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 call our assistant and make the appointment when your baby is about 2 weeks old. The assistant can then make an appointment for you for 6 weeks after the birth. The postnatal check takes approximately 30 minutes. We will, if wanted, perform an internal (vaginal) exam to check the strength of your pelvic floor muscles and we will check your abdominal muscles. The postnatal check is not obligated..
