Postnatal Care

Postnatal care extends for between 6-8 weeks after the birth of your baby. During this period, routine checks are carried out by the health visitor and you and your baby’s recovery is monitored.

When booking a 6 week check for your baby this should be a half hour appointment with your GP. If booking the appointment online using Patient Access, please book 3 consecutive appointments.

During your postnatal care you will find out about feeding, potty training, illnesses, safety and more. You will be able to ask your health visitor questions and request advice.
