save homebirth

from July next year women will no longer have the right to CHOOSE either their caregiver or place of birth. To me this is criminal - no I don't home birth but my dream birth would be a home water birth with an independant midwife - now while thats never going to happen for me I want that choice to be available to my children.
Why can we choose to have a caesarian section or an abortion but not home birth?

I think we all need to do something - this is importrant for all of us whether we home birth or not. Surprisingly to me the person behind this - the health minister is not only a woman but a mother. Shame on you Nicola Roxon - surely she can see what a step backwards this is for women's rights
