Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Maternity Care
Providing culturally safe maternity care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and their families is essential to improve birthing outcomes.
This network was created to share culturally safe models of care and discuss issues that disproportionately impact Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women during pregnancy.
Chair: expression of interest
Who is it for?
Managers, clinicians, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers (A&TSIHWs), and Health Practitioners (A&TSIHPs) interested in networking about how to best provide culturally safe and equitable care.
- Birthing in Our Community (BiOC) recognise that our current maternity services do have structural barriers in providing culturally safe maternity services and this is coming at an unacceptable cost.
- The Unseen Bias: How do we move beyond racism in healthcare? – Recognising the impact of Service Institutional Racism and moving from “Safe to Brave” to become an agent of change
- Partnering with Consumers – A New Way Forward with a social equity lens – Educating the maternity health care sector through consumer-led initiatives can shift the paradigm towards woman-centred, culturally appropriate, evidence-based care.
