Being a parents can be an exciting and rewarding time for families. Parents can experience a wide range of emotions from happiness and excitement to stress and worry. We have a nurse available to take calls at the Hornsby, Pennant Hills and St Ives Child and Family Health Centres 5 days a week.
Parents call our centres to discuss :
- Breast feeding
- Infant, child and Family Nutrition
- Sleep and settling
- Immunisation information
- Parenting and the care of your child
- Post natal issues including depression and anxiety
- Domestic Violence
- Family well being
- and any other issue you may be concerned about
If needed, following a telephone consultation of up to 30 minutes, an appointment can be made at the Child and Family Health Centre to discuss your concerns with one of the nurses and develop a care plan to suit you and your families needs. Review of the care plan via further appointments or telephone support is offered.
If the number diverts to Message Bank, please leave a message with your name, number and your babies date of birth and we will get back to you. Often the nurses are on another call or running one of the parenting groups but your call will be returned.
