Maternity Australia offers you a professionally supported option where you can work within a service offering holistic maternity care. All clinics are located within existing GP practices and each midwife has her own clinic/s where continuity of care is offered, and relationships can be built with women throughout the continuum of pregnancy right into the postnatal period.
You will be supported and mentored into the clinics by our leadership team and have direct phone/text contact for any tricky scenarios that may present during clinic hours. Access to referral services, pathology and imaging companies will be provided and support offered with hospital referrals.
Maternity Australia does not offer birthing services and is focused on providing continuity of care through the antenatal and postnatal period. To ensure that clinics are run on scheduled days by a known midwife with minimal disruption to services each midwife commits to her scheduled clinic date. Holiday and relief for sickness is managed within the team. Midwives wishing to remain available for hospital shifts to maintain birthing skill are encouraged to do so on non-clinic days.
