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.
