Maternal and Child Health nurses go digital with online info sessions

Nurse Online MCH

Northern Grampians Shire Council’s Maternal and Child Health (MCH) team is offering free online information sessions for local families.

The sessions for parents of children from birth to school-age, are conducted by a MCH Nurse and will feature a range of topics including sleeping and settling, diet, first aid, behaviour, and self care for parents.

With the constraints placed on councils during the COVID-19 Pandemic, our MCH team has come up with this creative way of staying in touch with families in our community.

The sessions are completely free of charge and will run on Thursdays from 11am to 12noon beginning 22 October and will continue until the end of the calendar year.

The final session for 2020 will be Thursday 10 December and it is hoped that in 2021 the sessions will continue but will be able to be conducted face to face.

Northern Grampians Shire Council CEO, Liana Thompson, said the information sessions are a valuable part of the services council offers to the community.

“Our dedicated MCH team provides an exceptional service to the newest members of our shire and these online sessions are a great way for new families to gain important knowledge and new parenting skills,” she said.
