When can I join GenV?

If you are having a baby between January 2021 and December 2022 in Victoria, you are invited to take part in GenV.

Before that, some hospitals will be asking parents to take part earlier to help us test our processes and provide the best experience for all families.

When is GenV happening?

GenV will be launched throughout Victoria in stages.

The new Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s Hospital is our first GenV hospital. If you are having a baby at this hospital from April 2020 to December 2020, you will be among the first families invited to take part in GenV.

Four other hospitals across Victoria will join GenV from September 2020 to December 2020.

From January 2021, every expecting parent in Victoria is invited to join.

Unfortunately, if you are not having a baby at one of our first five hospitals, you will be unable to take part in GenV until everyone is invited in January 2021.

If you are having a baby at a participating hospital, a GenV team member will visit you shortly after your child is born, which is where you will be given the opportunity to join GenV. Learn more about how you can participate.
