Postpartum care is one of the best reasons to choose community birth!
After the birth, your team of midwives continue to be on-call for you for any questions or concerns during the postpartum period. One of us will visit you in your home one day, three days, one week, and two weeks after your baby’s arrival, with our four and six week postpartum visits taking place in our office. If you need extra visits for more support with feeding or in your transition to parenthood we can arrange more frequent appointments.
Postpartum visits include checking vital signs for you and your baby, breastfeeding support, weighing the baby, monitoring your bleeding, and answering any other questions you may have. We also file the birth certificate, make keepsake footprints and perform any newborn procedures that you have chosen.
