Postpartum Care

The initial postpartum visit will be done at 24-48 hours after birth and subsequent visits will be scheduled for 3rd-4th day, 7th-10th day, 2-3 weeks, and 6-8 weeks postpartum. The postpartum period extends through the first 6 weeks of a newborns life. We are qualified to provide newborn care for up to 2 weeks postpartum. The frequency and length between checks will depend on the status of both mother and baby.

  • Birth certificate
  • Newborn Screening
  • Assessment of both mother and baby
  • Continued breastfeeding assistance and counseling
  • 24 hour access to your midwife
