Mothers babies and water bottles

New resource for pregnant Aboriginal women

Feb 06, 2023

Health Promotion and Galambila Aboriginal Maternal and Infant Health Service (AMIHS) have recently launched co-designed stainless steel water bottles.

They were developed to encourage women to consume more water during pregnancy, as was identified by AMIHS as a need in the community.

The culturally specific bottle includes beautiful Aboriginal artwork, local Aboriginal language and contact details for the Get Healthy in Pregnancy Service.

The bottles have been distributed to all antenatal and AMIHS sites across the MNCLHD, and are given to Aboriginal pregnant women at their antenatal appointments.

Health Promotion Officer and Dietician BriEllen Fussell welcomed the initiative.

“We were very happy to collaborate on this initiative to support Aboriginal pregnant women within our community,” Ms Fussell said.
