Health & wellbeing in the age of COVID-19
With usual routines and some healthy activities restricted because of COVID-19 concerns, Women’s Health Queensland is providing valuable advice and 100% free online services to meet a range of health and wellbeing needs.
- For women needing pregnancy, antenatal, birthing or postnatal information and support, we have a range of free, online groups run by a registered midwife. To register for any of these sessions, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1800 017 676.
- Would you like ongoing care with the same midwife through pregnancy and beyond? Register for our Midwife Check-in phone service.
- Are looking for ways to relax and get a bit of gentle exercise.
Then why not join our qualified yoga instructor, Hannah, in Women’s Health Queensland’s online yoga session?
Or, perhaps, enjoy a quick, 3-minute online meditation with Hannah?
- For nutrition advice, you can join one of our small, closed groups by registering via email at email@example.com or call 1800 017 676.
- Our Health Information Line is a free information and referral service for all Queensland women. This service is staffed by nurses, midwives and social workers. We can answer health questions on a range of topics including periods, endometriosis, pregnancy, parenting, contraception, menopause, depression, sexual health, incontinence, fertility, pap smears, pregnancy and much more.
For this service, you can call 1800 017 676, email us, or ask a question online.
Translation and interpreting services are also available for women from non-English speaking backgrounds. If you require an interpreter, please access the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) on 13 14 50.
NB: we are only able to respond to queries from residents of Queensland, Australia.
- If you feel life is getting on top of you, you can access our free, confidential telephone counselling services by calling 1800 017 676. This service is available to all Queensland women, regardless of where you live, from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. And you can book ongoing counselling appointments with the same qualified counsellor so you won’t need to retell your story.
- If at any time you feel unsafe because of actual or potential family or domestic violence, we have reposted Domestic Violence Action Centre’s succinct list of tips to follow to help keep you safe.
- Remember to check in regularly to our social media pages – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube – where posts and videos will keep you up to date with ongoing health and wellbeing tips.
