Your Own Private Midwifery Practice Getting it Right Seminar Melbourne
18th October 2019 at 9:00 am - 4:30 pm$210.00 – $250.00
This full day Private Midwifery Practice Melbourne seminar is aimed at midwives interested in setting up a private practice from scratch and midwives already in private practice. We will explore the nuts and bolts of setting a midwifery practice, skills needed for private practice, successful running of the practice, and planning for the future. You will take home a comprehensive resource portfolio to help you start and run a private midwifery practice.
A midwife in private practice is able to provide continuity of care to families through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. July 1st 2010 saw the advent of professional indemnity (PI) insurance for all midwifery services except homebirth. November 1st 2010 heralded the start of Medicare rebates for women choosing care from an eligible midwife who has a collaborative relationship with doctor/s.
While the new system is not perfect, midwives have an unprecedented opportunity to work in private practice providing one-to-one midwifery care to women and their families. Midwives can practice to the full scope of their skills in private midwifery practice and now be covered by PI insurance. Women benefit from continuity of midwifery care in the community and have the benefit of government funding for the service and/or access to health fund rebates.

- Explore key aspects of setting up and running a midwifery practice
- Examine different models of private midwifery practice
- Explore midwifery business plan development
