Event description

Description

This year is the centenary year of Victoria’s first maternal and child health centre opening in Richmond. Dr Belinda Robson, author of Yarra Council’s ‘The Best Possible Foundations: Yarra’s Maternal and Child Health Centres 1917-2017’ will discuss the historical antecedents of maternal and child health centres in Yarra. How have the changing ideas of women, mothers and infant care been reflected in the types of services Councils have offered new mothers?

Bookings essential. You do not need to bring a ticket with you to this event.
