Abstract

Australia is one of the safest countries in the world in which to give birth or to be born. Despite this, women in rural areas continue to experience higher rates of maternal mortality(Kildea et al. 2008) and fetal and neonatal deaths (AIHW 2005).

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women are three times as likely to die as non-Indigenous women, with a maternal mortality ratio of 16.4 deaths per 100,000 Indigenous women giving birth (AIHW 2014). Women also express dissatisfaction with the absence of choice in both rural and metropolitan areas (Department of Health 2009).
