Maternal and Child Health
Council provides Maternal and Child Health services at eight centres throughout the Colac Otway Shire. After the birth of your baby our team is notified and you will be contacted soon after to arrange a home visit before your baby is two weeks of age.
All our services are free and aim to support families and their child's health and development from birth until four years of age, and are led by registered nurses qualified in midwifery and maternal and child health.
You can make an appointment to visit a Maternal and Child Health nurse by calling Council on (03) 5232 9570.
For advice and support outside of business hours, a statewide Maternal and Child Health Line operates 24 hours a day. The number to call is 132229.
