Giving birth is one of the most miraculous and transforming events in a woman’s life.

It is truly unforgettable and will have an effect on your self-confidence and relationship with your child. We believe that it’s important that your experience of pregnancy and childbirth is positive and loving.

If you decide to have your baby with us, we will support you wherever you choose to have your baby, whether it be at home, at Launceston Birth Centre or at the hospital.

Introducing the Launceston Birth Centre

The Launceston Birth Centre is Australia’s first private birth centre, founded in 1983. We are run by a consumer committee and serviced by a dedicated team of private midwives.

The Launceston Birth Centre’s ethical and professional foundations are built upon a belief in the immeasurable benefits of natural and family-centred childbirth. We proudly furnish this belief with our midwives’ many years of experience, versatility of care and safe practice.

Our Philosophy

… encourages a woman-centred focus in natural childbirth

… views pregnancy and childbirth as a normal physiological process not illness

… acknowledges the broader social, cultural, and physiological factors influencing childbirth

… advocates midwives as primary caregivers of women in normal birth

… emphasises a woman’s right to make informed choice in caregiver/s, place of labour and childbirth

… prioritises mother-baby bonding at all times
