Maternal and Child Health

We are running our services over the phone for a 30 minute consultation. No new bookings will be taken for key age and stage consultation from 4 months to 3.5 years (unless we contact you).

If a face-to-face consultation is needed, it will be strictly 15 minutes or less. No open sessions are operating at present. All play and parent groups are cancelled until further notice.

We provide a free service for all families with children from birth to school age.

We can help you understand if your child is healthy and their development is on track, check your health, give you breastfeeding tips, connect you with other new parents, listen and refer you to other services.

Your Maternal and Child Health Nurse is a friendly face and a health and wellbeing expert. If you are new to the area and have children between birth and 4 years, we would like to hear from you. Please contact us on 9457 9990 to make an appointment
