Key ages and stages—Maternal & Child Health Framework

Council’s free Maternal and Child Health service provides 10 health and developmental checks for your child from birth to kindergarten age.

Our highly qualified and experienced Maternal & Child Health nurses will help you identify ways to support your child’s health, growth and development.

Different topics are discussed and assessments undertaken at each visit to monitor your child’s growth and development.

Share your parenting experiences with a qualified professional who understands the journey every parent takes, and the ups and downs of raising young children.

Find out about other support services for you and your child and how you can make connections with other parents in your community.

Appointments can be made by calling our booking line on (03) 5422 0281 from 9am–4pm, Monday to Friday.

For assistance outside of these times, call the 24-hour Maternal & Child Health Line 13 22 29
