mum2b22/1/06: Congratulations on your pregnancy!!!

To answer your question, I don't know if Casey has installed the TV's yet, but I know when I went for the tour, they were planning to do it over the next few months.  I went for the tour about 3 or 4 months ago.

I'd say they will definitely be installed by the time you are due.

Hope to see you around the boards.

no tv's yet, oh, I thought they would of had them in by now. I'm now overdue, my due date was the 28th Aug, so fingers crossed he or she decides all by his or her self to come into the world.

Being a low risk hospital they can let you go up to 2 weeks over, so it better be this week!! Yesterday the midwife said the bubs heartbeat was strong, in a good pos and I'm fine, so we shall see you next week. I'll see the Ob/Gyn then too.

Anne, I am really happy to hear that you are feeling better and that Casey staff were great.

To all due in the coming months, good luck and the care so far for me at Casey has been great. I'll let you know about the birth too.

Oh Loretta!  I do hope things get better for you soon!  It's hard when little ones are sick and especially being so tired.  Your new addition is due to arrive soon so try to look after yourself and we can organise something to meet you and your new bub!

To everyone else, I hope you are all well and that your pregnancies are going smoothly.

So glad i found this!! I am in Narre Warren Sth and my doc highly recommended Casey Hospital.  I am 7 weeks and think I would prefer to have a look around before deciding on where to go.
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what the procedure is, eg. when I should 'book in' and whether this is done over phone or if you go in, and do I have to make an appointment to do a tour?
I'm sorry if these questions have already been answered but I am so tired I can't remember any of what I read.  blush.gif

On Friday 2nd September at 7:40am - Jordan was born.
He was 5 days late, but when he did decide to come it was all over and done in less than 4 hours!
My experience at Casey with the birth and the following couple of days was great.
No TV's yet (we took in our own little TV), food was fine, the rooms are fabulous and the midwives were friendly and helpful and that continued with the home visits after too.
Happy to answer any questions or queries if people have them.
Better go I can hear a little man stirring from a sleep for a feed - eyes open, mouth open!!

Hello to all the Casey crew,

Sally that is fantastic news!  I was wondering how you were the other day. I am crying! Thank you for your report about how great the staff at Casey were.

Loretta, any news yet?

I have some good news...  our GP gave us the OK to TTC and we did!  I am due on May 25th 2006.  No doubt that I will be selecting Casey.

I have 2 OB's I am considering for share care.

Thanks, Anne

Thank you "Wiating for 4" for the the congratulations.  I told my MIL that I wanted a mundane pregnancy and she didn't quite get it.

Congratulations Loretta. Lucky you didnt' go the week before as it was quite busy when I was there, especially the day Jordan arrived (2nd Sept).

As I was in over the weekend, I didn't see any photographer and I'm not sure if there is one organised to come in, good question next time you have a check up.

It is so exciting hearing about all the pregnancies and babies being born.....keep up the chatter!

congrats to all the mums who have had their babies at casey hospital, i just had my booking in appointment there on saturday and was pleased with the hospital, although the midwife i was talking to was abit razzled by my 5 and 2 yr olds been there as well, lol. hopefully there will be tv's by the time i have our third child due in Janurary but i'm not too worried, i would like to sleep more i think while i can.  The midwife also said that when you have your baby in the birth suites and they don't need the room, you can stay in there for the duration of your stay, a nice idea i thought.

Hi LAdies, I had my booking appointment on Saturday and was very impressed with the midwife and the general atmosphere of Casey.  So new and clean - well compared to Dandy anything would look clean.

Just a question for you ladies who have already had bubbies at Casey - did you have the water jet/injections in the lower back for pain relief?  The midwife mentioned them to me and they sound like a great option.  Any information / experiences would be great!

hi, thanks for replying to my post Anne and Loretta, it took me awhile to read the thread but i got there, and i had forgotten that i had replyed a couple of times, not surprising these days really...lol

another question, with the tours that casey does, how involved are they, the midwife gave us a quick look around when i booked in, we saw the birth suite, nursery, bath and maternity ward room, is there anything worth going back for does anyone think...?

ok gtg chat to you all soon.

Hi Cheryl,

Glad you found us.

The midwife I spoke to last week said that if I wanted to be shown around during my first visit that would be fine.

Just thought I would drop a line as I haven't seen much action in the Casey thread for awhile.

How is everyone?

Is anyone out there booking in for May 2006?

Take care, Anne

Hi ladies,

I'm fairly new to this thread. just thought I'd mention i was at casey on the weekend for my checkup and i saw a sign saying that there will be no TV's at casey. Bummer

dragana - Sorry that I didn't reply to your post.  The page must have turned without me seeing it.  We are one month apart, I am due on the 24th May. It's great to touch base with someone in the area who is due around the same time as me.  I am a little nervous about being at home with a bub and not working.  I don't know that many people in Berwick and I tend to keep to myself a little.  In saying this, I am really looking forward to being a Mum and having the most important job of all.  Hopefully we can touch base every now and then.

clauds & Loretta - that's strange about the TV's.  TV's are so cheap now you would think they could afford them.  Do you get much time to watch TV anyway?  I mean you are only in their for 2 days and probably would have visitors.

I might take my laptop (if work lets me keep it - it just occured to me that they probably won't)!

OK, so I might take our little portable. H'ph.

Loretta - I can't believe Riley is 2 months already!

Take care, Anne

Clauds - when are you due?

#71 mum2b22/1/06

Posted 28 November 2005 - 12:50 PM

I have just finished ante-natal classes and the question about tv's in rooms was brought up in one of the classes. A midwife from the maternity ward said that they weren't going to be getting tv's in the rooms at all and that due to OH&S guidelines portable tv's were not allowed in the hospital. Thank goodness it's only a shorty stay!

Hi Anne,

I'm actually due the 8th of March. 14 weeks to go and counting...
My ribs are quite sore from all the kicking at the moment so march couldn't come any sooner original.gif

#73 Anne*

Posted 11 December 2005 - 08:05 PM

I hope I find a good book to read before I go into hospital.  And I hope DH remembers to tape my favourite tv shows.  Two days without a TV won't kill me.

Question - If I go into labour at night is that night counted as your first night in hospital?  Hope that makes sense!

Clauds - Wow on 14 weeks to go!  March is coming up so quickly.  I have a friend due the same time as you and she is going to Casey.  Good luck.

Hi all,

Just reading up on all the threads, i thought i would also join in.  Im due with my second bub on the 3rd of May, 2006.  I have been having my mid-wifery checks at Casey (have had 3 so far) and i have been very impressed.  Not only dont you have to pay, but you also get a high level of service as well as free ultrasounds as well (rather than having to pay $100+). I had number one at Dandenong and although i didnt have any concerns or problems while i was there, Casey is so new and almost looks like a private hosptial - not to mention much closer to home.  The TV bit doesnt concern me at all, i mean if all goes well, your only in there for 2 days and having a new born to pamper is much more fun! Is there anyone else due around the same time as me??  I am so scared of labour this time around.....!!!!
