Postnatal Care

Your baby is now here, a new page starts for your family. I will visit you every day for first 4-5 days, then every couple of days till 10 days when I would liaise with the Health Visitor. I would also continue to visit for 4 weeks. Visits will become less frequent as your confidence grows.

I perform health and screening checks for you and your baby. I will check that you are recovering from the labour and birth and that your baby is growing and thriving. I have time to provide extensive breastfeeding support if you should need it. I also can help to support your family as you settle into your new life.

Midwife Postnatal-only Package – As with antenatal services, even if you have chosen to have your birth with the NHS, I can provide additional postnatal visits and breastfeeding support. It is a sad fact that since I qualified as a midwife in 1988, there has been a vast reduction in the number and length of visits which community midwives are able to provide in many parts of the country. My visits can be tailored to your needs and can be scheduled. I am only a call or text away.
