Save Private Midwifery

Private midwifery and homebirth is under threat in Australia. The Rudd Government's promise to improve maternity services in Australia began with the Maternity Services Review which showed so much promise - but has resulted in the erosion of woman's choices by excluding homebirth.

Homebirth Campaign

Private midwifery and homebirth is under threat in Australia. The Rudd Government's promise to improve maternity services in Australia began with the Maternity Services Review which showed so much promise - but has resulted in the erosion of woman's choices by excluding homebirth. A massive campaign has ensued. I recommend you start with the article "The Campaign So Far" - this summaries the events up-to-date. If you are interested in helping or knowing more, please email me and I can add you to the email list for campaign updates.
