Just so you know, Casey hospital has a good maternity unit. Private rooms, and many different models of care. You could also go to warragul hospital.

OP, you should be able to go to Warragul Hospital. We're moving from Ballarat to Emerald in 3 weeks so I have to transfer my care at 37 weeks and Warragul is my only option. I've spoken to them and they haven't said I'm out of the catchment

Casey Hospital don't do private rooms. I've been doing research and this was one thing that put me off as I'll be going public as a private patient. Well at least I was up here at Ballarat Base.

You should also be zoned to dandenong/monash. Monash will take you if you are higher risk.
Have you investigated seeing a private ob who admits to angliss.
As pp said warragul also is an option for you

I've had babies at both warragul and Dandenong and loved them both, both hospitals have single rooms. I was lucky enough to get a private room each time and husband's can stay with you at warragul hospital if you end up in a private room.

This is probably not going to be what you are interested in hearing, but another spin on things for you.. I have had one baby at Dandenong (planned for Casey but developed a complication and had to transfer to Dandenong. Casey Maternity unit more able now, and if that complication arose now I wouldn't be transferred), two at Casey and one recently at home through Caseys homebirth program. I know you say you really don't want to go there, but we have had such wonderful experiences through Casey. We even had the same awesome MW care for us through three of our pregnancies and births (including our homebirth). Continuity of care was fantastic. For the two births I had in Casey, for both of my hospital stays I was in a room by myself, and I am not a private patient, nor did I have complicated births.

I saw all my bills in full when I was a private patient in a public hospital (because it was my responsibility to forward to Medicare and PHI to have them paid), mine were over $10k and my daughter's were near to $250k. Obviously for my DD's case you'd be need to be in a public hospital and you'd be covered that way, but if you birthed initially at a private it'd still be the > $10k fee for you.
