Online Breastfeeding Support for Families

The Maternal and Child Health Service is no longer providing face to face breastfeeding support due to COVID-19.

To continue supporting families we have replaced the face to face service with a phone support line.

If you need support with breastfeeding you can call our team on 9304 5690 and talk to a Maternal and Child Health nurse who can support you over the phone. The phone support line will operate 5 days a week from 9am to 4pm.

For general advice from a Maternal and Child Health nurse you can contact our team on 9240 1111 and select option 2.
