Homebirth Rally - Canberra

Well I'm back from the homebirth rally and very glad I went. it was great to show some solidarity around this event. Nicola Roxon declined to talk to us but many others did. The rain was persistent which was a shame and we did get very wet.
There has been a stay of execution for two years. There is still no indemnity insurance for midwives however. So the fight must go on. I urge all Australians who care about democratic rights of choice to write to all tiers of government about this issue.
You can see my sign in this video but it is sideways so you can't read it. It said
HOMEBIRTH
MY VOICE
IS
PRO CHOICE
Kinda catchy I thought!

My birthing days are over T but I would hate that my children could not have the same experience we had.

Hey Pam. Me too. I was a home birther. It all went very well. Almost 24 years ago. I love driving by that little worker's cottage in Toowong, Brisbane and saying "that's when Ben was born".

Great to see that incredible response from the Netherlands girls. And good on you for waving the flag.
