    Don't always use c section rates as an indication either, there are many many many women who want c sections and that option isn't available to them if they went public ( without jumping through hoops) so opt for private in saying that there's one oby at my private hospital that has a high "emergency" c section rate ( for those playing at home it's dr M.u.5.4 at gr33n5l0p35 )

    The whole quick to c section totally puts me off to be honest.

    I am in Baldivis, so pretty sure we are either Madurah or Rockingham zoning
    I had my kids at SJOG Subiaco and KEMH.

    I've heard good things about Rockingham but have no personal experience.

    My advice would be to go and do a tour at both Rockingham and Peel and ask lots of questions.

    If I had been a normal, low risk patient I would have gone with midwife based care but it's a very personal choice.

    Sorry I deleted my post - wasn't sure if I was going to get ripped apart for it and couldn't be bothered with it if I did lol!

    Anyway you saw it! So yeah - I'm not super convinced. If you are after low intervention - then I'd suggest checking out your public hospitals and also seeing if they have a group practice type arrangement.

    Default Public v private

    For me I chose shared care with my gp. So week 14 and 36 appts were with the public hospital and all the rest were with my lovely gp.
    All free after 20w and had to pay out of pocket for scans.
    She didn't turn up to the birth like an ob does. The appts were just the same as seeing an ob. Bp, fundal height, scripts, Doppler etc etc.
    I stayed 3 nights in a single room in public- all free.
    Even if I has chosen private, an ob would not of made it to the hospital in time.

    I went private with all 3 and wouldn't have done it any other way. My ob knew my history and delivered all 3. He also gave a discount with the second and third. I liked knowing who would be delivering my babies, I liked that I had my own room etc. The staff were amazing and the hospital really clean. To me it was worth the minimal out of pocket, actually I had none with ds3. I've worked in public health for 17 years in numerous hospitals, just didn't want to go public.

    So can you go & tour the hospital even though your not pregnant?

    I have been talking about this with my girlfriend today & she is weighing up the same issue, maybe we can go look together 😊

    Absolutely!
    They usually have the tours every weekend and you just turn up, no booking required. Just check on the hospital websites.

    We went to one and we both left feeling like a waste of time. I didn't get to ask all the questions. After the tour, we still didn't get the info of why we should come here. We didn't bother to go to other hospital tour after that.
