This means we have the mother, baby & family at the centre of the care, and all of the services support her as needed. The continuity model ensures that you supported by the same caregiver(s) and you know who is looking after you.
About us & Our Vision
MAMA has been established by midwives Kelly Langford and Jan Ireland to provide the benefit of generations of midwife wisdom and experience to the community. Jan & Kelly have close to 50 years experience between them, and have the wisdom of a fabulous team of Midwives and practitioners surrounding them with the same vision; to support you.
The MAMA centre in Kensington, Victoria, is a hub for midwives (in practice or in training) and mothers (experienced or expecting) to access services and support. It was the first of its kind in Victoria.
Our vision is greater access to independent advice and continuity of care for mothers and families, empowering decision making and individualised care, and in turn reducing postnatal depression.
Our statistics reflect our passion for what we do, take a look:
In the 6 years we have been open, we have supported over 1000 families across Victoria, from preconception to the postnatal phase.

This is within international recommendations with a 10%-15% caesarean section rate is recommended by the World Health Organisation* (as the ideal amount to minimize maternal and infant morbidity and mortality), as opposed to the national average of only 65%.
We also have a Breastfeeding rate of 99% at 4 months postnatal compared to a national average of 40%.
