After the birth of your baby you have 24 hour access to the midwife to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Please do not hesitate to call the midwife if you are concerned about yourself or your baby.
A member of your birth team will come to your home to do an assessment of both you and your baby between 24-36 hours after birth. You will have the opportunity to have the baby's newborn metabolic screen drawn at this visit.
If you are experiencing any breastfeeding difficulties, we are able to assist you at this time, or can refer you to our in office lactation consultant. You will have an in office visit between 3-5 days postpartum, and then every two weeks until your 6 week visit. Should you request it, well woman care and birth control options can be provided by our nurse-midwife.
