Pēpi Ora - Well Child Service

Service Overview

Pēpi Ora is a Free Well Child service that is available to all New Zealand families/whānau for children from birth to 5 years.

Our Registered Nurses will visit and talk to you about how your pēpi is growing and developing. Each visit will include a physical assessment of baby, helpful hints and tips, monitoring of pēpi development, advice on breast feeding, nutrition, sleep, and parenting. Our kaimahi also offer health promotion and education.

Well Child checks can be done at your home, kohanga reo, clinic or at a venue that is convenient for you.

We can do referrals to other services/organisations and can work with whānau who are being supported by Family Start.
