Looking for your chance to make a difference?
South Coastal Babbingur Mia provides culturally secure social and emotional wellbeing services for individuals who identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander. We offer a friendly flexible service to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community throughout Rockingham and Kwinana. The staff members work together to support women, children, new mums and men for good health and social and emotional wellbeing. This service is delivered in both an outreach setting and onsite.
We are currently seeking a part-time Midwife, to complete our Enhanced Aboriginal Child Health Services Team.

This role delivers care predominantly in the outreach setting to Aboriginal families in the local area. The role is therefore diverse, flexible, and must be responsive to the unique needs of individual women and their families.
The Midwife will work in partnership with women to give the necessary support, care, and advice during the ante-natal and post-natal period. The Midwife will also offer maternal and child health guidance and support to women and their families during the perinatal period and provide linkages to services which will assist families to lead a healthier lifestyle. Advocacy work, referrals and engagement with external agencies are essential to working with clients under this program.
