Hi Ladies, does anyone know, place of birth on birth certificate is where your hospital (suburb) is or where you live??? Sorry for silly question, im not from here. It is an important consideration for me in choosing a hospital...For example, if i had my baby in Peninsula private would birth certificate say place of birth "Frankston Vic"??? I live in SE Melbourne. Thanks

Suburb of hospital.

My boys were born at Cabrini, so their birth certs state Malvern.

As ppl have said, but I'm just curious why this is an important consideration for you when choosing the hospital?

Suburb of hospital. And big LOL at it being a consideration, why does it matter if your kid was born in Frankston? I don't think future employers are going to look at his/her birth certificate and automatically discount him/her for being born in a bogan suburb.

Lol. Hospital suburb. Interestingly, my girls were born in different hospitals 5 minutes walk from each other on different sides of a major road in Melbourne. According to their birth certificates, they were born in different suburbs. On dd3's it just says the city, not the suburb.(different state)

You are kidding right, god I hope you are kidding. You would seriously choose the hospital based on the fecking suburb???!!!??? Oh and IMO if you are contemplating Peninsula Private as your private hospital I am assuming it is the closest to you I wouldn't stick my nose too high up in the air if I was you OP you have a long way to go until you reach the class you are after.
Oh and the private hospitals around here are small and low risk what the hell are you going to do if you have to go to Frankston Public?  Best you book into an inner city hospital if I were and move so you can get a good inner suburb in case you need to go public.

I'll freely admit I did pick my hospital so DD's birth location looked better...  ph34r.gif

ETA for more detail. First off I wouldn't use my local private as I heard enough horror stories, the next one on was full of relatives and I didn't need my rello nurses dropping in during labour, so I went with the 3rd option .

Thanks for your replies ladies, hospital suburb then. Didn't mean to offend anyone, I just want what's best for the child, I work hard and want the baby to have a better life what's so wrong with that? I wouldn't judge anyone by where they were born but i know how cruel this world is...If I pay for private, I get to decide on where it is, yes I'm into details xo

Wow. In 39 years no one has ever checked the suburb on my birth certificate.

Birth certificate also lists where parents were living.

Wow. I don't think the suburb of birth is going to have a lick of difference to your kid having a better life. By the time your kid is an adult, Frankston might be quite well to do. Not that it will matter at all. Mum was born in Fitzroy. It was a working class borderline slum in 1950. Now it is one of the most sought after suburbs in the state. You need to reassess what makes a 'better life'. Here's a hint: it isn't where you were born.

OP your concern, while touching, is really, really, really barking up the wrong tree.

I was born in a country hospital in a town that used to make international lists as the 'ugliest'... for people who know where it is, and what it is they will actually laugh out loud when I tell them my birthplace - it's that bad.

I have made a lovely life for myself, post graduate education, travel, wonderful friends, wonderful life.

In spite of being born in such an 'ugly' place I have also managed to make a career out of aesthetic concerns - both teaching art and being a practicing (mildly successful) artist - so it didn't obviously sink into my brain and despoil it!

I'm confident it would not have been any different if I had been born in the hospital my elder sister was (different 'nice' city - Mum had pre eclampsia and was sent away to have the baby in a bigger, better equipped hospital)



Your place of birth is a curiosity on your passport - nothing else.

I hope this post isn't seriously but...

My place of birth on my birth certificate is a "posh" Sydney suburb and I can promise you it's made no difference in my life  and no one has ever commented on it!

PP have already said it. The location of the birth is not giing to impact on the future wellbeing or social standing if your chilld in any way. If they happened to meet someone who was as superficial as to base their opinion of someone based on this, then I wiuld hope you will have equipped your child with the skilks to deal with this and to challenge such pathetic points of vuew.

Choose the hospital based on what they offer and what your pregnancy requires. Location won't matter when you are in mid-labor and I am sure your future child will not need counselling to get over the suburb that they were born in.

OP, since we don't get it, why or how exactly do you think this matters?

Wouldn't the level of medical care be a more important consideration if you want what's best for the child?

I look forward to following your posts in the Baby Names section, should be fun.

No one has ever asked me where I was born. It hasn't affected any decisions, major or minor, in my life, or influenced people negatively or positively.

My children were born in Malvern because that was the closest private hospital to me at the time. I wasn't living in Malvern (approx 30 minutes away actually) but private hospitals are few and far between out my way.

I really don't think it's of any import to anyone. I've never even had a passport official look at my place of birth and comment at all. It's just not important. At all.

Edited to fix silly mistakes.

Given that I didn't know the answer to that question then it obviously didn't matter to me!

That is the most bizarre reason I've heard for ruling out a hospital!
