Wonderful experience. A smaller, maternity and surgical hospital.
Had the same midwife for 4 of the nights I was there and she was wonderful.
Didn't have to pay for the tv and was supplied with heaps of nappies, wipes etc.
Own room, great meals and they held talks every day in a common room (attendance optional).
Visited every day by my obstetrician and anaethetist even visited the next day!
Would do exactly the same next time round.
Personally, I think regardless of whether the hospital is public or private, the midwives make a huge difference.
If they are great then you will be fine!
