Please note we do not have professional indemity insurance (PII) for labour & birth. Midwives have a regulatory requirement to have PII but are unable to obtain the product due to a world wide shortage of  PII for midwives. Therefore midwives in private practice have been provided with an exemption for homebirth until December 2021.

The midwives working with the practice have PII for antenatal and postnatal care with MIGA. Insurance policies are issued by Medical Insurance Australia Pty Ltd
