Winnunga Nimmityjah AHS has a community midwifery team of 2 midwives and one Aboriginal Access Worker. The midwifery team offers antenatal and postnatal care, community at home support, baby health checks, breastfeeding support, immunisations, and a range of women's health services. Our midwives work closely with ACT hospitals, and assist in ensuring continuity of care between Winnunga Nimmityjah AHS and hospital services.
Winnunga Nimmityjah AHS has a comprehensive child immunisation program, and our patients are encouraged to access this. This also allows us to follow up on our patients' progress with post-partum recovery, and to assist them with any needs in relation to caring for their infants.
It is vitally important for high risk clients to have access to Aboriginal specific, culturally appropriate midwifery services, as many choose not access mainstream services without support. Winnunga Nimmityjah provides a quality service in an environment of understanding and respect.
