New Parent Meet and Greet Sessions (aka Mother’s Group)
Every Tuesday (1pm-2:30pm) at Telopea and Wednesday (10:30am to 12pm) at Merrylands, during school term, there is a Meet and Greet for new families with children aged from birth to 12 weeks old. It is an information sharing session facilitated by a Community Nurse.
The sessions are parent centred, and provide a support network, as well as professional advice, which is offered in an open and inclusive environment. The program is offered as a drop in service, with no appointment required. It provides a great opportunity to get to know other parents, avoid isolation, and find out about child health care.
