Postnatal Care (After Birth)
Ongoing Care for You and Your Baby
Your midwife will transfer the care of your baby to a Well Child / Tamariki Ora Service before your baby is 6 weeks old. Well Child / Tamariki Ora Health providers work with families to provide support, advice and care for all children under 5 years old. The most common Well Child / Tamariki Ora provider is Plunket but there are others in your region, ask your midwife for information about this service.
All babies born in New Zealand are registered with the National Immunisation Register. To find out more about the NIR click here.
It is important that you register with a local GP. If you do not have a GP or a GP for your baby, it is important to do this when you are pregnant.
