I have a couple of horror stories about people that have had a baby in private hospitals so I was quite happy to go public!! But each to their own!!

Midwives were lovely, very supportive and helpful. Private rooms each time and with DD I even got a huge room with a queen size bed (so DH could stay with us for a couple of nights) and a little bath so we could bath DD in our room.
Only paid our $500 excess. Will go back if we decide on another bub.

I had my son at Royal North Shore Hospital (Public) in Sydney and found it to be fanastic & I would do it all over again with my 2nd one.
The only thing I hated with the public system is seeing different midwifes instead of having your own personal doctor.
