This study presents the findings of a holistic economic evaluation of the Daruk community's Aboriginal community-controlled midwifery service in Western Sydney. Antenatal clinic records from the New South Wales Midwives Data Collection for the period 1991-1996 were examined for antenatal attendance and perinatal outcomes. Qualitative analysis of interviews and focus groups was also undertaken. The findings highlighted the value of the clinic to the Aboriginal community and the importance of improved antenatal services and outcomes, with programmes representing 'value for money'.
