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.

If you have had diabetes before your pregnancy the diabetes midwife will continue to contact you to help you with managing your diabetes after your baby is born and to arrange an appointment with the diabetes specialist.
