Postpartum visits
What sort of postpartum support does your midwife offer? Are all visits done in your home? Does she do the primary care for the baby as well?

Re: Postpartum visits
She comes the day after birth 3 days, 1 week, and then a 6 week check up.

Re: Postpartum visits
she comes a couple times in the first week, again at 2 weeks and then the 6 week is at her office/home. But she's available by phone also and can come to my house if I need..

Re: Postpartum visits
She comes withing 48 hours after birth then again around 3 weeks and the final post pardom visit at 6 weeks is at her office. She will do basic newborn check-ups during that time. She recommends a visit with the peditrician around 4 weeks PP, unless there is any issues with the baby.

Re: Postpartum visits
She does 2 at home and then 2 at her house. You can use her for well women visits, but I don't because she is over an hour away.

Re: Postpartum visits
My midwives come on day 1, day 5, day 7 and day 14 to the house. After that we go to the office at week 4 and week 6. They are available by phone/text/email anytime in between.

Re: Postpartum visits
Mine comes 24 hours after birth and then on occasion(can't remember the exact schedule) for 6 weeks.

Re: Postpartum visits
I know I have a check up at 1, 2, 4, and 6 weeks....I think if we are close enough she comes the day after to check and if not she calls and checks up on us.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 10:10 PM.
