Go Girl Australia
Cycling for midwives, women, normal birth and breastfeeding
Who is Go Girl Australia you might well ask..... it is someone that you may well know..... Marg Phelan - Midwife
Go Girl Australia
I met Marg in 2003 when she was the was very involved with the College of Midwives (ACM) at state and national level, including a two-year term as National President. "Marg sees pregnancy, labour and birth as a normal physiological process, and believes that for normal pregnancies, homebirth is a safe and enormously rewarding experience. She recently had the honour and privilege to be midwife for daughter-in-law Mei Mei and son Paul during the homebirth of their beautiful boy in December 2008".
Now working in the Darwin Homebirth Service, Marg is able to offer the model of care to which she believes all women are entitled.
Go Girl Australia is a not-for-profit venture that aims to promote continuity of care from a known midwife, normal birth and breastfeeding.
