I have had many problems with the public hospital in my area

I have had many problems with the public hospital in my area, my sister had a still born baby which has since proved to be the hospitals fault and there arent any other hospitals in the area that have maternity services. I would like to be considered high risk, as I feel I will be proply looked after this way. How can i make sure I am assesed as High risk?

Answer: Hi, You may want to talk to an independent midwife in your area. Midwives can provide one on one care to you and your family and you tend to have a far better experience and more satisfactory birth. Look at www.australiansocietyofindependentmidwives.com Best wishes, Alex
