Maternal and child health

Last updated Tuesday 8 July

We've had to make some changes to our Maternal and Child Health service to keep your family safe and healthy.

In line with Victorian Government guidelines for the service, from Thursday 9 July 2020:

  • All two-week, four-week and eight-week appointments will be at your local MCH centre for a brief 15 minute appointment, followed by a phone consultation.
  • Home visits will be replaced by a phone appointment. We will contact you via phone or SMS to confirm your appointment and location.
  • Our immunisation service will be running as normal, with extra precautions in place. Some locations have changed – please download our interim immunisation schedule (154KB, PDF) for details.

To help us with physical distancing, we ask that only one caregiver attends your appointment wherever possible. Please do not bring your other children to the MCH centre.

At this stage, all other key age and stage appointments will be via phone, and first time parent groups will be offered online.

Get in touch with us on 03 9205 5599 for more information.
