Abstract RESEARCH AIM
To explore the mobility and migration of Indigenous mothers and their infants associated with transport to towns
with maternity hospitals from remote Indigenous communities. We will examine Census data for  an ‘excess’ in the five
towns with a maternity hospital and a ‘deficit’ at remote Indigenous communities and also look at the mobility and
migration patterns of mothers who recently gave birth.
