Indigenous Birthing in an Urban Setting
A partnership between three Brisbane-based organisations is providing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families with culturally capable, woman-centred maternity care in the community.
Building on Our Strengths
The Building On Our Strengths project aims to implement Birthing on Country in urban Queensland and rural New South Wales.
Caring for Mum on Country
Caring for Mum on Country is a participatory-action-research project working in collaboration with Yolŋu (Aboriginal) women in North East Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory, Australia. Our project is guided by best-practice ‘Birthing on Country’ RISE principles: Redesign health service; Invest in the maternal, newborn and child health workforce; Strengthen Indigenous families; and Embed Indigenous governance and control.
1+1 Project
The 1+1 = A Healthy Start to Life Project: Targeting the year before and the year after birth in Aboriginal children in remote areas was a three stage baseline, intervention and post-intervention study designed to improve maternal and infant health for remote dwelling Aboriginal families in Maningrida and Wadeye, Northern Territory, Australia.

Birthing on Country acknowledges the traditional custodians across the lands on which we live and work, and we pay our respects to Elders both past and present.
