We provide publicly accessible events and training on improving the maternal health system to better support women experiencing disadvantage.
We also run training programs for maternity care and social support workers who want to improve their knowledge, skills and understanding about supporting women with a range of complex care needs during pregnancy, child birth and early parenting. Where relevant our training is accredited by relevant bodies, such as the Australian College of Midwives.
Upcoming events and webinars
Free Webinar: Preganancy and Homelessness
Thursday 10th December | 1pm AEDT
Women experiencing homelessness are often presented with a number of barriers to equitable maternal health care. In order to move towards equitable maternal health and wellbeing for all, a better understanding of these barriers is required. In this webinar, we will discuss the issue of pregnancy and homelessness, the research, projects and people who are driving a movement in improving the situation for these women and their babies.
We look forward to being joined by Dr Theresa Lynch, Dr Juliet Watson and Annie Watson for this discussion.
