New midwifery group at Canterbury Hospital

MEDICARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR MIDWIFERY CARE THROUGH THIS SERVICE! Fantastic news for the women in the Canterbury area and well done to the team at Canterbury who have worked really hard to implement their brand new midwifery group practice.

Data shows there is strong support for such services ...
