Maternal and Child Health (MCH)

Our highest priority is the safety of families and children in our community.

Our MCH centres continue to operate and there are some changes, these include:

  • Offering most of our appointments via phone
  • Face to face appointments are limited to families with babies eight weeks or younger or those that are deemed necessary by the nurse
  • Limiting the number of people that can attend a MCH centre at any one time.

If you or a family member have been unwell or have travelled outside of Australia in the last 14 days please cancel your appointment by calling 9840 9188.

For more information, please call 9840 9188, 9.00am to 4.00pm, Monday to Friday.

If your child is unwell, call your local GP or 000 (triple zero) if a life threatening emergency. If you need to speak to a nurse outside our hours, please call the free, 24 hour Maternal and Child Health Line on 13 22 29.

We support families with children aged from birth to school age.

Our specialist staff will guide you through your early parenting years to provide free support for your child’s development, growth, nutrition and general wellbeing.
