Hi everyone, so i am due in August and i have been booked in to the Ipswich hospital. Sadly i would rather drive 30+ minutes to go to either the mater, pa or the QE2. I was born in Brisbane and would like my son to be as well. And i have heard bad stories of Ipswich Hospital and have experienced them myself in different areas whilst having to go there.

If i was to go directly to another hospital and say that was the closest one according to where i was at the time, will they turn me away? I've heard that they wont, but i would like to here if anyone else has had to do this before and how their experience went.

Thank you ladies.
