Our Ambassadors

WIRF Ambassadors Program

The Women and Infants Research Foundation (WIRF) Ambassadors Program aims to raise the awareness of the importance of preterm birth research and other critical areas of women’s and infants’ health.

Our ambassadors will share their personal stories through a variety of media and events to encourage people who identify with the Ambassadors’ stories to support WIRF research. The Ambassador Program includes people with a preterm birth experience, high-profile Ambassadors, and health professionals.

High profile Ambassadors

People with a high media profile who have a preterm birth experience will play a crucial role in assisting WIRF to raise awareness of preterm birth both nationally and internationally. The Ambassadors Program hopes to engage high profile identities which are united by their commitment to raising awareness and financial support for preterm birth research.

Why participate in the Ambassador Program?

Sharing personal stories is a powerful way to raise community awareness of WIRF, the importance of preterm birth research and our substantial work already undertaken in this area.

Opportunities proposed as part of the Ambassadors Program are tailored to generate substantial positive media coverage and social media engagement for both our Ambassador and the Foundation. Our Ambassadors will also be recognised as a Major Supporter of the Foundation.

What is required of me as part of the program?

We understand that our Ambassadors are busy people that are juggling many competing engagements, and as such, our Ambassador opportunities are not designed to be onerous or unrealistic.

We strive to identify the different strengths and preferences of our Ambassadors and marry those with the different opportunities available during the year. Ambassador opportunities are not limited to preterm birth. WIRF undertakes considerable research into gynaecological cancer and other critical areas of women’s, infants’ and reproductive health.

Our Ambassadors can contribute to the organisation in many different ways. These included:

  • Being the guest speaker at a WIRF event
  • Being a spokesperson for news stories and assisting with media exposure
  • Providing approved images and testimonials/messages for a variety of media
  • Appearing in online platforms and public forums
  • Co-hosting fundraising events.

How can I become an Ambassador?

If you would like to register your interest for the WIRF Ambassadors Program please contact Richie Hodgson on (08) 6458 1387 or 0408 128 099 or via email at richie@wirf.com.au


Personal and powerful stories of preterm birth, as told first hand by mothers of preemie babies, are crucial to raising awareness for our research into preterm birth prevention.

These brave ladies continue to be the very best ambassadors for the work we do.
