The arrival of a new baby brings joy as well as new challenges and significant changes to a family. Whitehorse Council's Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Service provides essential health and development assessment and care for all families living in Whitehorse with young children aged from birth to 4 years. When your baby is born the hospital will advise Whitehorse Council and a MCH nurse will make contact with you to arrange a time for a home visit once you arrive home.
Whitehorse City Council has six Maternal and Child Health Family Centres.
Appointments are typically Monday to Friday 8:30am-4pm. Please call the corresponding number to book or change an appointment time.
If the matter is urgent please contact your local GP or nearest hospital emergency department. For phone advice from a MCH nurse please contact the Maternal and Child Health Line on 13 22 29. This line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
