Services

 

Early Feeding Support

 

Early feeding and drop in clinics support parents of newborns in the first four weeks after leaving hospital. Brief consultations are available at select venues throughout the great Brisbane area. For additional feeding support, the infant feeding and parent support program for new parents within the first six months is available by appointment.

Key Age Child Health Checks

 

By following a schedule of visits at key ages set out in a child’s Personal Health Record book, parents can monitor the health, wellbeing and development of their child in partnership with health professionals. These key age checks are also available through the family doctor.
