It’s time for maternity services in Australia to change.

The only way we can do this is for people to speak up.  
There are TWO ways you can get involved to help break the silence about what is really happening in our maternity systems and increase the number of midwifery care models for women around Australia.

1. Lobby Politicians
2. Share Your Story

to change.

1. Send an Email to Key Decision Makers in Australia

We've written an email via the Do Gooder platform. All you need to do is:

  1. Fill in your details.
  2. Add your own experience of birth with/without known midwife at the 3rd paragraph (optional). 
  3. Click 'Send my email'.

Your email will then be sent straight to the key decision makers in government to lobby for change in our maternity system.

2. Share your birth story

Birth Time and Western Sydney University have collaborated in a Nation wide survey (available in multiple languages).

Have you had a baby in the last 5 years in Australia? 

If so, you are invited to participate in this research project that seeks to understand the positive and negative birthing experiences women are having in Australia.

The findings will provide vital insight into the factors contributing to positive and negative birthing experiences, and help to inform policy change in Australia. 

After the survey, you also have the opportunity to tell your story by making an audio or video recording using the Voqual app.
