Not a lot of people know that independent midwives are an option for maternity care in Perth. If you’d like to know all of your care options you can see my blog on that here. If you want the continuity of care of an independent (also referred to as private) midwife, check the list below.
Reasons to hire an independent midwife?
– You want to develop a trusting relationship with your care provider and see the same person throughout your entire pregnancy journey.
– You want an expert in physiological birth.
The following independent midwives provide care for your labour and birth (as well as antenatal and postpartum). There are some other independent midwifery services in Perth that offer antenatal and postpartum care but NOT labour and birth so I haven’t included those here.
