Maternal & Child Health

Our Maternal and Child Health (MCH) service provides free health and developmental checks for children aged 0-4 years.

We also offer information and advice to new parents on a range of maternal and child health topics.

See our MCH service promise.

 

How it works
  • Once your baby is born, the hospital notifies our Maternal and Child Health team.

 

  • We then contact you to organise a visit within the first few days of arriving home.

 

  • One of our nurses visits you at home to check your baby’s health and progress. They’ll also link you to the MCH centre of your choice.

 

  • At each subsequent visit to a MCH centre, a nurse will review your child’s progress and discuss any concerns you have about your baby or parenting issues.
