Why Should I Choose A Private Midwife?
Women who choose to have private care will develop trusting relationships with their midwives, and are more likely to achieve a natural birth and be more successful with breastfeeding. Making the decision to choose a private midwife has a lot of benefits.
- It enables you to have greater control and choice over your pregnancy, birthing options and postnatal care
- Greater attention and focus on you as you work closely with your midwife
- Receive continuity of care from your midwife

Do I Need Private Health Insurance?
No. You do not need private health insurance to use our services. If you do have private health insurance, your costs will vary, as private health funds offer rebates on all of our services. Contact your private health fund to find out exactly what your policy covers.
Do I Need To See A GP or Obstetrician During Pregnancy?
If you have a low risk pregnancy and there have been no complications developed throughout your pregnancy, you will not need to see a GP or Obstetrician for pregnancy related concerns.
All midwives at Coastal Midwives work closely with Obstetricians and follow Australian College of Midwives (ACM) guidelines, which will guide them when to refer you to an Obstetrician for consultation if required. If your GP is managing any existing conditions, you will need to continue seeing them throughout your pregnancy. We encourage you to visit your GP after you have been discharged from midwifery services.
