Postnatal Visits

Postnatal Visits - baby

Pregnancy Birth and Beyond offers postnatal care to mothers and babies, either in the comfort of their home or at the well-appointed PBB Health Centre. This service is ideal for women who leave hospital within a few days of their baby's birth, or for women who are experiencing difficulties.

Receiving one-to-one support from a single experienced midwife offers a variety of benefits. These include the opportunity to develop a trusting and supportive relationship, consistency of advice, and more efficient detection of issues.

Postnatal visits aim to ensure the health and wellbeing of both mother and baby after birth. You can book a one off postnatal visit or a package of care.

Provided for up to six weeks, postnatal care package incorporates approximately six postnatal visits, including a comprehensive six week postnatal check. At each visit your midwife will conduct a well-baby check as well as discussing with you any issues or problems you or your baby may be experiencing. In addition your midwife will provide information on infant feeding, postnatal exercises, parenting and family adjustments, family planning and community resources.
