Child and family health

After discharge from the hospital or midwifery in the home, your ongoing care as new parents is continued through the Child and Family Health service (C&FHS).

Child and Family Health services work in partnership with families to provide parenting support and education, whilst also performing key health assessments for yourself and baby, as well as immunisations.

A referral to your local CAFs should have occurred upon discharge, however if this didn’t occur don’t worry – you can also self-refer.
