Postnatal Care

Following the birth of your baby, either in hospital or at home, I offer postnatal midwifery care in your own home, at times to suit you. This can be as;

An entire package for all your postnatal care

  • The first visit would be on the day following your discharge from hospital, or if you have a home birth, the day following the birth of your baby
  • A home visit for the first three days
  • A home visit on Day 5 after the birth, when the national newborn blood spot takes place, which screens your baby for 9 rare, but important, conditions. Your baby is also weighed on day 5 to help check that feeding is going well
  • Further visits to suit your needs, up to a maximum of 8 in total over the 28 days following the birth of your baby. Usually the visits occur up to day 10-14 after the birth. Your baby will be weighed again at around day 10 to check that he/she is resuming their birth weight
  • Telephone contact between 9am and 9pm for advice and support
  • Breastfeeding support throughout the period of care
  • A postnatal check of mum and baby will be performed at each visit
  • Referral to the GP or hospital will occur if there are any concerns with mum or baby
  • Good hand hygiene is key in terms of infection prevention and I will need appropriate facilities for this during visits. Whilst coronavirus is a risk I will be wearing a disposable apron, gloves and mask for all home visits
  • Written records will be maintained and left in your possession
  • The cost for this service is £300, payable prior to the first visit. Please contact me via email at if you have any queries regarding the above or if you wish to book this service
