I had both DDs in public but different hospitals. DD#1s hospital was fantastic.... i even had my own room, they helped with feeding, checked on me all the time, supplied nappies etc, even some clothes lol.
DD#2s hospital was also fantastic, not at all what you would think of Frankston hospital, for those who know what im talking about. I didnt have my own room, but the lady i shared with was great! and the hospital staff were great too, especially when they found her jaundice levels WAY high and had to go into the ICN for a week.
I would definitly go back to the one where DD#1 was born, as franston is now joint with rosebud and is too busy now, if there is no complications they can send you home with bubs the same day.
would also so like to add that at DD#1s hospital my partner was allowed to stay and they even catered for him aswell!!
