Independent midwives are working privately, most often in pairs. Some midwives are Medicare eligible, which is something a midwife chooses to become and then has to meet certain criteria. At the moment Medicare midwives are trying to gain access rights to Nambour Hospital, so they can practice as midwives if you choose to birth there.

All doulas practise a little bit differently. Make sure you ask lots of questions and meet with a few different ones, before you make your decision. These Doulas are listed in no particular order and Birth Connection take no responsibility for how they practise.
