the hospital all day before they sent her home at 5. The she had to go in and have the c section the next day.
It made me feel much more confident and relaxed to build a relationship with my ob and have him there for the births.
I also think they send you home a bit early in public hospitals. Although some people like this. I stayed for 6 nights after my first child and 5 with my second. I do not agree that they should send you home before your milk comes in or before BF is established.
I would not like to share a room either. It was great to have my husband stay for the whole time I was in hospital and after 1 night they moved us to a double bed which was nice.

It's a really difficult decision! I'm struggling...thanks to everyone for sharing
Sunshinebell, if you are classed as high risk, then honestly king eddies is where you want to be. I was transferred there from the family birth centre in the middle of labour with DD as her heart rate started to decline during contractions. In the end, I had a vacuum assisted delivery because she needed to be delivered "now!"... They were exceptional... I have no idea what it would be like for prenatal care, I imagine there might be a bit of waiting if emergency cases arrived...
