Promoting equality in parenting, supporting families to thrive
This free webinar is facilitated by ACM Life Member Professor Linda Sweet and presented by Rachael Dooley from Health Ability.

The arrival of a families’ first baby presents a unique opportunity to disrupt gendered expectations, promote equal relationships, build better balance in parenting and ultimately support families to thrive. healthAbility’s Baby Makes 3 is an evidenced-based, education and social change initiative to build gender equality. As a health promotion intervention, Baby Makes 3 shapes long-term attitudes and social norms about parenting by challenging traditional gendered expectations of becoming a parent.

In 2019, a co-design process with six antenatal and maternity services in Victoria developed a whole of setting framework that identified intervention points for implementation of strategies to strengthen gender equality in antenatal and maternity services.

The webinar will provide an opportunity to explore;

- Why gender equality is important in antenatal and maternity services
- Applying a gender equality lens to antenatal and maternity services
- Practical strategies and tools that midwives can incorporate in practice
