The Maternal and Newborn Unit provides leadership in relation to maternal and newborn health, wellbeing and healthcare. A healthy mother is essential to ensure the best outcomes for newborn and child health as well contributing to good health throughout the life cycle. Antenatal care in pregnancy provides a key opportunity to promote healthy behaviours and parenting skills, and to ensure that the woman and her family are linked with appropriate services within the health system.
