Encore Health embodies the belief that educating women can alter the traditional balance of power within the family, leading to changes in decision-making and allocation of habits, activities and accessing resources within the household to improve family health. As guardians of family health, women play a critical role in maintaining the health and well being of themselves, their families, and the greater community.
Education is essential in preconception, pregnancy and postpartum care; all focusing on optimising the health of every woman. Enhancing women’s health at every stage of life is an ongoing process that requires access to and the full participation of all components of the health care system, individually and as a community. Encore Health focuses on helping prevent complications and inform women about important steps they can take to protect their infant and ensure a healthy pregnancy and beyond. A pregnant woman who has a supportive network of family and educators around her will be able to access resources and information which will lead her to make the right choices for herself and the baby before, during and after pregnancy, and ultimately reflect in her plans for a healthy future.

“A woman’s health is her complete well being; physically, mentally and emotionally. It is not determined solely by biological factors and reproduction, but also by impact of workload, nutrition, stress, family and social dynamics, and many other factors.” – Dr Rachel Murphy
