Shared care experiences

Looking for any advice or experience on shared care with a GP and delivering in a public hospital.
My first 2 were via MGP which I loved, but I need a c sec again and so I don’t qualify for my 3rd.
Looking at shared care as an option for continuity of care, but unsure how this works and what happens when it comes time to book in the delivery and the actual delivery experience.
I’ll be delivering at either Westmead or Blacktown (yet to decide!)

I loved it, but I already knew my gp pretty well and was comfortable with her, and knew that she had a good reputation for pregnancy care. I had I think three appointments at the hospital and the rest were with her.

I loved it too!! GP for most visits and hospital once or twice before delivery. It was so much more convenient for me, GP is local and hospital is about 45min away with horror parking. With subsequent children I had to take them to each appt. so much easier with shared care!
