Depends on the state, a couple of them have introduced a few options but in Qld no not publically. You can hire one of the few and far between very brave (bureaucracy & litigiousness that makes them have to be brave) independant midwives but that means paying around $4,000 for the privilidge - clearly not an option for me!
It's very obstetrician focused here, I went through a big appeals process of foot stamping and letter writing to get let into the birth centre so at least I'm there rather than under obs supervision (because I'm too fat & therefore risky for the birth centre officially lol) but even so I'm still not allowed in the birth pool for my riskiness - which needless to say cheeses me right off :twitch: Bah, I am just trying to ignore the whole "have to actually give birth" bit :roll:

Thanks :mrgreen: I definitely tossed up coming back to give birth but hubs has to be here for the business so would mean being on my own there, and he's due only 4 days before the kids start back at school so it was all a bit messy. And *ahem* if he just happened to quietly slip on out all by himself far too quickly to be able to get to hospital then well, what can you do... 8-[ :smt044

Sarah!!!! Congratulations! That is lovely news!! I hope all goes well over these last few weeks and that the birth goes well. My sister gave birth in a birthing centre on the Gold Coast and had a lovely experience so hopefully you will too.
