"Community Midwifery Program (CMWA) "

About: Armadale-Kelmscott Memorial Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

I had a second fantastic experience with the Community Midwifery Program (CMWA) .

The one-on-one continued care of the midwife assigned to me for the duration of my pregnancy, the birth and the post natal care was, in my view, outstanding.

Unfortunately this time the collaboratve arrangements meant that an obstetrician over-ruled home birth the day I went into labour for reasons that turned out to be false/un-founded.

My midwife showed exemplary levels of commitment to safety, and exemplary level of skill.

I would recommend this service to any family that is willing to inform themselves and would like the opportunity to have, what I believe to be a most fulfilling and empowering experience.

Was I disappointed that I did not birth at home? Yes. Did I still have a wonderful birth experience with my midwife right along side me in the hospital? Yes. Would I recommend this service? Yes absolutely.
