I’m about to have my third baby at St V’s. Can’t fault them they’ve been great and of the two it is the one my OB prefers, though she delivers at both.

They offer very similar services, much of a muchness really. So unless your OB only delivers at one it’s a bit of a coin toss. I’d had a friend unhappy with the Epworth because there were huge windows in her room and inadequate curtains so she was hot and kept being woken early by the sun. That’s the only negative I’ve ever heard (though a couple of people have mentioned it since, so if that’s likely to bother you then maybe St V’s).

Had 3 kids at St V's, different OB though. No issues, got moved to the Park Hyatt each time which was our preference. I've heard good things about Epworth too.

St Vs were faultless. 1 emergency Caesarian and 2 scheduled. Needed an extra night twice and got it by the nurses say so (signed off by doctor). Used their BF day stay clinic twice in the weeks following arrival of DS1, also very good.

 

Only small negative was the fold out bed DH had the first time. He was uncomfortable. Too bad so sad, I had a Caesar and a bed to myself thanks v much!

I’ve gone to both, they’re pretty similar but much nicer food at Freemasons delivered when you want, easier parking at st vs.

I had my elective CS (breech) at Freemasons. Absolutely loved it, I called it my hotel with drugs. I didn’t want to leave.

The obstetrician you mention was used by one of my daughters for her children at St V's.

 

If you'd like more info then I can PM you.

 

St V's is not as aesthetically pleasing as Epworth but for me that is last on a long line of requirements.
