The Community Midwifery Program (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 for two to four weeks in the post natal period.

The CMP pride themselves in protecting, promoting and supporting natural birth with a high percentage of clients choosing to give birth in water. The CMP can support you to have your baby at home, at the Family Birth Centre (based at King Edward Memorial Hospital) or Kalamunda Birth Unit, or in a public hospital. This is a publicly funded service, governed by WA Health and delivered in partnership with TheBumpWA. The CMP follows evidence based policies and guidelines to ensure safe outcomes.
