Maternal and Child Health
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 (MCH) 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 from 9am to 1pm on weekdays to make an appointment.

Visiting a MCH centre
We have 12 MCH centres. You will be zoned to the centre closest to your home.
Our MCH nurses are here to help local families with parenting, child health and development, mothers’ health and family well-being.
Other services for families with children
Become a member of a toy library or join a playgroup: both are great local services for families.
