New Parents Groups

Our Moira Shire Maternal and Child Health Nurses at Cobram, Numurkah and Yarrawonga deliver an eight week program for first time parents offering information on health, wellbeing and family matters.

These are also a great opportunity to make friendships with local families.

Parents from the smaller centres are also invited to attend these groups and partners are always welcome. Please speak to your Maternal and Child Health Nurse to organise your invitation.

These are some of topics that are covered and some links to extra resources:
