Pregnancy, Birth and Early Parenting is such an important time in life. This is the time a women becomes a mother and a baby is welcomed to the world.
It is also the time, that when a women is cared for with respect, it can have a lasting effect on her, her baby, her family and the community.
Maternity Choices Australia (formerly Maternity Coalition) was formed by committed and passionate individuals who believed that the services being offered, were not providing the care that women wanted or needed.
We aim to see all women, no matter their circumstances have access to a number of maternity care choices that are based on respectful, women-centred care and are modelled and delivering care that is formed on best evidence.
