The Best Start To Life: a national gathering is an initiative of Congress and CDU’s Molly Wardaguga Research Centre.

 
It follows on from the first Birthing on Country meeting, held in Mparntwe (Alice Springs) 10 years ago, where the Australian Maternity Services Inter-jurisdictional Committee, in collaboration with Congress, held the first national workshop to progress Australian Government commitment to Birthing on Country.


The conference provides an opportunity for delegates from across Australia to showcase new research and ideas, and to network and invest in a shared vision to address inequities in birthing services for First Nations mothers and babies.
