Specific to the BiOC team
The BiOC (Birthing in our Community) model provides maternity care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and their families and enables women to be cared for and supported by a group of known midwives. The model has been demonstrated in research to improve outcomes for Aboriginal women and babies. What makes this model so successful is the inclusion of wrap around services including Family Support Workers (FSW) who play a critical role in supporting the cultural intent of the model in connecting and securing care pathways for women and families. There is a strong focus on social and emotional health and well-being, mother and infant attachment and ready access to social work, perinatal psychology and parenting support. Linkages with local family doctors at Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations are actively fostered.
