Health and Wellbeing


The Child and Family Health Service (CaFHS) is a free service for all families with children from birth to five years old, living in South Australia.

CaFHS runs a ‘Getting to Know Your Baby’ program.

CaFHS also provides health checks for children. Health checks are routinely done at 6 – 9 months old, at 18 – 24 months old and again at preschool, but can be done anytime.

If you have any concerns about your child’s growth or development, or you’d like to request a health check, please call 1300 733 606 to book a clinic appointment. Please request Ardtornish Children’s Centre when booking.


The Northern Adelaide Midwifery Group Practice visits our site to provide pregnancy check-ups.
