I wanted to let anyone interested in birthing at Mt Barker hospital (SA) know that they have just got the go ahead to offer a midwifery-led clinic.
What this means is you go to see a GP to confirm your pregnancy, then ring Mt Barker Maternity and request care by the midwife led clinic. Through your pregnancy you will be cared for by a small group of midwives (there are currently 5 wonderful midwives in this model) then see a GP/OB at 36 weeks. From then you remain under the care of the midwives who will be available for your birth and will look after you after the birth.
This is really exciting!!!
