Why Australia NEEDS a maternity care revolution
Experience More - Subscribe to Our Weekly Events Newsletter
Maternity care in Australia is at a crisis. Women are lacking choice and autonomy. I recently wrote an article about choosing your care provider
. Which led to an article about the illusion of choice in maternity care in Australia
. Which led to an article about ways to manage birthing with an unsupportive care provider
. Which, along with a few other recent conversations and events, led to this. It’s becoming increasing difficult to maintain hope of a brighter future for our daughters. What we need now is a revolution.
Thank you so much to the women who inspired this article and are fighting for the cause in a million different ways. Helping to improve maternity care in Australia– one woman, one baby and one birth at a time.

The biggest reason we need a revolution is because improving the pregnancy and birthing journey and outcomes for women is even considered revolutionary! Pregnant women are human beings – this should not be a revolutionary concept!
We need a revolution in maternity care in Australia because WOMEN AND BABIES DESERVE BETTER
Why do you believe we need a revolution? And how are you contributing to the cause?
