Free support and advice for new parents on the Peninsula

6 June 2019

Mornington Peninsula Shire is offering free Parenting Information Sessions for new and expectant parents on the Peninsula.

If you are a soon-to-be parent or the parent of a new born or young child aged up to three years old, come along to a free information session and receive expert advice from our Child and Family Health Team.

It’s normal to feel overwhelmed or have a lot of questions as a new parent and our friendly, experienced team is here to help.

Sessions will be held in Mornington and Rosebud throughout the year from 9.30-10.30 am or 2-3pm, confirmed at the time of booking.

Information sessions provide an opportunity to gain a better understanding of some of the aspects of parenting, raising children and to meet other parents who may be experiencing similar things to you.

Sessions are free but it’s essential you make a booking to attend.

For more information or to make a booking, contact 5950 1099.
