The Adelaide Mums Group Useful Lists are a quick and easy point of information for all local mothers and those new to Adelaide. They have been compiled by Adelaide Mums Group members who have provided feedback, hints, local knowledge and important information on places and services for kids and parents across Adelaide.
The first of our 'Useful Lists' is Adelaide's Best Public and Private Maternity Hospitals, Birth Centres and Midwife Services.
Flinders Medical Centre Location: Flinders Drive, Bedford Pk, Adelaide
Contact: Phone 08 8204 5511
Here's what Adelaide mums had to say:
"I had my first 6 months ago through the Flinders Public. I found the care of the midwives before, during and after to be absolutely fantastic. I felt extremely supported throughout my whole pregnancy and birth. I ended up having to have an emergency c-section and the doctors and midwives again were great. They kept me informed and kept me calm during the surgery. I could not recommend the Flinders Public highly enough."
"Yep I second Flinders Public! It was my midwife's first day back on the labour ward after 5 years and you couldn't even tell, she was amazing, the nurses that looked after me and the nurses in NICU were amazing! Couldn't fault them :)."
"I couldn't fault my experience when delivering my baby girl 3 months ago at Flinders through the Southern Midwifery Group! The midwives were just incredible & so helpful throughout my pregnancy & for many weeks after!"
"Had my 2 children at Flinders Medical Centre and never had a problem with them."
"Flinders were amazing in the before and after care but refused me my uninterrupted first hour, as it was an Emergency C they had no reasoning other than policy, an old one that needs to change."

"Both kids were born at North Eastern Private Hospital. Absolutely the best ever and food was yummo. North Eastern Private 100% absolutely the best. I had both kids there and if there is a third I will be going there again."

"Women's and Children's Public were absolutely amazing for me. All the midwives and doctors were wonderful."
"I was part of midwifery group led practice through Women's and Children's Hospital. The care was fantastic, only saw a doctor for baby's check up before we discharged home."
"Loved MGP at WCH! Amazing continuity of care! Became so close with my midwife! Would now consider her my friend!!"
"Me too! Absolutely loved it. Had a natural, intervention free birth and became really close to my midwife. Great experience all round."
"I went to the Ashford Private Hospital for both my girls, and am there again currently with this pregnancy. I've absolutely loved it! My sister in laws have been to Lyell McEwin and Gawler and loved both as well. I think a lot of it does come to personal experience, though."
