Alum Cliffs Home Birth Services provides midwifery care and lactation consultancy for women wishing to birth at home, in Hobart and Southern Tasmania. We are a small group of committed midwives, passionate about providing care in the community.
Birth is to be celebrated and not feared.
We believe pregnancy and birth are normal, natural events in a woman’s life.
We uphold a high standard of care for pregnant women and their families through one-to-one continuous care with a chosen midwife throughout pregnancy, birth and early parenting.
We support a woman’s right to choose to birth in the familiarity, safety and comfort of her own home.
We guard the process and safety of birth with a minimal intervention approach, working in partnership with mothers, and empowering women to trust their own intuition and ability in birth and parenting.
We believe breastfeeding is a natural continuation of birthing and an fundamental part of bonding, nurturing and parenting.
