Hi - I am very new.

We found out I am pregnant - and with twins! We are so excited but there is a problem.

I was booked for Dr Anna Holmes at SJOG Murdoch and it was all ok- she is going away late July to Mid August but I am due 31 August so she was happy to take me on board.

Then we found out that we are having twins biggrin.gif

Because then the babies will come out earlier than 31 Aug, we are now given choices on obs.

1) stay with Dr Anna Holmes, use Dr Mark Makenna when she is away- which also means Dr Mckenna might be delivering our babies
2) go straight to Dr McKenna.

We have spoken to staff at Dr Holmes and we are really happy but now we are not sure what to do.

Will you please give me some suggestions? We are also on Medibank private so we did not have to pay any gap in hospital with Dr Holmes but I am not sure with Dr McKenna.

We are first time parents and so not sure about anything. I was so pleased to get in to Dr Holmes.... now what should we do

Hi there,

I have closed this topic to prevent public discussion of specific OBs as per the Forum Guidelines.
I am sure feedback would be welcome via the pm system.

Kind regards,
