I've just found out I'm pregnant (I'm only 5 weeks, so it's early days) with my first child, and was wondering if anyone had any OB's they could recommend on the Sunshine Coast? I live in Caloundra.
Has anybody had experience with Dr. Kelvin Larwood?
Also, has anyone had recent experience delivering at Nambour Public Hospital? I've read some shocking reviews but they are mostly from 5+ years ago.
Unfortunately I don't have private health insurance that will cover the pregnancy so I'm trying to avoid exorbitant costs, while at the same time getting the best level of care and support I can.
Thank you in advance!

Newly pregnant on Sunshine Coast & looking for OB and advice!

I had my first baby at Nambour public, but was under the care of my private ob. I had a c section due to medical issues so can't comment on the birthing suites, but the midwives in maternity were lovely. So helpful & supportive and answered all my new mum questions.
Second time round I got to have bub at the Sunshine Coast private hospital at Buderim. My ob was Kylie Isaacs again but she went on Maternity leave part way through my pregnancy. Kelvin Larwood looked after her patients. He was lovely. He delivered my 2nd bub (another c section). I cannot fault his care during my pregnancy or for the birth.

And thank you for these suggestions meredithgray, I will certainly look into these midwifery groups, it looks like a good option. Wow there is so much to learn!
