Corka Bubs and Deadly Mums

Working with community to reduce cannabis, alcohol use and social stress in pregnancy
Corka Bubs and Deadly Mums
Project Status: In progress
Project administered by: University of Adelaide

Aboriginal communities in South Australia have consistently said they seek support to address harmful effects of cannabis and alcohol use and stress in pregnancy.

This study will work with families and services to develop a culturally-responsive care package to empower women and their partner to address these issues.

The study will generate new knowledge about the feasibility and acceptability of the package in two Aboriginal antenatal clinics in two hospitals to inform broader implementation.

The painting is by Maude Parker - Pee Wee Paintings, December 2021.

The pregnant woman is surrounded by her family, friends, community, and service providers to give her support. Surrounding the woman are negative and positive energy flows. Her strengths are given by those who care for her during pregnancy, they are to keep her safe and protected and reassured for a safe and healthy delivery.

The colours in this paining represent women and families- yellow, orange, and mauve.
