Certified Professional Midwives

Hello. As a mother of two children, who were delivered at home with a Certified Professional Midwife, I want to see full information for informed choice documents.

This includes the risks and benefits of home birth, AND of hospital births. I want the evidence to be based on research, not opinion.

As part of the complete decision making process, consumers should also see the risks associated with hospital births and caesarean deliveries in particular.

Thank you.
