Save Birth Choices Bulletin
Posted by Anna Russell
Last week the Greens were successful in referring the Medicare related legislation to the Senate to review. This means there is a senate inquiry looking at the offending amendments that require midwives to work collaboratively with Doctors. This is good news.
The challenge is that the submissions to the inquiry are due by 11 December (Friday week). To make the most of this inquiry, we need as many people as are able to write a short submission to the inquiry to show that these amendments are not acceptable.
Below are links to relevant information:
Maternity Coalitions brief on what has happened, what to write and the process to follow
Maternity Coalitions brief on what collaborative arrangements will mean for families and midwives
Please spend the 5-10 minutes to send off a submission. Every submission counts at this point.
Thank you in advance,
Save Birth Choices
