Homebirth Access Sydney along with Homebirth Australia are commencing a new project to create a national register of homebirth services. This register will include private midwifery services and hospital run homebirth programs across Australia.
Our aim is to have a searchable and free resource online to help women find homebirth services in their area. We also hope to be able to identify areas where there are no homebirth services available to meet the needs of the women who live there. This information can then be used to help with lobbying for more access to homebirth care in underserved areas.
We have taken on a student intern, Hannah Lyons-Uhl from Macquarie University, to help us with this work. She will be distributing information about the project across our social media platforms. However, if you would like more information, or to speak to someone about the project, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
