Candidate for the Federal Seat of Fairfax
Fairfax Labor candidate Debbie Blumel will meet with the Sunshine Coast Maternity Coalition at the Birthing and Babies (BaBs) Group to discuss the Maternity Coalition's submission on what women are advocating in relation to maternity services.
After a discussion about issues relating to birth in Australia (such as lack of continuity of care, Medicare funding for midwives, the enormous costs regarding rising caesarean rates and intervention), the women will share their individual stories and specific topics of concern.
The group includes pregnant women, mothers, midwives and other birth advocates to give a range of perspectives.
