Description

This video has been produced for midwives, nurses and Aboriginal Health Workers to help them provide culturally safe maternity care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mothers.

In the video a midwife explains the process involved when performing a new born baby assessment before being discharged from hospital.

The video highlights the importance of having the parents present at the examination so the midwife can explain and discuss each step of the examination and advise if any signs or symptoms of health problems the parents become aware of, where to seek help.

The video also highlights the vital role of the Aboriginal Liaison Officer in this process.

The video was produced in partnership with the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO), Koori Maternity Services and Maternity services program.
