For those who have chosen / booked in already, where will you be having your babies?  Will be interesting to see if any of us wind up at the same place.

I'm going to birth at Sutherland Hospital in Sydney. I had my previous two babies there also original.gif

St Andrews in Ipswich, QLD.

Main reason - it's the closest private hospital to us.

But I also had my surgery for my ectopic pregnancy there (so I was in the maternity ward for a few days) and I was really impressed with everything. The nurses for the most part were great, the food was delicious, the room was lovely, and they allowed my husband to stay with me the whole time and sleep in the room with me at night. They were also very relaxed on visiting hours, as we were in a private room. Which was very helpful.

So I'm more than happy to go back there again original.gif

I'll be going to the John Hunter in Newcastle, it's where I had DS and DD and the closest Maternity Hospital to where we are living now.

Brisbane, RBWH birth centre hopefully! If not, probably the birth suites if I don't freak out and opt for private. I'll get in to the birth centre... I just have to.

Norwest Private for me.

I think anyway! Haha. I'm a little confused but have booked for my OB who has a room there so I'm guessing that will be it. original.gif

Norwest private for me, had DS there and loved it original.gif

BeccaBoo88, your OB will give you the hospital admission forms when you see him/her. I had to make an appointment there with DS, where I paid $60 (i think) to book in.

I going to the Mercy - Heidelberg and have my preference in for the FBC. I had a midwife led birth last time (at Birralee, Box Hill) and it was amazing. Also the 24 hr discharge suits me as I'd rather be home sooner.
