My dh just got a job offer as an engineer in Australia and while we are really excited I want to look into it a little. They would want him in Sydney for 6 months, and then we would move to either Perth, Brisbane, or Melbourne. We don't have any kids, but we are trying to get pregnant. What is the health care like? Would we be able to use it if we aren't permanent residents? I would like to have a homebirth with a midwife, how hard is it to have that there? Does it depend on the city I live in? What are differences between the 3 cities I mentioned? What is the housing market/renting like? Where would you live, given the choice? Anything else I need to think about/know?
