Maternity at Waminda
Our Maternity Care is a continuation of thousands of years of knowledge & practice, led by our Elders & Aunties, to take back control & ensure our Mingas (Mothers) birth healthy, beautiful Gudjagas (babies).
These programs are part of Waminda’s “Push Back” initiative, that works towards challenging and changing the narratives and attitudes that are imposed on First Australian’s by colonial structures.
