Episode 141: Raising awareness of interconception care: what can we be doing to help women between pregnancies?


In this episode, we talk to Dr Sharon James, a Research Fellow and Project Manager based at the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at Monash University in Australia.

Title of paper: lnterconception care in Australian general practice: a qualitative study

Available at:

Interconception care (ICC) provides an opportunity to address risk factors contributing to poor pregnancy outcomes. However, GP perceptions on providing ICC are not well established. ICC is not a familiar concept for GPs, it is delivered opportunistically and there is lack of clarity as to what ICC should consist of. GPs also feel there is lack of engagement and perceived value by women.
