"Parents Group in Wagin"

About: Southern Wheatbelt Primary Health Service

(as a service user),

I believe the local child Health Nurse Holly is amazing! It's been a long time since the small town of Wagin had a parents group run- normally new parents are required travel 35 minutes or more to the next town to attend these groups once a week. The specialist people she got each week (Ngala, OT, Dietician) were, in my opinion, all so knowledgeable and helpful. And what I really loved was that in a small town you think you know everyone- but I met lots of new mums and bubs and made some new friends. And I loved the supportive environment. Holly also opened the group up to expecting mums which I feel was brilliant for preparedness and meeting people that can support me along the way. This is my first child and it never felt "real"- but now I've met this fantastic group of people in my local town and learnt stuff along the way. It's also so good getting to know Holly as the local CHN better!

Dear SodahPop4,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience on Care Opinion.

I am very happy to hear about your positive experience with our child health nurse, Holly, and the parenting group she is running in Wagin.

I agree it is important to offer child health and child development services to our rural families.

We are very fortunate to have Holly as part of our team and I have shared your feedback with Holly, which made her day.

Thank you again for sharing your story and I wish you and your family all the best.

Regina Michel-Huessy
