We are so lucky! Government funded Homebirth is an option in the Hunter AND we have private midwives too. Read more at this page.

When women feel relaxed and comfortable, their bodies can open more smoothly and more effectively and for many women this can be in their own home.

Sadly, the local government funded homebirth program doesn't always accept all women, or meet the specific emotional needs, or geographical needs of all women - at least not fully and completely. Hence for a wide variety of reasons, a family may be seeking to hire a private midwife to birth at home (support a hospital journey too).

For those seeking a private midwife to hire, we are lucky and the region has quite a few private midwives available (though they can book up fast).

Your local homebirth choices are:

  1. Government funded homebirth through the hospital program at Belmont Midwifery Group Practice

  2. Hiring an independent Private Midwife. The current, local private midwives are shown below, call or text me (Natalie) on 0406 934 645 to chat further about how one goes about choosing and hiring a private midwife and I can help pass their info to you.

Below I have listed a quick glance at our local Private Midwives:

(if you are a private midwife servicing the area, please message me and I will add you at this page to assist women to have full choice and autonomy. Being listed here this is a free service for the informational benefit of all local pregnant women).
