Postnatal care extends for between 6-8 weeks after the birth of your baby. During this period, routine checks are carried out by the health visitor and you and your baby’s recovery is monitored.
During your postnatal care you can find out about feeding, potty training, illnesses, safety and more. You will be able to ask your health visitor questions and request advice.
You can also book a GP appointment for a postnatal check about 6 weeks after the birth. This would cover areas such as feeding, healing, contraception and other queries you may have about your recovery.
