New parents

Following the birth of your baby, an MCH nurse will contact you and arrange a time to visit you and your baby at home.

After your home visit, regular follow-up appointments will be made for you to visit one of Council's MCH centres (usually the centre closest to where you live).

New to Mitchell Shire

If you are new to Mitchell Shire and have children between birth and 4 years, please contact us to make an appointment.


Interpreters are available by phone and on-site.
