There are many options for care at a My Midwives branch. Each branch operates independently and has its own fee structure. When you make contact with a clinic you will be offered an Initial Antenatal and information visit. At this visit, not only will you be offered an antenatal check, you will also have the opportunity to discuss your options for models of care, care givers for pregnancy and birth and how much the care will cost you. There are options for those with Private Health cover and those who have Health Care Cards. Please contact My Midwives in your area to make an initial appointment.
In each branch our Medicare eligible midwives are able to provide a Medicare rebate for the care you receive. The amount of this rebate will depend on whether or not you or your family have reached the Medicare Safety Net and/or Extended Medicare Safety Net. Please visit Medicare for more information about the Safety Nets.
At My Midwives branches there is now a simple solution which allows you to obtain private midwifery care whilst balancing your expenses. My Midwives has formed a relationship with MediCredit which will fund all midwifery services and associated costs including your hospital fees. Payment Plan options are available from $25 per week and applications will generally be conditionally approved within 24-48 hrs.
