Continuity Midwife Program

Continuity Midwife Program (CMP) is available for low and high risk pregnancies.

This service is to provide women with access to a known midwife during their pregnancy, birth and after baby care. CMP is run by a small team of highly experienced midwives and offers women the benefit of receiving a large proportion of their pregnancy care. The CMP midwives aim to be present for your labour and birth, and will provide postnatal care at home. If you are wishing to join CMP please phone (03) 5564 4154 when you are 12 weeks pregnant to enquire about being part of the program. CMP has limited numbers and it is assessed based on the woman’s needs. Self-referral is required for this service.
