The Community Midwifery Program
The CMP is a unique service available to Perth women experiencing a low risk pregnancy. The CMP provides safe, evidence-based, continuity of care from a known midwife throughout pregnancy, labour, birth and up to two weeks postnatally. We pride ourselves in protecting, promoting and supporting normal birth with a high percentage of our clients choosing to give birth in water.The CMP can support you to have your baby at home, at the Family Birth Centre or Kalamunda Birth Unit, or in a public hospital. Please note that due to staffing shortages CMP midwives are not currently able to attend women in labour for hospital births. However we can provide personalised antenatal and postnatal care for women choosing to birth in hospital.
The CMP is a publicly funded service, governed by WA Health and delivered in partnership with The Bump WA. The CMP follows evidence based policies and guidelines to ensure safe outcomes.
The Community Midwifery Program has 2 birthing rooms attached to Kalamunda hospital for exclusive use by CMP clients. These birthing rooms are Midwifery led and there is no Obstetric or Paediatric cover whilst birthing at Kalamunda – for this you would need to transfer to Swan District Hospital. The CMP Midwives run weekly antenatal and postnatal clinics in the Kalamunda space and also hold education sessions, mums and bubs and informative talks in the group room on many issues related to pregnancy birth and beyond.
