One of the things that has excited us the most about this pregnancy is being able to have a homebirth. After a lot of research, this was the option we were most comfortable with and have grown to look forward to more and more. The Rudd Government's continued refusal to recognise their new maternity 'reform' will remove Australian women's fundamental human right to choose where and how she gives birth. This isn't an issue about homebirth vs hospital birth. That is a decision that should be left to each individual to make, but it sickens me to think our government is doing that for us.
There is a National Day of Action this Thursday, 18th February.
