Paper focuses on consumer view of health and community services during pregnancy, at birth, and in the first few months after birth from the perspective of 146 mothers living in four areas of Victoria - Cranbourne, Melton, Bellarine Peninsula and Ballarat. Regardless of income mothers were generally happy with services, the major exception being lack of public transport.
