After the birth of your baby, you will typically remain in the birth center for up to 4 hours. In the days and weeks to follow, our care will focus on assessing your health and well-being, supporting the breastfeeding relationship and guiding you through the transition to motherhood. Postpartum care is typically provided on the following schedule, and can be adjusted as appropriate. All visits prior to two weeks occur in your home.
- 1st visit: 24-48 hours
- 2nd visit: 3-5 days (pku testing, breastfeeding support) or 7-10 days
- 3rd visit: 2 weeks
- 4th visit: 6 weeks (family planning)
