Six weeks after the birth you can visit us for a postnatal check. We can then discuss with you how you experienced our care during your pregnancy, childbirth and the maternity period. If there have been problems during pregnancy, childbirth or maternity period, we will discuss with you how this affects a next pregnancy. If you have any further questions, please ask. We also would like to know how you and your family are coping with the baby in general.
We imagine it is nice to have the postnatal check performed by the same midwife who attended the birth. We suggest you make the appointment when your baby is a couple of weeks old. The assistant can then make an appointment for you. The postnatal check takes approximately 15 minutes, but if you believe you will need more time, please ask for a double appointment. The postnatal check is not compulsory.
