Transforming Maternity Care

Our vision is to be influential in transforming maternity services to better meet the needs of women and their families.

Our Collaborative is challenging the way maternity care is currently being delivered in Australia and across the globe.

Our goal is to drive the reform of maternity services to provide a primary care model that is midwife-led in the community, is accessible to all and is centred around respecting women’s’ choices. Read more about us.

Dynamic (building workforce capacity), Evolving (showing how to make the change), Progressive (making the change), Action-focused (evaluating the change).
