There are no WA hospitals doing caseload only the Community Midwifery
I trust you know about the SA models and promises of more to came and NSW
has Ryde Belmont and hopefully Camden soon whilst
St George offes it at its birth centre and Homebirth service as I understand

> Hi Karen
> Birralee Maternity Service at Box Hill hospital has a small caseload
> Maternity Coalition published an article about it Birth Matters Vol 10.1
> March 06 'Know your midwife at Birralee' (authors Melody Bourne, Alice
> Barden and Helen Gordon.) Nic Dutton is one of the midwives in KYM there
> could fill you in with more information.
> My (very biased) observation:
> Most of the hospital midwives I have spoken to about caseload seem to
> it's a dirty word. Midwifery managers seem to like to stick to rosters,
> talk about their wonderful team models.
> There is a UK email list Caseload midwifery
> [log in to unmask]
> It has been quiet lately, but would be a link with international work. I
> have put a cc to that list - I think I'm still on it.
> You always come up with interesting big words. I learnt reciprocity from
> you, and now you'll have me talking about interdisciplinarity!
> All the best
