Pregnancy, Birth and Baby

Pregnancy, Birth and Baby is a national Australian Government service providing support and information for expecting parents and parents of children aged up to 5 years.

You or your partner may be pregnant and feeling apprehensive about the upcoming labour and birth or have questions about how to care for your new baby. This is when the Pregnancy, Birth and Baby service can help. You may wish to browse the website for information or call the free* helpline and speak with a registered maternal child health nurse or counsellor.

Pregnancy, Birth and Baby supports parents on the journey from pregnancy, to baby and pre-school, offering guidance and reassurance about behavioural and development concerns such as tantrums, walking, talking or reading for children up to 5 years of age.
