What do maternity models of care look like?

In 2021, around 830 maternity models of care were in use across Australia. The characteristics of these models of care can be explored in the following sections. This includes information about: the 11 categories these models fall into (major model category); the designated and collaborative carers who provide these models of care (maternity carers); the extent of continuity of carer within the models (continuity of carer); whether the models target a particular group of women (target groups); and the antenatal and postnatal care and birth settings within the models.
