The child health clinic

phone from 12.00 pm to 1.00 pm 09 87891343

The services of the child health clinic are available to all families from the time the child is two weeks old until the child begins school.

In addition to health checks and vaccinations, the clinic’s services focus on helping the family find its own resources and providing support for family life.

During the child’s first year of life, there are about 10 visits to the child health clinic for appointments with the clinic’s nurse or doctor. This is followed by about one appointment a year until the child starts school.

The nurse at the maternity clinic refers a family with a newborn child to a nurse at the child health clinic. If you have children under school age, you can contact the child health clinic yourself.

The purpose of the clinics and the group activities in connection with them is to support and promote the mental and physical well-being of new parents, so that they can feel happy about the baby they are expecting and so that the birth will be a safe and positive experience. It is also important to help couples maintain a healthy relationship, so that children can grow and develop in a supportive family environment.

Clinic appointments monitor the health and well-being of the mother, the unborn child and the entire family throughout pregnancy and immediately after childbirth, until the mother has had her post-natal health check. Where necessary, the clinic will refer the mother/family to special health services.

It is recommended that you contact the maternity clinic when your menstrual periods have stopped and a pregnancy test gives a positive result.
