Postpartum Care

Postpartum Care

Supporting You Beyond the Birth

We continue to be on call for you if you have any questions or concerns during the postpartum period.  One of the midwife team will visit you at one day, then at three days, one week, and two weeks at your home.  The four and six week visits take place at our office. If you need extra visits for more support with breastfeeding or in your transition to parenthood we are happy to be there. Postpartum visits include checking vital signs of mama and baby, breastfeeding support, weighing of the baby, asking about your bleeding, and answering any questions you may have. We also fill out a birth certificate and make keepsake footprints.

The last visit is always bittersweet as we say goodbye to our time of seeing you so frequently. We are honored to have been present during this miraculous time.

Please also join us for the Rosehip Annual Picnic and Holiday Party events, details will be posted on our Facebook page.
