We’ve made some changes to the way we deliver Women, Youth and Children health services to help slow the spread of COVID-19. You can find out more about what's changed on the Temporary changes page.
Our physiotherapy services provide assessment, information, exercise advice, early intervention and prevention for women, youth and children with the following concerns:
- women from 3 to 12 months after birth with mastitis
- pregnancy related musculoskeletal and continence issues
- babies under 12 months with head and neck posture concerns, positional foot problems and physical development issues
You can access this service through the CHI line on 02 5124 9977 between 8am and 5pm weekdays.
Please bring any relevant medical investigations or results to your appointment. Please bring your baby’s Blue Book if the appointment is for them.
Our services are available at 3 clinics across Canberra, including:
