RALLY - outside the offices of Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard
Homebirth: My Birth, My Choice
Monday 9th November 2009 10:30am

As a result of the mess that maternity reform has become and the unclear but seemingly very poor options for homebirthing women, Homebirth Australia and Home Midwifery Association are hosting a rally outside Kevin Rudd's electorate office in BRISBANE, and outside Julia Gillard's office in WERRIBEE.

Other groups are invited to join the rally to make this the beginning of a very clear election campaign.

Homebirth: My Birth, My Choice

Kevin Rudd and the Labor Party is no friend of homebirth, not even midwifery it seems.

Kevin Rudd's electoral office
630 Wynumm Road

Julia Gillard's Werribee Office:
Shop 2, 36 Synnot Street
Werribee Vic 3030
Email: Julia.Gillard.MP@aph.gov.au

Women, children, men, families, friends who support choice in birth, including homebirth with a private midwife.

Bring a 'calling card' to drop off, letting our Prime Minister and his deputy know that women want choice in childbirth and this includes the choice to hire a private midwife to birth at home - insured and funded. The calling card should be an A4 piece of paper (can be larger or smaller) with your name and address, concerns, experience, suggestions and a request for a response from Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard about this important issue.

The rally and is supported by Homebirth Australia, the Home Midwifery Association (Qld) and Maternity Coalition.
