I can't get a straight answer from my doctor's office or the hospital, they just keep telling me about MBS item numbers.
    That's because each health fund covers things slightly differently. If you have the item numbers then ring your health insurance provider, they should be able to help you.

    Yes, as a private patient you have the same OB for the pregnancy and then the birth, though of course the OB you choose can determine in which hospital you deliver. I see my OB in his office in Subiaco for appointments, if I had gone public I'm sure I would still have been seen by excellent doctors at KEMH but not always the same one.

    If you call a couple of the obstetricians there, you should be able to get a figure easily. I remember when I signed my financial consent for my ob it had the cost of a standard and c section delivery for uninsured patients on it so those figures should be easy to access. Good luck
