Connection is what sustains the spirit and the soul. We will be posting positive messages from our members and staff. Let’s share our thoughts, feelings and experiences. We may not be physically together but we are still a family, the RANZCOG family, your family. Written messages of up to 200 words or short, 30 second, videos can be sent to Andre Khoury, RANZCOG Head of Communications and Public Affairs at [email protected]

We will run contributions on the RANZCOG Wall in our newsletter Connect.


Here is a post from Dr Sarah Moore, GP Obstetrician, Busselton

We had a maternity services meeting at our hospital on Friday to talk about how we are going to support one another in the coming months. Consequently, we set up a WhatsApp group and we’ve been posting memes, podcasts, gratitude messages and good news about women who have birthed in our hospital to keep our spirits up. I’ve offered to do a live guided meditation for the team one evening this week, and I intend to make it a weekly offering for anyone who wants to join in. I must say we have all been looking out for each other more than ever and I know that this will make us stronger and even more compassionate to our colleagues, our women and our community.
