We are organising a postcard campaign for supporters to contact their local Primary Care Trust. We are asking PCTs to ensure women have access to community caseload midwifery and homebirth, and to commission local independent midwives. Look up the address of your PCT here. If you want a supply of our specially printed postcards send us an email at , or you may like to write a letter to your PCT Chief Executive.

Email Your MP

You can now email your MP through our campaign on the Voice Your Views website. Your MP will be located based on your postcode, and a template is automatically provided outlining the issues to which you can add your own comments.

You can also find out your MP's email address through the BBC MP Database page or the UpMyStreet service (which offers a form to send a message to them). also offers an easy way to send a quick message. At the moment we are trying to get as many MPs as possible to sign up to John Barons Early Day Motion. Please go to Parliament EDM database to check if yours has signed and if not  email him/her.

You might have contacts in the insurance market, to the press or other media or with political representatives please talk to them and get their support.


Please pass on any ideas that you think might help our cause. You might have fundraising, campaigning or writing skill or you might have friends who do and would be happy to support our cause.

You can contact your local newspaper or radio station.

Please let us know and we can pass on your ideas to the relevant working group.
Tell anyone who will listen about the care we provide and what this new legislation could mean to mothers, babies and midwives.

We are still welcoming any comments or a description of your experience with independent midwives for our women's voices section.
