The majority of homebirths in South Australia are attended by an Independent (self employed / private practice) Midwife. These midwives are registered and fully qualified to provide total one-on-one care during pregnancy, birth and throughout the post-natal period.
Your independent midwife will encourage you to make your own informed choices as to the care that you and your baby receive during pregnancy, birth and the post-partum period. She will then entirely support the choices you have made, whatever they may be. There are no pre-conceived eligibility criteria and you can choose the midwife who most suits the needs of you and your family.
