RWH Public system

I had my last 3 boys at the Royal Women's Hospital in Melbourne. I had pretty good experiences (I've had 4 CS's) but have to say that going publicly means you have little to no control over who you see but I didn't have to pay a cent. I had a room to myself and was treated very kindly by all nurses.
Advice to anyone having their first baby, and especially their 2nd baby, be proactive and tell the nurses if you don't know where to find stuff like spare blankets, pillows, pads, ice... that kind of thing. I had bad experiences with over engorged breasts when my milk came in and as a 2nd time mum was pretty much left to my own devices. When i had my 3rd child I had learnt my lesson and made sure I told the nurses that I don't cope so well when my milk comes in and made sure I knew what to do to help ease the pain and where to find ice and heat pads etc.
I hope this is helpful. RWH facilities are lovely.
