Page last updated: 02 April 2013

Different women have different needs in relation to pregnancy and childbirth and require access to appropriate levels of care (AHMAC 2008). The level of care determines whether the woman is at the right place, at the right time, with the right health professional, for her clinical needs. Models of care should, as far as possible, provide a range of options at the same time as closely matching quality services to clinical needs (AHMAC 2008).
