I got my DH to stay the night with me, after the birth of each of my 3 children.

Its great if you can arrange it and have family or other support to look after the other kids.

Unfortunately many don't have that. For example my DH stayed for first bub only. With 2 & 3 he had to stay at home with our other children. I'm sure there are many families in this position.  

What would you have done had your DH not been able to stay after your C/S and no other family could stay either?

I think your source is telling a porky pie. No way would an entire hospital full of post natal maternity patients be C/S!


Given that some private hospitals have c/s rates above 50%, I can well believe that at times 100% of the maternity patients would have had caesars, especially in a private hospital with low number of maternity beds.

Despite. I was referred to a specific OB by my GP and my Fertility Specialist and he only delivers at one hospital. Having said that, the two private hospitals I live closest to have remarkably similar CS rates - withing 0.2%.

It's not my intention to have a CS if I can avoid it. My mother had three because she had a genetic condition which meant she didn't have an option. I won't know until I get close to delivery if I'll be in the same situation. But my aim, and my OB's aim, is for a natural birth - thanks for asking.


Lots of good luck to you. I hope you get the delivery you want :-)

The numbers of patients in a hospital should not impact the C/S rate as a whole.
Are you talking about this hospitals average or C/S rate on one particular day?
I do not believe any private hospitals 'usual' C/S rate is 100%. It would be a recipe for disaster for the hospital.
Can I ask for some names of these hospitals that have C/S rates of over 50%?

I mean that it is possible that all postnatal women in a hospital on one particular day have had c/s - not that any hospital would have a 100% c/s rate!  If the average is say 50%, at times the proportion of c/s patients will be higher and lower than this.

Here is an article on c/s rates in private hospitals in Queensland;
http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/sunday-...f-1226073562079
In Victoria private hospitals are not required to make their statistics public, so we have no way of knowing what their c/s rates are.  However I don't doubt that in many cases their c/s rates are similar to private hospitals in Queensland.

I think we are all aware that there are some hospitals with an excessively high C/S rate and of course for  some women it will be the deciding factor that sees them book to be a patient there.
For some women it is not a negative feature.

Of course.  Hopefully the hospitals with >50% C/S rates have taken this into account when staffing their postnatal wards.

I don't know of any in NSW, soontobegran. Most of the Private hospitals sit around the 42-47% mark, except for The SAN which is a lot lower (36%).

I was not welcomed to the ward and had the buzzer explained to me - i wish I was.

Instead I was dumped into a bed at shift change and told the buzzer was for emergencies.

I was next seen 6 hours later when the midwife said 'oh =- i didn't know you were here, I'm going now.'

I had a sh*te experience and have not been back to that dud hospital.

I had no idea how to breast feed, or what baby should be doing, and got no help whatsoever for 24 hours, at which point sh was rushed to special car, and I was left alone.
