I am brand new at this site. My name is Alina, im 26 and live in Perth Western Australia.
I joined this website to let you know about the struggle us homebirthers are facing in Australia.
As of July 2010, having a homebirth with an Independant midwife will be illegal. If caught, the midwife and birthing mother can face fines of $30,000 and up to 5 years jail
here is a song on youtube a lady has created regarding this, i can't add a link but you can search - Song to Nicola Roxon.
Nicola Roxon is Australia's Minister for Health and is leading this to get this legislation aproved in parliment
Please support us in our fight to save homebirth in Australia, and let everyone and anyone you know about us.
