I have heard some horror stories of treatment at public hospitals especially at the busy public ones. A friend of mine was not given a bed and she was in excruciating pain (they didnt have a bed at that time). This is going to be my first and am scared to go through any pain (cant withstand pain) without any assistance. Private does cost around up to 9k which is something to think about on the other hand public is free and we are bit tight on money. What should I do? How was your experience with a busy public hospital. I am thinking of going to WEstead
