Listening to What Matters

13-Aug-2020

Listening to What Matters aims to understand the experiences of refugee background parents and the health and social care professionals caring for them in pregnancy and early parenthood during the COVID-19 pandemic in Victoria. 

The knowledge generated by the study will help to inform our short-and-long term responses to the pandemic, including the future re-introduction of Group Pregnancy Care. 

More information about the study design is available here

As the study is funded by the North West Melbourne PHN we are recruiting parents who live and professionals who work in the North and West PHN catchment area. We are recruiting parents as well as health and social care professionals (e.g. midwives, maternal and child health nurses, obstetricians, interpreters, social workers, GPs etc.)

Pregnancy Support Groups. 

Waan Tardif and Maria Toma have been busy supporting the Karen/Burmese and Assyrian Pregnancy Support Groups. 

As well as receiving regular calls to check on their health, families have been excited to engage with each other online and share their pregnancy experiences.
