This is the third national release of data on the maternity ‘models of care’ available to women in Australia. In 2023, around 1,000 models of care were reported as being in use across 251 maternity services in Australia. This report explores the characteristics of these models, including the 11 major model categories they fall into, the women they are designed for, the maternity carers involved in providing them, and the extent of continuity of carer within them.
