Summary
World Wide Web site about birthing issues in the bush, Aboriginal health and culture; the website has been prepared by Aboriginal women with Sue Kildea, to be used as a resource for maternity service providers working in remote communities; a participatory action research approach was used to develop the site; the contents are mainly 'Women's Business' and there are some sections that should not be read by men; the women knew they could not monitor this once it was available on the Internet and rely on each individual's honesty and integrity to follow these wishes; the Aboriginal women involved in the project were not concerned about this as they said that Aboriginal men would not even try to look if they knew that it was women's business; the women were very happy to think that women all over the world would be able to read their stories, and some women suggested that men could read then too, particularly if they were involved in providing health services to women; Aboriginal communities all vary from each other and the messages here are about one community only; however the local wisdom and experience provides lessons that could be applied universally in many different settings [introduction]
