Enhanced Maternal and Child Health Service

Maternal and child health

The Enhanced Maternal and Child Health (EMCH) Service offers extra support for families in addition to the 10 key age and stage visits.

Parents are able to identify what specific help they need and work with the Maternal Child Health team to access care and services.

EMCH focuses on improving outcomes for infants, children, and their parents. It provides more help for parents who are experiencing a period of increased need, and who could benefit from additional support.

We strive to offer a service that respects all cultures and includes everyone. Our goal is to foster cultural connections within the community.

We provide these services free of charge.

To access EMCH service please call 03 5032 0300 or talk to your Maternal Child Health Nurse at your next visit.
