Postnatal

You will receive regular, tailor-made appointments following the birth of your baby. The standard pattern of visits is frequent in the first week and the length of the appointment is variable, depending on the needs and feeding support required. The frequency of visits gradually decreases up to 28 days, when we will say good-bye.

A typical post natal schedule will include home visits lasting 60-90 mins on Day 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13,15,18,21, 25, and day 28, with more visits if you are struggling

During the postnatal period we will be on hand to guide you through all aspects of new parenting, and can deal with any concerns you may have.

We will focus initially on establishing and supporting breast feeding, monitoring baby’s progress such as weight and addressing issues such as physiological jaundice,  but later move on to cover newborn first aid, baby massage, bathing, safe co-sleeping, breast milk pumping, baby behaviour, getting out and about and anything else you feel you want to know.

We will remain on call for you, throughout this time, ensuring that you remain confident in the transition to parenting. We can do this via phone, but also will create a What’s App group for all the emerging questions which has proved to be a real support to our clients.

One off appointments can be made if your routine postnatal care does meet your requirements e.g. breastfeeding support. These are subject to availability.krista-baby
