Dr Sarah Ireland discusses her work in the remote region of Arnhem Land

"Being a researcher in the Northern Territory of Australia is one of the most unique opportunities that I can think of, I get to swap the office for being on country”. Dr Sarah Ireland talks about her work as a Medical Anthropologist in the remote region of Arnhem Land.

Her research project called "Caring for Mum on Country" looks at how Indigenous knowledge can be used to empower women to become "Doula", Indigenous childbirth companions.
