Book a Maternal and Child Health appointment

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.


At your appointment our Maternal and child health nurses will work with your family to help you care for your child until they are ready to start school.
