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!
