About Families and Early Years Program

Families and Early Years Program is proud to partner with Metro South Health to deliver a community-based antenatal service for eligible newly arrived, refugee, and migrant women living in Logan, Queensland.

The service is facilitated by the SSI Gateway and aims to improve birthing outcomes for babies born in Logan. Evidence shows that a woman who receives care from a Midwife throughout the duration of pregnancy and birth is more likely to have a normal birth of a healthy baby at term, have a more positive experience of labour and birth, be more satisfied with her care, and successfully breastfeed.

We work closely with Midwives to provide wrap-around support to women and families by linking them in with internal and external services for housing, employment, health and financial wellbeing support.

In addition, the Family and early years program includes:

Community Hubs

Health Impact Project

Child Health Pathways

We support pregnant women to access quality and comprehensive antenatal care.
We ensure coordinated care during and after childbirth, including access to birthing suites, postnatal care, and breastfeeding support.
We provide high quality healthcare that is responsive, sensitive and accepting of cultural needs and preferences.
