Postnatal care of mum & baby - from birth and beyond
Perinatal mental health
Assessment and management of any mental health concerns before, during and after pregnancy. Providing mental health care to women who feel they may need some extra support before and after their baby is born.
Mum & baby postnatal checkup
Waiting until the "6-week check" is usually too long for many mums and babies. This is an opportunity to assess you and your baby's health and recovery, address any feeding concerns early on, and also manage any other physical or emotional health concerns. Make sure you book as soon as possible if you have any concerns. I often tell my mums and bubs to see me within a few days of discharge from hospital!
