Which system did you go through with your pregnancy? Base or Private?

I am 33 weeks pregnant at the moment and going through the base hospital everyone there seems really nice and polite, but the midwife thinks my baby might be breech still and doesnt seem 100% positive I just want to know what is going on and she doesnt seem to really know.

Just wondering how was your experience if you went through the base?

Hi! I went through the base with my son and overall they were really good, I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes @ 28 weeks and they were really good with helping me with diet etc. They induced me 3 days early and were pretty good, the only downside was they didn't let my husband stay with me (it was just that particular midwife, she was a deadseat biatch!) So I spent 7 of the 10 hours of labour in a room by myself, until I'd convinced them I was actually in labour (apparently I coped really well with the pain so they didn't think I was in labour, no fault of theirs I guess) and called hubby in straight away. The middy that delivered my son stayed 2-3 hours after her shift ended to deliver him and stayed to make sure we were both ok. So overall I think they were really good and I'll be happy to go through the base again for my next bub!
