Maternal and Child Health

Do you have a child who is 18 months old? We’d be delighted if you would participate in the Toddler Development Instrument (TDI) survey. The TDI is a Victorian-based initiative to identify community strengths and improvement areas to ensure all children and their families have supports to realise the best possible start in life.

Learn more about the survey in this parent information letter, and start your TDI survey here!

Maternal and Child Health is a free primary health service available to all families with children aged from birth to school age.

Our service provides information and support to new parents and babies and child health and development checks.  We are staffed by an Enhanced Maternal and Child and Health Worker with a background in Early Childhood Education and Maternal and Child Health Nurses who are registered general nurses with qualifications in midwifery and maternal and child health.

Maternal and Child Health Centres

Maternal and Child Health Centres are ‘well baby’ clinics.  Please do not go to the Centre if your child is sick as other infants and children may be exposed.

The service operates throughout the municipality with clinics at the following centres:
