Birthing on country

 

Overview

This research program is designed to investigate the best possible contemporary and culturally secure maternity care for Aboriginal women, who are birthing at an urban maternity facility.

The program will also evaluate the principles and morals for culturally secure maternity services, and identify the cultural competence development for midwives through their education.

The program, carried out by Murdoch University School of Nursing, started in June 2014, and will run for four years. It is funded by a National Health and Medical Research Council grant, and contributions from 13 stakeholders, including the Telethon Kids Institute and Murdoch University.
