Show your support for the Birthing on Country centre of excellence
Birthing on Country (BOC) is a continuation of thousands of years of knowledge and practice. BOC provides holistic maternal, child and family health care that embeds cultural integrity and safety during pregnancy, labour, birth, and postnatal period.
That’s why I am campaigning for federal government funding to support building an Aboriginal-led Birthing on Country Centre of Excellence as part of the Waminda (South Coast Women’s Health and Welfare Aboriginal Corporation) model of care.
Waminda has delivered culturally led comprehensive programs to the community for over 37 years.
The Birthing on Country model has been proven to improve premature birth outcomes in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and our families in the Shoalhaven deserve the best possible maternity care for future generations to come!
