Abstract: This report summarises data from the 2006 Northern Territory (NT) Midwives’ Collection. It includes population characteristics of mothers, maternal health status, antenatal information, conditions and procedures used in labour and childbirth as well as birth outcomes of all births that occurred in 2006. While the NT Midwives’ Collection contains information on both NT resident and interstate residents who gave birth in the NT, the focus of this report is NT residents who gave birth in the NT. Notes and Corrections: On 24 October 2011 an error was observed in table 32. There has been an update to the introduction and to Table 32. An amended version of the document and the previous version are presented below.
Description: The primary purpose of the report is to inform, and encourage professional discussion regarding the health of women and their babies. This report will assist policy makers and health planners to provide better services to the community. In addition, this report aims to provide feedback to midwives, Aboriginal Health Workers, community health nurses and medical practitioners involved with maternal and child health. The NT Midwives’ Collection is a population-based census of all births that occurred in the NT, including births in both public and private hospitals, planned home births, births in community health centres, and other non-hospital births. All live births and stillbirths of at least 20 weeks gestation or with a birthweight of at least 400 grams are included.
