Postnatal care starts when your baby is born. While you are still in the hospital your midwife continues to support you with feeding and baby care.
Within 12-24 hours of your discharge from the hospital, Your midwife visits you at home to see how you are adjusting to life with your new baby.
We offer personalized postnatal packages to give you peace of mind and support you through the early days with your baby. Our postnatal package (check-ups in the days following your baby’s birth) depends on your needs and request. It can range from 3 essential visits (Day 1, Day 5 and Day 10) to 30 visits depending on you and your baby's well being.
Our postnatal care package includes :
A full examination of the baby
Newborn blood test (heel prick) for baby
Physical examination and emotional support for you
Around day 5, your private midwife will check that you are all still doing well and that feeding is well established. She will also carry out the heel prick test for your baby.
Around day 10, your private midwife will make sure that you and your baby are happy, that your baby is gaining weight and you are recovering well from the delivery.
Single postnatal appointment
We offer one-off appointments where your private midwife checks you and your baby’s well-being, do all necessary clinical checks and answer all your questions. One-off appointments usually last 1 hour and are held in your own home or preferred place of your choice.
