Maternity Services Review in today's papers

Janie Nottingham, Victorian President of Maternity Coalition, Australia's leading consumer and midwife advocacy organisation, writes:

The release of the report is due today, I have scoured the Internet for some articles and have come up with the following.

The Age

The Australian

Sydney Morning Herald

The long & short of what I can determine from the press is that there is no public funding of homebirth going to be considered in the near future, medicare and pharmceutical prescribing rights are discussed but the details are sketchy. Welcome any discussion and opinions.
