Abstract: The Review of Birthing Services in the Northern Territory (the Review) was one of the initial projects funded by the Alternative Birthing Services Program in the NT. The project was commissioned by the Women's Advisory Council, administered by Territory Health Services and funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Family Services. Many individual women, community groups and health professionals shared their knowledge and experience and provided input into the review. The project was documented and the recommendations drafted by Cynthia Croft following consultations undertaken by Sue McKinnon. The Review sought to examine and make recommendations on: • the current practices of hospital and non hospital service providers; • models of service delivery; • the role and education of service providers; and • financial and legal issues related to birthing in the NT. The Review of Birthing Services was completed in 1992 and recommendations were forwarded for consideration to Territory Health Services (THS) from the Women's Advisory Council. THS Executive nominated members to a Review Working Party to consider the findings and make recommendations regarding the outcomes of the Review.
