midwives will visit you at home, and as long as you can feed and change diapers you will be fine!

I have found all the information in this thread really useful as I need to decide within a week if we go public or private. I was wondering if anyone would know if it is possible to go through RNSH public as a private patient? And if so what the difference of this would be to going just public.
I miscarried twice last year and did not find the care at RNSH very good, but I am hoping this was just because it happened both times on a Saturday and is not medically urgent in the big scheme of a hospital. However if something goes wrong I want to be where all the best equipment is close by.
Thanks in advance for any information.

Think you'll need to call and ask. But I can't see why not! My friends have birth public (elsewhere), but stayed in a private room, I think you use public service, but only private for room.
I found NSP good, obviously midwives are short staffed, but so is everywhere, but overall, they looked after me most of the time, but if you have a problem you gotta say it. Or they assume you're fine. Just really crucial you say what you need/want to know.

I had such terrible experiences at RNS public that I told DH if I had to go in hospital again for birth I'd want to go private.
Been thinking about this a lot as I'm worried Im pregnant again and due to a third degree tear I would have to have a Caesarean section.
Preferable for us is Ryde midwifery group practice.
