Postnatal Care (After Birth)

Home Visits From a Midwife (From Birth to 4 - 6 Weeks)

Home visits provide an opportunity for you to discuss any concerns you have about your health or the health of your baby. Your midwife will assist you with breastfeeding and will monitor your baby's growth and development. Your midwife will visit you the day after you get home. You will then receive between 5 and 10 visits until your baby is around 4-6 weeks old. It is important to let your midwife know where you are, if you are planning to stay at another address after the birth.

Once discharged from hospital your midwife that you met antenatally, will visit you at home 5-6 times (visits are tailored to meet your needs). If your midwife is on annual leave or sick, then one of her team colleagues will visit you.     

Your midwife will liaise with you to determine a mutually convenient time to visit you and your baby. It is important that you ensure your midwife has the correct address of where you will be with your baby and your telephone details.
