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, the Early Learning team and MDAS Family Support Services.

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







MDAS offers home visits for the first five 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.

We would love to speak with you about your baby or your child’s health and development. 

Our program can offer support and information on:

  • Feeding and nutrition…especially breastfeeding
  • Safe sleeping and settling
  • Child health and development
  • Childhood illnesses prevention
  • Accident and injury prevention
  • Oral health
  • Play and Learning. We offer great ideas for interaction with your child that will help with his or her learning and development e.g. reading, song and dance and playgroups
  • Maternal and paternal health and well being
  • Referrals to other health professionals or organisation as needed.
