More expensive doesn’t necessarily mean the best.
There are plenty of examples and if I use my $5 block of Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate versus a box chocolate truffles for $25.99 I will probably cause offence.
Because I’m talking about having babies here. And what type of chocolate you prefer and what type of hospital you have your baby in are very different things.
(Still, I’ll take supermarket Cadbury Dairy Milk over imported chocolate truffles any day. Just saying.)
I’ve had three kids and three very different birth stories. All of them were brilliant because they resulted in a healthy, beautiful baby, but one of them was different to the others.
On our Hello Bump podcast we ask Public or Private hospital for you and your baby.
For my first two I went private and had an obstetrician.
He was the calmest, loveliest man, but as anyone who has had a baby will tell you his job was the delivery of a healthy baby and mother not the emotional care of a woman during pregnancy.
Added to this when it came to the pointy end of my pregnancy where I was in labour I only saw him at the very end – for the very stingy (I don’t want to scare the children) delivery part.
But I was very glad to see him and he did actually catch the baby – both times. He did his job well and two healthy baby girls were delivered. The first coming in at 4.4 kgs and the second smaller at 3.9kg. I was healthy too.
