an end and a beginning...
At The Birth Center, we provide continued care for both mother and baby with a home visit just two days after the birth. The Registered Nurse who attended your labor and birth will assess you, your baby, and your breastfeeding relationship in your home environment.
A Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) is available by phone 24/7 for important questions or concerns that may arise after the birth.
Two final office visits with the CNM will be scheduled three and six weeks after your birth. During your three-week visit, another baby exam will be done and your breastfeeding experience will be discussed. Any questions you may have will be answered during this appointment.
During your six-week visit, your mental and physical recovery from the hormonal shifts of birth and early postpartum will be discussed, contraception plans, and next OB/GYN appointment reviewed. Any additional questions you may have will be answered.
