Our team remains with you for about 3 hours following the delivery, making sure that you and baby are adjusting well and that you have all the information on what’s normal and would prompt a phone call to the midwife. Care for your precious newborn after birth: thorough newborn examination, state required newborn screening, initial well baby care, and breastfeeding support.
Postpartum visits are scheduled between 24-48 hours after the birth, an optional 5-7-day visit, a 2 week and 6-week visits. During this period, I will be available for any questions or concerns you may have. Certified Nurse Midwives can care for newborns up to 28 days of age, with this being said, it is encouraged you arrange a primary care provider for your baby as soon as possible.
