In good health and been allocated to a low-risk model following your IMAP appointment at JHH
The program encourages you to ask your GP to send an early referral to the JHH for an IMAP appointment between 11-14 weeks, which will include 1st trimester screening and USS. You will see both a Midwife and Obstetrician at this appointment and you should clearly state you want HMGP as your model of care at this time. If you are accepted on to HMGP you will receive a phone call from a midwife between 14-16weeks, if you are on a waitlist or not appropriate for the model of care continue with planned antenatal care made at IMAP.

Independent Midwife Care
Sometimes women seek a very personalised, one to one, care for their pregnancy, birth and postpartum. We are very blessed to have a number of choices in the region.
This option has low government funding and you will need to pay out of pocket approximately $5000. Mind you, this is still a very affordable birth compared to many other births, even with private health cover taken into account!
Independent Midwives can support you at home, but also support women hospital birthing (they take on a non-medical role in any hospital spaces).
Respect and honour to the Awabakal and Worimi people as the original and wise custodians of this land. Honour to those who have birthed and breastfed their babies on this sacred land for more than 65,000 years.
