    We live in the NE suburbs of Adelaide. Had our first child at the Women's and Children's and were very happy with their service and support.

    oh thanks heaps everyone!
    I can apparently have shared care between my doctors here in the hills as they are quite equipped and then the rest ill go to womens and childrens because my mum said they were really good with her when she had all us kids :)
    and my doctor is really good at advice and answering my silly questions haha so that helps.
    so happy i found this thread, its so cool to be able to speak to other people in adelaide! :happydance:

    I am going to be doing shared care with my GP at Wynn Vale and then having the baby at the Women's and Children's Hospital. I had my first baby there and they were fantastic couldn't have been any happier. Great hospital great service.:thumbup:

    Hi all

    I just moved to Adelaide from Melbourne a few months ago and I'm looking for an ob/gyn. We've been trying on and off for two years ](*,)and I want to get an ultrasound to make sure all the tubes are clear... I have a doctor but he doesn't really have a clue as to where to send me, or where I don't have to have private health to see an ob/gyn.... Can any of you ladies help? I live in the hills (around blackwood).

    Thanks!

    I went to Repromed when we had been trying for a year. They checked DH's sperm count n all that but didnt do any other checks due to getting pregnant.

    http://www.repromed.com.au/site/home.aspx

    Maybe give them a call to make an appointment to talk to someone. The specialise in IVF and Reproductive health unfortunately they are in Dulwich which is just outside the city but worth it

    Thanks JadeEmChar

    I actually followed up with my doc on Monday and he found me an OB/GYN at Adelaide Obstetrics (who funnily enough is one of the Docs that also work at Repromed). Have my first appointment next month. FX'd I don't need it!
