The event is presented by the Indigenous Health Equity Unit at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health. The conference will bring together service providers, allied health professionals, community Elders and families to work together to drive health system reform to transform cycles of intergenerational trauma and ensure that all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander babies have the best possible start in life.

The conference will be framed around the metaphor of the Birthing Tree, representing a sacred place where women and babies go to seek safety and shelter during this critical time.
