"Royal North Shore Hospital group practice midwives is wonderful and the clinic there that looks after women who have difficult pregnancies. Amazing!" - SMG member
"I had an incredible experience through the whole pregnancy and delivery of my son at Royal North Shore Public. My baby had jaundice and I stayed with my husband for 10 days unexpectedly. They took care of us, checked on us every 2 hours and not just medically, they also ensured my mental health was going well, as after 10 days in the hospital not going outside can be overwhelming for a new mum and also for my husband. They sent different professional help while we stayed, physiotherapist for my after delivery recovery, nurses often, midwives and finally the pediatrician to ensure we could leave the hospital just when my son was with low levels of bilirubin. The care and love they put in every detail made our experience great!" - SMG member
"Loved the modern atmosphere of Norwest and the staff in the Special Care Nursery were brilliant when our premmie baby had to stay there for 6 weeks. Did have a negative experience with a nurse who was "amazed" that I couldn't push out my little baby who was breech although." - SMG member
"Norwest Private Hopsital was excellent - I had both my daughters there and I could not fault it. Facilities are great and the rooms look similar to a hotel than a hospital. Staff were all great too. They promoted breastfeeding and assisted with this, but also helped the mums (from what I observed) that were struggling to breastfeed and needed/chose formula. I had straight forward births with no problems, but would recommend from my experience." - SMG member
"I loved how supportive the team of midwives were here. They allowed me freedom to choose how my little one came into the world (which ended up being a water birth) and provided fantastic support to my nervous husband as well." - SMG member
"I chose this hospital as I had complications with birth previously, resulting with my baby needing the facilites of the NICU which are top notch here." - SMG member
"I wanted to be close to Westmead Public in case my little one had any issues when born, but I still wanted a private hospital experience. The staff were great as were the facilities - would definitely recommend." - SMG member
I have to second Blacktown Hospital. I also was a bit nervous, but had the best experience (first birth - natural vagina birth, no pain medication). The whole experience was great, right from the prenatal classes, to the birth and the after birth experience. Great midwives and great facilities.
My high risk pregnancy and delivery was very well managed there and them my premmie got the best treatment there during his 2 months stay. My family is indebted to the hospital n its awsum staff!
