What will we cover

Our programme starts with a visit from one of our midwives usually the day after the mother and baby are discharged from the hospital. The visits normally continue regularly for a period of around 3 weeks and are planned between you and your midwife. It enables families to properly adjust to their new situation, ensures that breastfeeding is well established and that parents' emotional well-being is secured.

Each visit is tailored according to the individual family's needs, with the emphasis being to focus on the most urgent issues present. In the early days this is quite often breastfeeding (or bottle-feeding); therefore, we will focus on the prevention of sore breasts and mastitis, show you different feeding positions, discuss how often and how long you need to feed your baby and how to know if your infant is getting enough milk. 

As other issues then follow, you will be given the required support and advice to ensure that you are able to both fulfill and enjoy your role as a new parent. This typically includes:

  • Performing a complete physical check on the baby    
  • Assistance in the care and maintenance of the belly button  
  • A demonstration of the basics of baby massage    
  • Weighing the baby    
  • Checking that the uterus is contracting well    
  • Checking that the perineum/wound is healing well    
  • Giving support through the 'baby blues'    
  • Discussing different aspects of parenting and baby care.
