The Aboriginal Families Study is a research study that invited 344 women from across South Australia to talk about their birthing experiences. The study is in its second phase with researchers now wanting to reconnect with those women they spoke to over 5 years ago. So far, they have reconnected with over 100 mothers and 62 children.

The Aboriginal Families Study builds on a partnership between Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) and the Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia (AHCSA).

On Aboriginal Way radio, Kaliah Alice chats with Study Co-ordinator, Donna Weetra and Project Officer, Violet Buckskin, about the study and where to from here.
