Hi ladies. I've recently arrived in Melbourne with my husband and 3 year old daughter and am also 21 weeks pregnant. We are based in Altona.

I am exploring options for labour in Western melbourne and would like to find a holistic/natural birth supportive GP to help me figure out my best choices.

Preferably a woman but not required.

I am looking into home birth possibly through sunshine but I don't know much about it at present and am hoping to get a referral in soon to see if they'll accept me. I would love to do a private home birth with a private midwife but the cost is an aversive for me as I would generally use the public system.

Any advice for a Melbourne newbie natural mama also very appreciated!
