The proposal of the Maternity Services Review released in February will effectively outlaw home birth with an independant midwife as of July 2010. If a midwife were to attend a home birth after this time she would face serious ramifications including imprisonment.
The review also failed to address affordable home birth options which is what over half the submissions were advocating for.
This website has been created to support the organisations, midwives, mothers and their families who are each working to keep midwives in private practice and advocating for affordable home birth options.
