    Nope all free - only cost will be a gap for the nt scan if you choose to do it. Most public hospitals don't do this u/s so you'll need to go to a clinic to do this - hence a gap. I had an extra few scans at the hospital for various medical reasons too - no cost whatsoever

    I am so glad i am getting differing opinions. I am leaning towards public as i think i would rather midwife led care as opposed to OB. We have a new public hospital opening up near us soon, so I will definitely check it out. Does going through the midwifery group cost if going public?
    I'm planning to go private at a public hospital- with an OB and a midwife (they are a team)

    I'm not actually sure of the logistics- only because I am not sure of my birth plan (should I get pregnant).

    The OB I choose is my gyno. He has his own practice and has a team of midwives, lactation consultants, parent educators, yoga teachers, etc. He always has his own patients, and the others have theirs too.

    He pairs up with a midwife (of the patient's choosing) and they, and the patient, come up with a birth plan. So the OB or midwife can be as involved as you like. Both are there for all your appointments (every 4 wks until 28weeks, then fortnightly until 36weeks).
