More planning and pondering...

Good morning all!

My vitex & aust bush flower essence arrived in the mail on Wednesday. Unfortunately my shatavari was not included in the parcel however I have phoned the supplier and it is on it's way. I went through VitaminMe online, the service was excellent and the prices were good too.

I visited the osteopath yesterday about my poor misaligned body. The Osteo (Stewart) feels I have sprained a tiny ligament in my pelvis which has thrown everything out. He isolated the pain that I thought was in my coccyx and we discovered that it is actually just to the left of my sacrum. I'm pleased about this as I feel it will be easier to rehabilitate. Stewart would like me to have a rest from running and focus on strengthening my glutes to support my pelvis. Walking is fine but no lunges or big stairs etc- basically anything that pulls on that tiny ligament needs to be avoided for three weeks or so until it heals. Stewart is going to look at my shoulders next week as I have shocking winged scapular and very poor shoulder stability.

I am very excited to get my body working properly.

Planning to start ttc next month. Am pondering things around home birth and the law- a question for those who know more than me- Would it be wise to have private health cover in case of having to transfer to hospital?? I find it hard to think about the possability of having to be in a horrible environment like that however this is something that is playing on my mind as I have heard that homebirth transfers are considered "private" patients and will be charged private prices.

I work in at a public hospital and here, every patient has the choice to choose whether they want to be a private patient or public patient. I cant see how you could be charged as a private patient, unless you elect to go private and dont have any insurance?

Also, dont forget if you are getting private health insurance, there's a 12 month waiting period for pregnancy benefits.

I recently discovered that in Victoria, you can be treated as a private patient in a public hospital, and not have to pay any out of pocket expenses. I would double check this though.
