24 July 2020

The current My Health and Development Record, commonly known as the ‘Blue Book’, has been reviewed with proposed changes highlighted in the table attached .

The My Heath and Development Record, or ‘Blue Book’, is given to women when they birth their babies, in order for there to be a hand-held record of the baby’s growth and development, vaccinations, etc.

Changes have been recommended by a variety of organisations and individuals with expertise in the relevant areas.

The ANMF (SA Branch) is seeking comments from members about the proposed changes, and if there are any other areas of concern or suggestions for change.

Please send any comments to [email protected] (put ‘Blue book’ in the subject field) or call the Duty Officer on 83341900, by close of business, 7 August 2020.
