OPS3:The Aboriginal Family Birthing Program aims to improve birth outcomes for Aboriginal women and their families by providing culturally appropriate antenatal, birthing and postnatal care within a continuity of care framework with ongoing family support up to six weeks following the birth.

The Aboriginal Maternal and Infant Care (AMIC) Trainee will work as part of a primary health care team that includes midwives and doctors in the delivery of antenatal, birthing and postnatal care to Aboriginal women and their families contributing to:

The AMIC Trainee receives day-to-day supervision, support and on-going clinical training from Registered Midwives, AMIC Practitioners and Doctors within the primary health care team. In a reciprocal arrangement, the AMIC Trainee role is to develop the knowledge, skills and ability to provide advice, support and training in cultural issues, traditions and practices and to provide limited clinical care as delegated by the Midwife.
