    That sucks Wish! Which hospital do you have to go to now?


    Veritas I'm glad I only have to go to 14 weeks on the clexane, I have quite high ANA but my FS is happy to take me off after 12 weeks (increased to 14 weeks "just in case"). The thought of coming off the medications does scare me a little, especially since everything seems to be going so well being on them. I'm going to bring it up with my OB next week - she's also a FS so it will be interesting to get her opinion.

    So sorry to hear that. How frustrating Wish!! I found it so stressful booking into the public hosp antenatal clinic and also finding a Ob (still not sure which one to go with so want to keep options open)!!! The stress partly took away the joy of finding out we got a BFP!! And then to find out the midwifrey group practice fills up based on bubs due at the beginning of the month just topped it off! With my EDD right at the end of April I had no chance!

    I know what you mean orchids, we were so lucky to have the Fertility Clinic organise all the antenal clinic stuff (except the fact that it was wrong!)
    Im so confused about the midwivery program the only ones I can find are $3000 +!! Is that right?

    That seems excessive Wish - that's around what you would be looking to pay for an Ob's management fee. I didn't think it was really supposed to cost you anything going public?

    Public is free, thats the cost of a private midwife, (one or two midwives stay with you rather than coping whom ever is rostered on, staff changes every 8hrs etc) after my exp with nurses during my hospital stay, the private midwife sounds amazing but we just cant afford it!

    I tried midwifery group practice (or caseload midwifery) at a public hosp..and i understood it to be free. Its generally when a small team of 4-6 midwives work in a team to provide your maternity care throughout pregnancy, labour, birth and early parenting. It provides women with one-to-one midwife continuity of care. Because they only take 55 cases per month and it was full when I rang i'm on the waiting list,...so they offered me shared care between GP and midwife.

    That sucks that wish that you were led up the garden path... Could you "move"?

    We are going private Ob with this one, for a few very good reasons, one being I would never trust our local public! I want a vbac this time and all my reading says my chosen ob is a big supporter so fingers crossed we get there. The cost is such a turn off but I figure after the small fortune we've put into creating this child it's worth the money to bring them into the world safely and trust your care provider.

    Maybe Im looking into the wrong thing, Im booked with an antenatal clinic rather than midwives, thanks Orchids!

    Veritas
    no chance of moving unless its high risk as we didnt get time to get the maternity cover (who wouldve thought girst go we'd get lucky)

    But I have success!! In WA its called Community Midwivery WA and a domino birth. Unfortunatley its probably a bit late for me to fit in, but I tried!

    I'm doing this too Wish and it's free. But yes you need to be quick. I luckily got in in the nick of time. We've spoken to our midwife and she sounds lovely and we'll be seeing her go a tour/initial consultation at around 12 weeks. But yes you can get shared care too.

    Google midwifery group practise the public hosital or call the midwives there and see if they have a program. Our hospital has only been doing it for about a year but I hear it's been around a lot longer.

    Good luck.
