Why choose Private Obstetric Care?
Private obstetric care is individualised care and brings with it the security of knowing that the decision making in your pregnancy and during the birth will be under the guidance and supervision of a specialist at all times. It allows you the time to develop a relationship and rapport with your personal obstetrician over a period of many months, with continuity of care as a given. You therefore have the opportunity to address your concerns with your carer in an unhurried manner during your pregnancy and to make decisions in a timely fashion, under consistent guidance.
In contrast, as a patient in a public hospital, it is usually not possible to know who will be present at the birth of your baby and whether your care will be led by midwives, junior doctors, senior doctors or a combination. The decision making process therefore may follow a different trajectory. While comprehensive medical care of a very high standard is available through the public hospital system in Australia, the system is reliant on trainee doctors (interns, residents and registrars) under the direct or telephone supervision of senior doctors.
