Please copy & paste the following message everywhere you can! We have the blessings of Homebirth Australia & Maternity Coalition to run The Sister of the Mother of all Rallies here in Adelaide. Other states are extremely welcome & encouraged to take all of this information & run local rallies too.
From July next year, homebirth with a registered independent midwife will be illegal, unless people like us make it known we believe in a woman's right to autonomy over her reproductive health. People like us need to make it clear to the federal government that women should have the right to choose where and with whom they give birth. People like us need to ask the government to think seriously about making the registration of health practitioners dependant on being able to secure insurance.
On Monday 7 September The Mother of All Rallies will be held at Parliament House Canberra, at 11:30am. The rally is going to be huge! But what can we do from Adelaide?
Join us on the steps of Parliament House at 11am for The Sister of The Mother Of All Rallies. Let's get as many people out as possible, not just those who have and/or plan to homebirth, but also those who care about the right to choose. Let's make it clear the people of Adelaide care about this.
The rally is for the partners and children of the women who have gone to Canberra, so they can show their solidarity and have their whole family counted. It's for all birthing women who want to stand up and say they want choice available for their antenatal, labour, birth and postnatal care. It's for all citizens who believe in the right of the individual to take responsibility for their own health and well-being.
