Waijungbah Jarjums means place of mother and child and is a one-stop community service that provides continuity of care for First Nations People. Our service offers continuity of care by a known Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander midwife and child health nurse from conception to the first 1000 days (2 years).

Truly co-designed, the model was built in consultation with families and through meaningful partnerships with the local community and organisations with one goal: to not only safely bring jarjums into the world but welcome them into the community.
