Centred Midwifery Group Practice Inc (CeMGP)
Wow it is official….this has been a dream of mine for some time and became a reality today when the Dept of Commerce called me today to confirm our application for incorporation was successful. We are the first private Midwifery Group Practice for WA this is a huge step. I am so proud this is a fantastic achievement. We are a fantastic team of dedicated Midwives;
This idea has been mulling around in my head since returning to WA 7 years ago… however it is only since the Maternity Reform has the idea become a reality…. Women being able to access Medicare Rebates for midwifery services.
In July 2010 I talked about the idea, shared with a few people and in August asked a group of equally passionate women to come on board with this concept…..We met at my home for a day workshop and nutted out some key ideas…. One of which was the name Centred Midwifery Group Practice (CeMGP). I will not blog today the story from then till now I will save that for future blogs…. This is to share our fantastic news and say we are here….. watch this space…..for our Website, Facebook page and blog...all being designed as I type....
Our Philosophy: “We put you at the centre of your experience”. We are group of committed midwives, dedicated to providing safe, competent, continuity of care, individualised and professional midwifery care and support to the well woman and her baby throughout pregnancy, birth and early parenthood.
I am so excited I can hardly contain myself.... this is so huge it is a dream come true......more to come in the coming days.....this is just the beginning...... of a wonderful fruitful experience with women and birth.
