As it's through a public hospital I would assume you would be under public care but with a private midwife. You would certainly be able to claim on Medicare for their services and possibly private health but that I'm not too sure about. It's a great service for women who want their own midwife.

Even if you are going public I saw a private ob for all pregnancy care as a public patent. Cost me $200 management few and $70 a visit. It was worth it for me due to complications and then delivered under public care. Was the best money I spent.

I was out of pocket around $5k for private even with full health cover. That was for ob management fees, regular appointments (some shared care with gp), paed visits in hospital and excess. I was quoted an extra 2k out of pocket if i needed a csect.
Hosp fees would be $5-10k that insurance covered. So you could be looking at 10-15k out of pocket minimum.
without cover, if there are complications you're taking a huge risk as you could have to pay for full nicu, intervention, care for bub too. could be $10's if not $100's. A huge cost and risk for a few nights stay. I'd shop around for a public that allows a partner to stay.

I went mater public and I was told if I shared a room that I could have a 'support person' stay. I ended up with a csection and my own room and had a friend stay with me.

That's awesome that some public hospital let a support person stay.

At our hospital support persons can stay in shared rooms provided the other woman in the room is happy. Downside is the support person has to sleep in a chair. Not the best, but better than nothing!
