Fundraiser for midwife Sally McCrae

Homebirth is an expression of self-reliance and a strong focus on community and the local so HRN fully supports the movement.

On accepting her induction onto the Hepburn Shire Women’s Honour Roll, Sally McCrae said
“I’m passionate about supporting and empowering women and their families to birth their babies safely and naturally the way they desire.” 

Now, our freedom to birth at home is again threatened. Like many independent midwives in Australia, Sally is facing increased pressure from the medical profession to justify her homebirth practice.

Midwife Support Victoria is holding a fund-raiser to help Sally McCrae with legal costs. Please join us in showing your support for Sally and keeping birth choices an option for Australian women.

Please join Jen and Tara on Saturday 26 June,  2pm-5pm Daylesford Town Hall supper room (back of Town Hall) to show your support for an amazing woman. Donation $15.

The afternoon includes a special film showing of The Big Stretch (a film celebrating natural birth), entertainment and afternoon tea.

If you had a homebirth with Sally please bring along a photo of your baby or family for our Baby Board. (Photos returned afterwards.)

RSVP to Jen Bray on bray_jen@hotmail.com or 5348 2216 or Tara Duffy on 5348 3518.
Please spread the word.
