Access to the Midwife Group Practice for women of Maryborough

This petition had 968 supporters

Currently the women of Maryborough do not have access to the Midwife Group Practice model of care. As a community we desperately want to have access to this. 

Reasearch shows that the outcomes for women who have continuous, midwife led care are much better than those who don't. This includes lower rates of interventions, less use of drugs, lower instances of tearing and less emergency Caesarians. 

The fact that the women of Maryborough are not able to birth in their local hospital is bad enough, but then to add that we can't access the MGP because of our location adds extra sting to the situation. 

We want to have better birthing experiences and having a Midwife Group Practice that is able to service our area is a good start. 

Not only will women, babies and families benift, but the entire community will.
