Angela Coe

Angela is a proud Sovereign Wiradjuri woman from the Upper Bila Galari- Lachlan River, Cowra area of Central West NSW. A Mother to five boori’s (children) who are proud young Wiradjuri, Bundjalung, Biripi and Gumbaynggirr people.

As a child of the Black Rights Movement, growing up the fight for social and political justice was at the forefront. From the banks of the Bila Galari (Lachlan River) to inner City Sydney Angela experienced both the strength and resilience of the Wiradjuri Nation and vast injustices and inequality enforced on her people and all those who call inner-city Sydney home.  Leaving school and beginning work life in the justice system Angela quickly realised that her passion lay with health and studied to become an Aboriginal Health Worker at Redfern Aboriginal Medical Service, this set Angela on a path to Midwifery a few years later.  Completing a Bachelor of Midwifery at UTS and then working as a Midwife at Gold Coast University Hospital before returning to Redfern.

Angela is currently the Registered Midwife at the Aboriginal Medical Service Redfern, and is proud to be employed at the first AMS in the country and continues to support women and their families. Angela is passionate about providing culturally safe Midwifery care and Decolonising the current Health System.

Working at CATSINaM is a great honour, to be able to support our Nurses and Midwives across the country, and advocate for Cultural Safety through all aspects of the health system.
