Save Private Midwifery and homebirth choices

19,936 Signatures Goal: 50,000

To the Honourable President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled: The petition of the undersigned shows that with planned national registration of all health professionals to take effect on July 1st 2010 midwives in private practice will be unable to seek registration on the basis of their inability to obtain professional indemnity insurance. We ask that the senate bring this issue to the parliament's attention and make a speedy redress to assist midwives in private practice to obtain professional indemnity insurance. We also ask that midwives in private practice enjoy the same funding mechanisms as procedural general practitioners and specialist obstetricians under the medicare benefits schedule.
