Maternity and child health psychologist

What are the services of a maternity and child health psychologist?

Maternity and child health clinic psychologists aim to support parenthood and the child’s development and to observe any potential problems with the child as early on as possible and to organise the necessary support, together with other operators.

A child may be referred to a psychologist’s appointment when it is necessary to study the child’s level of development or any possible developmental problems, or when a psychologist’s assessment of the child’s need for support is required or sending the child to a specialised healthcare examination is considered.

How can the service be applied for?
