Pregnant lady with sarongThe Community Midwifery Program (CMP) is a unique service available to Perth women experiencing a low risk pregnancy. We pride ourselves in protecting, promoting and supporting normal birth with a high percentage of our clients choosing to give birth in water.

The CMP provides safe, evidence-based, continuity of care from a known midwife throughout pregnancy, labour, birth and up to two weeks postnatally. The CMP can support you to have your baby at home, at the Family Birth Centre or Kalamunda Birth Unit, or in a public hospital (domino birth) within your catchment area.

The CMP is a publicly funded service, managed by King Edward Memorial Hospital. The CMP follows evidence based policies and guidelines to ensure safe outcomes, including the WA Health Policy for Publicly Funded Homebirths.

The CMP is delivered in partnership with TheBumpWA who provide low cost pregnancy and early parenting classes, lactation consultation and midwifery support to birthing families.
