A big win for Logan’s littlest residents

Logan’s Community Maternity and Child Health Hubs are moving closer to reality since funding for the exciting project was announced in May.

An oversight committee, including key participants from the original consultation process has been formed and will meet soon to begin guiding the implementation process for the Hubs.

Recruitment will soon begin for a Midwifery Unit Manager to lead the project which is expected to be operational by November with the Hubs being located to meet the diverse socioeconomic and cultural needs of our community.

The Hub concept was designed after research revealed hundreds of mothers in Logan were not accessing professional health care during or after pregnancy.

The Hubs will operate using a long-term, relationship-based community midwifery program to support expectant and new mothers. The service will be based in ultra-local community locations like neighbourhood and community centres.

The project is the result of the hard work of a number of groups and individuals from the community, service organisations and government working together to design a solution tailor made to support Logan mums.

It is expected the Hubs will provide support to between 500 and 600 women who were otherwise not accessing professional health care.
