    Default Hello from Central Coast NSW

    Hi all

    New to Bub hub, even though it was around when I was pregnant 5 years ago. I'm a mum to a 4 yr old boy, and we are currently planning on soon attempting to have another baby. Having went private with our son in 2011, we are weighing up the pros and cons about doing the same next time. Has anyone had any recent experiences they'd like to share from having their baby at Gosford Private? What are the costs of OBGYNS on the coast for pregnancy management? Thanks - D

    Hi!
    I can't help you with what the hospital is like because I haven't had my baby yet (can let you know in January), but with regards to OB fees I am paying $90 per appointment with a $1500 management fee. When I researched the management fees were all about $1500-2000 which was heaps cheaper than having my last baby in Sydney.

    Hi. I'm on the northern end of the coast so I'm kinda in the middle of Gosford Private & Newcastle Private. I ended up choosing to go to Newcastle as I preferred to OB up there and I liked that it was so close to John Hunter that has lvl 3 nicu if needed. I had my son nearly 2 1/2 years ago and couldn't fault the service at the hospital. And my OB was amazing. Planning on going there again this pregnancy (nearly 7weeks). OB costs $180 for initial appointment. $90 each appointment thereafter. $2600 management fee.

    Dr Oliver Brown. He has a wonderful bedside manner and always takes the time to listen to concerns and explain any questions. Every appointment you are seen by his midwife and then him (he scans at every appointment). Highly recommended!
