Supporting Aboriginal People To Prepare for Pregnancy


Time: 7.30pm - 8.30pm

Online Webinar

GPs are well placed to deliver brief advice on healthy behaviours to Aboriginal men and women planning pregnancy. Having the support tools to ensure this advice can be acted upon is essential. The Get Healthy Service provides free telephone health coaching that assists Aboriginal people to set goals, building confidence to improve their wellbeing and health behaviours for pregnancy. A referral to the service can provide an adjunct to your care, and give prospective parents support between visits.
