Mothers, Babies and Families Health

MBF ImageDrawing upon UniSA's recognised strengths in nursing and midwifery, the Mothers, Babies and Families: Health Research Group aims to optimise health outcomes by contributing to research in a variety of population health areas including pregnancy/prenatal health and wellbeing, women's health, the health of infants, children and young people, family health, and men's health.

Members' individual research interests are broad and include midwifery models of care, breastfeeding, substance use and pregnancy, postnatal depression and mental health, midwifery and infant health in developing countries and Indigenous communities, cross-cultural issues, midwifery education, men’s health and paternal and family supports.

Part of the Nursing, Midwifery and Mental Health research concentration within the Sansom Institute for Health Research, the group is based at the School of Nursing and Midwifery at UniSA's City East campus.
