Abstract: This report summarises data from the 2003 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 2003. 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.
