Thank you to those who flew in from around Australia with children and banners! ACM has no right to be trying to deny women access to midwives and while they’ve already made their decision, here’s hoping some of them have misgivings since those affected by their new regulations think they stink.
A beautiful blog entry from Lisa Barrett with a 35-36 week gestation babe being born beautifully into crystal clear water at home.
ACM’s new policy documents try to force births like this woman’s birth into hospital. Why?
If you are unhappy with the latest homebirth position statement and midwives guidelines from the Australian College of Midwives that will restrict the majority of women’s access to midwife attended homebirth, please attend a protest rally at the ACM conference on 19th October at Australian Technology Park Sydney. Meet at 12pm at Marian Street Park Redfern then walk to the conference centre for a 12.30pm rally!
