Launched on 23 September by Health Minister Rachel Stephen-Smith, the new Canberra Maternity Options single-entry-point service will help women to understand their options before making an informed decision on what pregnancy and birthing care would best suit them and their family. In this new system, there will be a single call to make at 02 5124 9977 to arrange a meeting with a midwife who can help you find the best public maternity care in the ACT. This will allow parents to be matched with a model of care that best suits their needs, close to home. It will also allow mothers to meet with a midwife early in their pregnancy.

The Canberra Maternity Options service will be active as of Monday 30 September.
