We have payments and services to help when you have a baby. Use this guide to find out what you need to do to access them.
In this section
Before the birth of your baby
Check if you can get payments, register for self-service and think about child care. You can submit your pre-birth claim up to 3 months before your baby is due.
When your baby arrives
Use your Parent Pack to finalise your pre-birth claim or submit your a new claim. You can also enrol your baby in Medicare and register their birth.
As your baby grows
As your baby grows, keep their immunisations up to date. Discuss returning to work with your employer. Tell us if you’re returning to work.
