Bullabulla Maternal & Child Health Team

Bullabulla means butterfly
This program aims to help you reach your full potential as parents.

Our service, while similar to the program offered by the hospital midwives, is specially tailored to your Aboriginal family. We work as a team. We look on family strengths and help you to develop and recognize these and grow in the areas you realize change needs to happen. We will help you seek the information you need so your pregnancy and birth can be what you want it to be. Our educational gatherings will be run with Kelly –Aboriginal Maternal Health Worker and alongside Aboriginal elders. These will try to be flexible to your needs. Transport can be arranged if needed and we can do these in your home so your family can be involved.

We have a special interest in supporting Teen Parents.
