Child and family health

We offer services in Pascoe Vale specifically designed to cater for every stage of a family, from the time you decide you’d like to start a family, during and post-pregnancy to child healthcare.

Family planning

We provide expert and confidential quality health services and support to ensure you’re well informed and able to manage your sexual and reproductive health. From contraception to fertility and pregnancy advice, our GPs can assist with all your family planning needs.

For example, we can help with:

  • Mirena – an intrauterine device (IUD), which is placed inside the uterus (womb) to prevent pregnancy
  • Implanon NXT – an implant inserted under the skin on the inside of the arm which is an effective and convenient long-term contraception option.

Pre-conception health check

Thinking of starting a family? This health screening is designed for women to ascertain their readiness to conceive and identify any potential health risk issues.

Antenatal shared care

Antenatal shared care is a popular choice for healthy women with a normal pregnancy. It will allow most of your pregnancy care to be managed by one of our accredited antenatal care GPs.

We’re associated with the following hospitals:

  • The Womens (Royal Womens Hospital)
  • Mercy Hospital for Women
  • Northern Hospital
  • Sunshine Hospital

For more information speak to your GP or contact the shared care coordinator at the above hospitals.

Postnatal care

We offer mother-centric postnatal care services to both the mother and newborn during the first six weeks after delivery of the child. This may include:

  • Routine clinical examination and observation of mother and baby
  • Routine baby screening to detect potential disorders
  • Support for infant feeding
  • Ongoing provision of information and support.

Baby and child health checks

These checks allow for babies and young children to be routinely evaluated by our GPs to monitor their health, growth and development.

Paediatrics

We have in-house consulting paediatricians at our Pascoe Vale clinic.

A paediatrician is a medical doctor with special training and skills in the diseases and illnesses that affect babies and children, and also in how babies, children and teenagers grow and develop.

Your child might see a paediatrician if your GP wants a specialist opinion about your child’s health and development, or thinks your child needs specialised care and treatment.
