Maternal and Child Health

We are offering telephone consultations for all ages. In addition, a short face-to-face consultation for babies 2 weeks, 4 weeks and 8 weeks of age.
If a face-to-face consultation is needed, it will be short. No open sessions are operating at present. Parent groups are continuing in an online-only format.
Please wear a face mask when you attend a centre consultation - in line with the requirements of the Victorian Government. Children under 12 are not required to wear covering, but parents and guardians are.

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
