Hi, I can't help specificaly, I'm Edinburgh based. But what is it about the 2 hosps that you like or dislike. What is most important to you ? I was at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and it was good, not like a lot of horror stories I had heard at all.
Good luck with the baby, always nice to have another Scottish mum, there are only a few of us. S x

i have only got personal experience of Paisley RAH , had to go ther as i was induced at 11 days late, lovely unit, modern clean, good food!!! some staff great others not so, definately rate the scbu nurses, they were lovely and very reasuring.
I had wanted to go to Vale of Leven Midwife led unit but couldn't because of induction BBooo!!
Regards to Queen mums have heard very mixed opinions, some good some realy not good. I personaly don't like the building, very old ( i was born there nearly 29 years ago and my mum says it hasn't changed much and i know it has nothing to do with the care you get but how you feel in your environment is quite important when doing something like giving birth.
A couple of girls from my aqua natal class had their lo in Queen Margartes and said it was lovely, would go back for next baby.
Don't know about royal infirmary but all i can suggest is go along for a tour and see what feeling s you get for them. Hoe what ever dcision you make is the right one for you and you have a good birth experience, take care love fiona and Hayden 21 weks

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
