Obviously not everyone uses an Obstertrician and our SMG Mums loved the caring Midwives at:

Ryde Hospital:
"Midwives were amazing! They took care of me from start to finish. We had an amazing natural birth. It was incredible." - SMG Member

St George Public:
"Midwives are epic!" - SMG Member

"I agree that the midwives at St George Public are fantastic, I had my first there, as a public patient, and my twins as a private patient, but they treated everyone the same and are so lovely." - SMG Member

Westmead Public:
"I didn't need an amazing doctor because I had an amazing midwife through the Westmead Midwifery Caseload Program!" - SMG Member

Royal North Shore Public:
"RNSW midwifery group practice. experience. ..and free" - SMG Member

North Shore have the best both midwives and delivery room doctors and nurses great...for emergency c section as well...They don't kick you out either till you're confident" - SMG Member

"I spent time with my first pregnancy at royal north shore after my waters broke at 22 weeks and the while I had the fight of my life to keep my baby well and healthy inside me it also felt like the midwives and nurses were fighting alongside me. Every day kept inside was a milestone celebrated. I sadly lost my battle and my little girl born too early at 23 weeks and once again the support shown helped get me through. Giving birth to a baby I knew wasn't going to survive was done so with the most beautiful team of doctors and nurses and I still cry thinking of how special they made that time for me and my partner. So my vote all the way is royal north shore." - SMG Member

Canterbury Hospital:
"Had my 3 kids there and have absolutely no complaints on their service. They were amazing throughout my pregnancies and deliveries... they made sure bub and mum were ok before discharge." - SMG Member

Hornsby Hospital:
"I am in love with my midwife care at Hornsby Hospital! They've been totally accommodating, and always go above and beyond. Such a win for a first time mum!" - SMG Member

"I gave birth at Hornsby Hospital and they were great. Their midwife service for 2 weeks post discharge is fabulous and extremely helpful. They encourage breastfeeding and the staff is very polite and helpful." - SMG Member

Hurstville Private Hospital:
"Hurstville Private Hospital is the best! There was one night where the midwife gave us a few hours to sleep on our own by takin her out coz we were so distressed over my baby cryin coz of colic." - SMG Member

"I had my two babies at The San in Wahroonga. Fantastic experience both times with my brilliant obstetrician and the wonderful team of midwives. The best service on offer was the free baby sitting, which allowed my husband and I to leave our babies (both times) with the midwives and go out on a dinner date one night. Such a great service to tske advantage of since dinner dates are far and few between once you're home with a baby." - SMG Member

"RPA was a great first experience for me. There are 2 choices which is the birth centre and labor ward. Birth centre is more of a relaxed birth for people wanting natural or water births as the baths there are very big and comfy. Labor ward more for high risk or those who opted for taking epidural the midwifes are great especially when you need that extra bit of encouragement."
