Services Australia, the federal agency responsible for forms, yes, unbelievably, there that is a government department for forms, requires new parents to update paperwork to include a new-born on their Medicare card. One of the questions asks the mother to sign off not as the mother, but as the 'birthing parent '. 
Attempting to do away with words such as, mother, him, her, she etc, by a very small fringe of people in society and replaced by ideological language as birthing mother is nothing more than a chapter out of The Handmaid's Tale , the novel by Margaret Attwood.

Services Australia actually provides Centrlink, Medicare and Child Support services.  "Forms" represent a small part of its remit as a means for residents tp advise or request information to assist them.  

Don't believe too many people who use and benefit from the above services could give two hoots about supposed wokeness.

Birthing parent as opposed to explaining possible circumstances of having an adoptive or foster parent on a form not able to accommodate that amount of information. Seems to be practical.

I recently saw a meme which read: ""I'd rather be woke, woke-like, wokeable, woke-aware and all things wokeness, than a fascist..."

 Must admit it gave me a laugh.

 I don't know anyone in my friend circle who ever uses the word 'woke'.

 It's an accusation from the extreme right, to make anyone left of centre seem like a dill...

 Woke up to yourself, Bob...

Wha? But an adoptive/ foster parent isn't the birthing parent. You mean they want adopted kids to find out who birthed them? I'm confused.

There wouldn't be a mother, would there, TJ? There'd be the inseminating father and the birthing father. Right?

Unless one of them wanted to be called the mother? ....

How does Bob get onto the form if he's provided his semen for the purposes of artificial insemination?  Question

Does a surrogate mother get a guernsey in all of this?  Shocked

And if so how or where does the person who produced a fertilized egg get a look in?  Stern Smile

So many questions, so few answers.  Cry

What about those crazy ladies who use a turkey baster and a male friends sperm to fertilise themselves.

Seems this was part of a pilot program introduced by the previous LNP govt.

Bill Shorten has sorted it out and the form will be scrapped.

Do adoptive parents and foster parents give birth to their kids now? Do trannies?Shocked

What is this form called? What is its purpose? I assume that they have some medical need to know who the biological parent is, genetics and all that, but what need is that?

Well if one's after Centrelink, Medicare or Child Support services the questions do appear warranted.  

However it's a complicated world we live in, a reality Bob has probably "woke" up to now.  Tongue
