I've recently found out that I am expecting bub#1 (6wks) and am looking into OBs at the SAN hospital. I'm based on the lower North Shore so was looking into people like Dr Leung and Dr Chang as they also practice in Chatswood. I'm just wondering if anyone has used either of them before? If not, who did you use and would you recommend them?
Im finding this all very overwhelming and I don't know how I'm meant to make this very important decision with next to no info! I don't really know anyone who's got kids so don't have any personal recommendations.
Any advice appreciated

Dr Andrew Booker at the SAN is incredibly lovely (as is his partner Dr Keogh) they substitute for one another when they're away. Dr Booker goes above and beyond to make sure you are at ease and everything is explained to the level you need and is just an all round truly lovely person. Can't recommend him highly enough. All the best with your pregnancy

Im having my baby at the SAN as well and my ob is dr booker. I've only had one appointment with him so far and I'm very happy with him. I've had 2 babies at north shore private with dr Steven tan, he is also incredibly good.
dr booker is very supportive of natural births and will help me with trying for a water birth this time around. If that's something you're interested in, you should definitely consider him. There aren't a lot of obs that will do water births.
Good luck and congratulations!

me+he&she=three. I've read lots of good things about dr booker but unfortunately he wasn't available (on AL when I'm due) so I've gone with Dr Keogh instead who I'm sure is just as lovely.
Thank you so much for your recommendation. It's reassuring to hear reviews from others!

witherwings. I've not given the birth too much thought yet but I definitely won't be ruling out a water birth. Interesting that some obs don't like them! That will definitely be a question I ask Dr Keogh when I meet him.
