Maternity and child health clinic psychologist

The maternity and child health clinic psychologist can support the child's development and help detect possible developmental challenges as early as possible.

With parental consent, the child can be referred to us by a child health clinic's nurse or doctor, for example. The child can be referred to us to determine their developmental level and assess the need for support measures, or if the child is being considered for an examination of specialised medical care.

For example, your maternity clinic's nurse or doctor can refer you to us if you have had previous miscarriages, suffer parental fatigue, or need short-term support in adjusting to parenthood.

You need a referral to access our service. The service is free of charge.
