MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH

Having a family is a big job.

Here at MDAS, experienced Maternal and Child Health Nurses, together with Aboriginal Health Workers, will help you through those early days and months with home visits and or clinic appointments.

Our Maternal and Child Health program is free, and includes help and information for families with children aged 0-5 years.

We are part of the MDAS Early Years team, working closely with the MDAS Koori Maternity Service, theEarly Learning team and MDAS Family Support Services.

We  do this  thorough health and developmental checks and Key Ages and Stages check-ups.







MDAS offers home visits for the first 5 weeks following the birth of your baby and our service has the capacity to do extra visits either at the clinic or at your home at any time you feel you need extra support.

MDAS Maternal and Child Health provides a full childhood immunisation service, and can do a  complete Aboriginal health check on your baby/child, every nine months
Either phone or call into MDAS in Mildura or Swan Hill and ask to speak with the Maternal and Child Health Nurse or Aboriginal Health Worker .
