Homebirth Australia supports the right of private midwives to practice with or without Medicare eligibility. With the current lack of insurance options many women face the loss of private midwifery care.
As midwives legally require insurance in order
to practice we want to ensure that ALL midwives have access to it regardless of Medicare eligibility, years of practice and also current restrictions.

Please know HBA are working closely with a number of committees to make our voice and yours heard.
