PeakCare invites you to join us for a virtual seminar on an inspirational initiative providing a holistic approach to pre and post natal care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and their babies

About Birthing in our Community – An Indigenous Model of Care

Like all mothers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women want a choice in where and with whom they give birth. They also want care that is safe and considerate of the emotional, cultural and spiritual safety of the individual woman.

Kristie Watego, General Manager, Family Health and Wellbeing Services, Institute for Urban Indigenous Health, will provide a presentation on the program, the results they have achieved, and how this program was initiated.

What is the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health?

The Institute for Urban Indigenous Health (IUIH)  is a regional not-for-profit Community Controlled Health Service that leads the planning, development and delivery of health and family wellbeing services and employment pathways to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population of South East Queensland.

Utilising the IUIH System of Care, IUIH empowers Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing through the delivery of a comprehensive range of services in partnership with Member Community Controlled Health Services.
