Submission to Inquiry into Perinatal Services

In July, we made our first submission to a Parliamentary Inquiry as part of the Victorian Inquiry into Perinatal Services. Parliamentary inquiries offer a great opportunity for people in the community and organisations like ours to be heard and to shape public health policy. Making a submission formed part of our broader mission at Birth for Humankind to advocate for a more inclusive maternal health system and improved outcomes for birthing women through continuous and culturally competent birth support.

We hope that ours and other submissions contribute to a more complete understanding of the availability, quality and safety of services being delivered to mothers and babies across Victoria, and to systemic change that is more inclusive of many women currently marginalised by the Victorian maternal health system.
