Welcome to another article in our 'Useful Lists' series - this week on the discussion group we asked what you think are some of 'Brisbane's Best Public and Private Maternity Hospitals?'
We asked and you answered!
Our lists are continually updated and cover the best places for kids and parents across Brisbane, however we are aware that this list doesn't include all the great services on offer, but it's a great place to start! Remember to always do your own research and make sure the service meets your personal needs.

"Redlands hospital, I cant fault it al all. Both my babies born there and 2 very difficult births, the last only being 3 weeks ago where I very nearly died. Amazing midwives and great doctors!" - BMG Member
"Loved Redlands Hospital!" - BMG Member
"Great midwives for both of my babies births. Everyone understanding and helpful in the ward and really wonderful supportive midwives in birth suite!” - BMG Member
"I highly recommend Redland Bay Hospital. The nurses were so professional, helpful and kind. I had a 9-hour labour and was in so much pain. I couldn't even move for 9 hours yet they helped me through everything and looked after me even after my baby was born. I got through the labour and birth with absolutely no pain relief despite them asking a dozen times if I wanted any and didn't to have any stitches or tears either. They made checks on him in the same room and I got to hold him straight away. He never left my sight the entire time I was there and we got our own room with nurses checking us every 3 hours and got 3 meals a day plus morning and afternoon tea. Stayed for 3 days and if you're a first-time mum like I am then they will go above and beyond to look after you." - BMG Member
"I had the best birthing experience at the Wesley hospital! Defiantly should be on the list!" - BMG Member
"I was at the Wesley as well and my OB was Stephen Cook. My stay in the Wesley was great and the team there absolutely friendly, supportive and helpful! I would always go back to Dr Cook and the Wesley for any future bub!" - BMG Member

"I had my daughter at North West Private with OB Dr Nam Bajra. The hospital was fantastic as I was admitted for a week before bub was born. The staff there were great.
