I am having to consider a private midwife in order to get continuity of care with my 3rd pregnancy, because my local birth centre won't accept me as a second time VBAC (first baby was c-section, second baby was VBAC in another birth centre).
I heard that I can access a private midwives and get medicare rebates for this. I would love to do this if I can afford it.
Does anyone know how much this would cost? I don't have a health care card and haven't reached the medicare safety net. So just normal rebates.
My other options are hiring a doula (again, dont know how expensive this is), or having a student midwife follow me.
