We are pregnant through IVF for the first time at 44 years of age. Very happy.  I am now looking for a good obstetrician who can deliver at RHW Randwick who is not tooo expensive. We have private health care.
Would love to hear your experiences. Really hard to decide. I called a couple but as we are due in December they are away or work alternate weeks and can not guarantee delivery, eg. Dr Hawke.
Thanks in advance,
kind regards,

Not my DIG, but I did have a December baby. I decided to go with a practice with a group of OBs, who I had the chance to meet throughout my pregnancy. That way, I was comfortable with each of them if my preferred OB wasn't able to make it. As it was, she was on call the night I had my DS, but I would have been happy with any of the other doctors.

In the end, even if your OB isn't away and is on call when you are ready to give birth, there's still no guarantee they'll make it! And, of course, there's no guarantee you won't go early, either.

Do IVF Australia have a list of Ob's they can give you?

My Ob is fantastic however she is at St George Private so not much help to you...
