Care after birth

Having a baby is an exciting and fulfilling part of life but it can be daunting for some women. The following information aims to ease some of your concerns, assist you in coping with the changes in your body and prepare you for your new role as a parent. It is, however, only a guide as each woman and their family may require different information and care depending on their circumstances. If you have any questions, please ask your midwife or doctor.

If you think that something may be wrong at anytime, trust your own judgement and get in touch with your doctor or midwife straight away.
