about this publication

Abstract: The Gomeroi gaaynggal program began in 2009, with a small team, small budget and high expectations. This program works in partnership with Aboriginal women in their pregnancy and after delivery to improve health outcomes, and the understanding of issues that impact on their health and the future health of their children. Gomeroi gaaynggal is both a community-focused ArtsHealth program working with mums, babies, aunties and Elders; and a science research study with mums to determine causes of premature and low birthweight delivery and early diagnosis of kidney disease in the unborn baby.
