About Us

My Midwives Brisbane is unique as one few private midwifery practices in Brisbane. The midwives now have access to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, Redcliffe Hospital and Caboolture Hospital. This step is very significant for women as it means you now can be admitted to hospital and still continue to receive care from a midwife that you have employed rather than someone allocated to provide your care. The model of care means that women can have birth care from their own midwife, have obstetricians and other medical staff available and can receive Medicare rebates for care. The midwives have direct access to the Birth Center at The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.
