With You In Every Step
The postpartum period refers to the first six weeks after childbirth. This is a joyous time, but it’s also a period of adjustment and healing for mothers. During these weeks, you’ll bond with your baby and you’ll have a post-delivery checkup.
Your postpartum care will include a home visit at 24-48 hours to assess your bleeding, vital signs and well-being. Your baby will be assessed for breastfeeding, jaundice, elimination patterns and have a Newborn Metabolic Screen and Congenital Heart Defect Screen. Birth Certificate information will be reviewed and filed.
You will have a visit at 2 weeks postpartum to assess any emotional issues, breastfeeding, fundal height and discuss the birth.
Your six week visit will assess any issues that need addressed, future family planning, pelvic floor issues, diastasis recti assessment and a pap will be offered.
