Hi,

My girlfriend with the age of 22 from malta will birth on the 17th Dec this year... she has the medicare card to cover all the expenses for child birth...

Does she need to open something like a book, in the public hospital ?

Hi, Vincent yes, she need to make a booking visit at the hospital close to your home around 18-20 weeks to be officially booked into that hospital. If she is over this gestation, still can do a booking visit at the hospital then they will arrange proper follow up visits. Good luck

Hi Am pregnant now in 31 days , when I can make a booking to see a doctor in the hospital ? Last period finished in 27/7/2012 and didn't come again and I made blood test in medical center and everything alright but am vomiting everyday between 3 - 5 times what can I do? And I can't smell anything This first pregnancy for me

Thank you

Nano you can ring the hospital to try to make an appointment (you will need a referral first). Alternatively you can see a midwife or doctor in the community for pregnancy care and advice. Midwives are available at the PBB Health Centre

Hello there

I am 18 weeks pregnant and recently moved back to Sydney (Macquarie park area) from another country. I am on medicare and have decided to via the public healthcare system. Would the Royal North Shore Hospital be nearest and best place for me to go?

Thanks!

I just found out that Im moving from Croydon to Rhodes and wondering if I can still go to RPA or do I have to move hospitals. Im only 11 weeks, but want to start using the one hospital and getting comfortable without moving around to much during my pregnancy.

Hi,

I have just found out I am pregnant and am 10 weeks. I have private health insurance but I don't want to go private and be out of pocket the 4k-5k.

I live in Padstow and my local hospital Is bankstown and Auburn. I would prefer to have my baby at RPAH or POW or even the women's hospital at randwick. Can I do this as a public patient or is that a no because I am Out of area!

Any help you could provide would be great or point me in the right direction.

Jane Palmer
Apr 30, 2013 7:41am [ 14 ]

Hi Danielle - You will not be able to go to RPAH as they only accept women in their boundary. Prince of Wales is a private hospital so you need to go as a private patient to go there. You can contact the Royal Hospital for Women - they may accept women out of area.

Could someone tell me what the boundaries for RPA are? I would like to have my baby in the birth centreas our experience there previously has been great but am moving from Dulwich Hill although still staying in the Inner West Area.

Jane Palmer

Hi Vikki - I am not 100% sure of RPAs boundaries. I do know that people living in Burwood go to RPA. I hope this helps.

Hi. We are moving from UK to Sydney in March 2014. I'll be around 21 weeks pregnant by then. Don't know where to start and what to do when we come. A bit lost and scared. Just wondered if you could help with any advice on what my first steps should be when we get there ( do i need to contact nearest hospital or GP ). We already have one child born through c section ( face presentation), would I be able to give birth naturally there. Any information would be very much appreciated. Thank you

Nov 30, 2013 5:57am [ 25 ]

Hi Inga - It is a very big step moving countries in pregnancy. I understand that you are feeling uncertain. Do you know what suburb of Sydney you will be living in? If you are not too far away you can make an appointment to see me and I can go through your options and make a referral. Otherwise I would make contact with a local GP who can make an appropriate referral.

Hi. My girlfriend is nearly 9 weeks pregnant, and by a bit of bad luck we are due to be flying to Sydney from the UK (where we live) to visit family for 3 weeks over christmas exactly when her 12 week scan is due. The window for the scan starts on Dec 28th/29th. We will be staying in the Clareville / Avalon area, can you recommend how we can best proceed to get this scan booked in? Just discovered the date issue this morning so frantically trying to work something out today! We'd be hugely grateful for any info/advice you could offer. Many thanks.

Hi Bill - you will need a referral from a midwife or doctor here in Australia to organise the ultrasound. I would suggest getting in contact with a midwife or doctor close to the area you will be staying. They can advise you which ultrasonographer that they prefer. You should be able to book the appointment for the scan before you leave on your holiday and get the referral once you are here. I hope this helps

Dear Jane

My question is if we move residence AFTER booking a public hospital for birth, are we still allowed to birth and notify the hospital management Or go through the whole process of booking again. Thanks

I had IVF from an overseas hospital and now I am 24 weeks pregnant with twins ( I am Aussie citizen). I am still in overseas and they advised to travel back to Australia around 28/29th weeks. I live in Sydney area (Old Toongabbie). Which hospital I need to go upon my return from overseas? Is public system okay for twin pregnancy?

Jane Palmer
Feb 8, 2014 6:47am [ 33 ]

Hi Sasi - Westmead Public Hospital is your local hospital. It is a level 5 hospital (the highest level) with appropriate facilities for giving birth to twins. You can go either as a public and private patient. You can choose to go through the public clinic which is no cost through Medicare care. Or choose a private midwife who works with a collaborative obstetrician (call 9890 7755 and ask to speak to me if you'd like to find out more about this option)or just an obstetrician.

Feb 23, 2014 10:07am [ 35 ]

Hi Cindy - The nearest hospital is the Royal Hospital for Women at Randwick. You will need to see a doctor (general practitioner) or private midwife for a referral to the hospital. They will explain how to book in. Sorry you'll have to ring the hospital to find out the costs.

Hi Everyone

My wife is 25 and she will give birth around November-December. We have Private Health Insurance so we want to go Private Hopsital care and the closest hospital that offers private care seems to be Canterbury. Just wanted to know how the care and facilities are for child birth. Does anyone have any experiences or stories about the care and facilities at Canterbury Private?

Thanks everyone

Hi Jane, I live in Eastwood, and I gave a birth to my boy at Royal North Shore Public Hospital 3 years ago, I was very pleased with the care , support and professionalism of the staff I came across with. The problem is we are moving to Ropes Crossing( Near St Marys) in December, which means I will have to go to Blacktown Hospital for my next delivery. Can you please share with me your thoughts of the hospital specifically the Maternity unit and facilities, is it a lot worse compare to the RNSH? Thank You
