What We Do

The Australian Society for Psychosocial Obstetrics and Gynaecology is a professional multi-disciplinary association devoted to further understanding the psychosocial aspects of women's health, particularly in the field of obstetrics, gynaecology and reproductive medicine.

The strength of the Society is its multi-disciplinary membership and its informal, supportive meetings that foster interest in the communication, counselling and psychosocial aspects of women's health.

The Society welcomes health workers from all disciplines, including medicine, midwifery, nursing, psychology, social work, social sciences, and more.

The Society holds a national congress that moves yearly between States within Australia and sometimes off-shore. The topics debated reflect the Society’s breadth of interests, including psychosocial aspects of puberty, fertility, contraception, pregnancy, menopause and men’s reproductive health.

 

 

Why ASPOG?

The pace of technological development in obstetrics, gynaecology and reproductive medicine has created an urgent need for greater awareness of the psychosocial and ethical implications of these advances.

At the same time, our understanding of the psychosocial and psychosexual aspects of women’s health is constantly expanding and changing. The need for a society such as ASPOG is even greater today than when it was first founded in 1973, by Adelaide obstetrician and gynaecologist Dr Roger Wurm.
