Sunshine Coast Private Midwife Provides Maternity Care Options for New Mums


QUEENSLAND, Australia August, 2013 – From the moment a mum-to-be knows that she is pregnant right up until the day she gives birth to the new bundle of joy—she (expectant parents) will share many miraculous and magical moments. Sometimes however, the stress and decisions that many parents, especially first timers face, eclipses the beauty of pregnancy. From conception to childbirth there are many decisions new parents tackle along the way, each choice having the potential to leave a lasting impression on a newly developing family. Knowing that there are different maternity care options available and knowing how to get the best possible care are essential factors towards a healthy, satisfying pregnancy. Familiarising themselves with the pros and cons of each option certainly helps new parents enjoy the miraculous moments of pregnancy right up to that very special day when their new bundle of joy is born.

Sunshine Coast private midwife Mary Young, who is also the director of Know your Midwife, provides parents-to-be with the ‘Circle of Care Program’ – a special programme that gives parents the options and the knowledge to make the right maternity care decisions for them. This programme involves education, support, meditation, breathing techniques, and visualisation on a daily basis in preparation for the best birthing experience possible. By the end of the program, parents will have prepared physically, emotionally and mentally for their birth, having ultimate confidence in the birthing process so they can honestly say, “I can’t wait to be in labour!”

To provide further support for expectant parents, the Sunshine Coast private midwives participated in ‘World Breastfeeding Week’ from August 1 to 7, 2013. Some objectives of the week included:

  • To draw attention to the importance of peer support in helping mothers establish and sustain breastfeeding.
  • To inform individuals of the highly effective benefits of peer counselling and unite efforts to expand peer counselling programmes. 
  • To identify local community support contacts for breastfeeding mothers, that women can go to for help and support after giving birth**.   

Mary explains further, “The relationship between a private midwife and her client is a mutually trusting partnership and that trust empowers women to open and surrender to the process of birth. Research shows that the mums who are familiar with their private midwife experience less premature labours, less inductions, less interventions, less postnatal depression and experience a higher rate in successful breastfeeding outcomes.

In the ‘Circle of Care Program’, when parents visit the Sunshine Coast private midwives for the very first time – they will have a highly personalised individual assessment whereby they will receive antenatal packs and education resources. This is a unique program that offers parents the opportunity to know their midwife who will birth with them in their choice of either their home or a hospital.  Throughout the pregnancy, mums-to-be, will be cared for by their private homebirth midwife who will provide pregnancy checkups, education, and support in a nurturing and tranquil group setting.

The Sunshine Coast private midwife says, “‘Circle of Care’ is not exclusive: it is for all pregnant woman, regardless of their health problems or concerns. Whatever stage in their pregnancy, whether they see us just for antenatal or postnatal care, or whether they choose to have their own midwife all the way, couples will find that there is something for every women.”

“Our women will have their own midwife and a known backup midwife on call for them 24/7 for any unexpected situations, ensuring all their questions are answered and any concerns addressed,” adds Mary.
