    Default Experiences giving birth at Royal Women's hospital Melbourne?

    I've heard very mixed reviews of this hospital and was looking to hear some recent experiences. Would you give birth here again and if so why, if not, why not?

    Thanks

    No i would not. Too much abuse of women and babies occurs at the hospital.

    I had a very traumatic induction which ended in emergency c section. I had a high risk pregnancy throughout.

    I would definitely go there again regardless of my less than perfect birthing experience.

    I had my ds there and most of my appointments for dd there (moved to the country when I was 38 weeks pregnant). Couldn't fault them but I was in the midwife program (cosmos) which was fantastic. I ended up with an emergency c-section with ds and the care I received was great.
