Homebirth Rights: Rally - Parliament House Canberra - September 7

Homebirth Australia has announced that it plans to hold a MAJOR rally in Canberra (outside Parliament House) on Monday September 7 from 11.30am.

Justine Caines writes:
"There has been much discussion about the potential outlawing of homebirth and the continued lack of equity for women choosing homebirth.

"We need this to be BIG. When I met with the federal department of Health they commented on the huge number of submissions (900 of which over half came from homebirth consumers). Sadly I said if you outlaw homebirth I will lead 9000 angry women and babies to Canberra!

"The states close to Canberra will be called on to provide as many as possible to attend."

Details will soon be on the HBA website www.homebirthaustralia.org/
