I am notated as:
"An eligible midwife competent to provide pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatal care and qualified to provide the associated services and order diagnostic tests and investigations required for midwifery practice in accordance with relevant state and territory legislation" under section 225(p) of the National Law.
Well I already knew all that but the really good news is that now I am also eligible for a Medicare provider number... This my friends means that women can claim for private midwifery services... Not a bad thing at all.
And my friend boldly birthed her forth child in the wee hours of this morning; today is a very good day indeed.
