Having a new baby in the family can be a wonderful experience but adjusting to parenthood brings many challenges and responsibilities.

The Child & Family Health Service is a valuable resource for parents and works in partnership with families to provide support, information and health advice.

SESLHD Child & Family Health Nursing Service is available to all families and carers with children 0-5 years of age who live in the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District 


We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land and waterways on which we work, live and travel through.
We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and to Elders past and present.
