I am just hoping to grab some feedback on personal experiences for people in both public and private hospitals for delivery. I know everyone's experiences are different but just trying to get an idea of what I might be in for. I am wanting to go as far as I can, if not the whole way through my labour with minimal or no intervention. I've been reading around and hearing stories from other people that apparently private hospitals have a higher rate of intervention. Up until now I have been looking at going private as we have cover and the idea of having my own privacy once bubs is here is really quite appealing . After the birth of my first I have reflected a lot and felt there was a lot of intervention (both in part from myself and not knowing/ asking enough questions and not feeling confident enough in myself to go without it and the hospital staff intervening which I'm not sure was 100% necessary) I would love to hear general feedback and if it really depends on who you get and how I go into it expressing what I want or if the public vs private will really make a difference.
