Supporting women having Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander babies in pregnancy and beyond

Luciana Massi

My PhD is an exploratory study that examines a pregnancy to two years post-natal program designed to improve health, well-being and birthing outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and families. The first 1,000 days – from conception to two years – is a crucial time for childhood developmental milestones. The Australian Nurse Family Partnership Program (ANFPP) is an evidence-based, home visiting program supporting first-time mothers having Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander babies, through the first 1,000 days. The ANFPP is embedded within the Aboriginal community-controlled health sector, and is designed to be a holistic, woman-centred, culturally-safe, relationship-based program.

 

My PhD thesis evaluates qualitative data collected from interviews with 76 ANFPP clients and stakeholders, to assess the program's enablers: its strength-based approach and fostering of cultural and peer-group connections; and its challenges: operating alongside numerous maternal, infant and child health services requiring interagency service integration and collaboration. Ultimately, I seek to explore whether the ANFPP is empowering women to feel culturally safe while birthing, and to assess the program’s contribution as an important early investment in the future of First Nations children and communities in Australia.
