COVID-19 👩⚕️👶 update: Maternal and Child Health services
Throughout the State of Emergency, our Maternal and Child Health services have been supporting Victorian parents via telehealth and other virtual services to ensure they’re getting the help and advice they need.
Because so many Victorians are doing the right thing, I’m pleased we’re now able to start resuming more face to face appointments for some of our smallest Victorians and their parents.
From today, face to face appointments will be offered to all families with infants 0-8 weeks, Aboriginal infants and children with additional needs.
Face to face group sessions will also resume with groups limited to a maximum of 20 people in total (including adults, infants and children) to ensure that services can meet physical distancing requirements.
All going well, our Universal MCH Program will be back fully operating from 1 July.
