Our mission is to make quality, evidence-based health information and education accessible to Queensland women so that they have the confidence to make informed decisions about their health and enjoy healthy living at every stage of life.
Who we work with
Women’s Health Queensland Wide Inc (Women's Health) are specialists in women's health across the lifespan. From the south east to the far north, Queensland women rely on us to help them make informed decisions about their health and wellbeing. Our specialist team of health professionals provide coaching, support and information to women of all ages and at all stages of their health journey.
We have a commitment to proactively reaching women who:
- are experiencing disadvantage
- live in regional, rural and remote locations
- who may otherwise not have access to support or quality healthcare
- are unable to speak openly about their health issues
- are of any age
- come from all social and cultural demographics, including those from an Indigenous background.
I first connected with my midwife Kirsty towards the end of my pregnancy and always looked forward to our calls. It was great to have an ongoing relationship with the same midwife and for someone to focus on me, as well as my baby.
After having the baby, Kirsty was there for me when I was at my worst. I was sleep deprived, feeling overwhelmed by conflicting advice and had recently been diagnosed with postnatal depression (PND).
I had this light bulb moment during our conversation where she said to put aside all the advice and asked me "what did I want to do?” It was hard to find my way as a gentle mum, and her words of encouragement gave me the confidence and clarity to parent the way I wanted. She offered sensible and common sense approaches, and I really appreciated that I could be myself.
