What to expect from my Postnatal Consultation?

Congratulations on your new arrival! Now that baby is here, we can provide a postnatal check for you and baby with our experienced private midwife during the first 28 days of baby’s birth. This consultation will give you an opportunity to discuss and reflect on your birth experience. Our private midwife will answer any questions or concerns you have, providing you with a physical check. If our private midwife feels it is needed, she may recommend a follow up gynaecology ultrasound scan.

Our midwife will offer to weigh and examine your Baby and check for any signs of jaundice;  whilst any feeding concerns can be discussed whether you have chosen to breastfeed or formula feed your baby.

If you are breastfeeding we can discuss attachment; feeding patterns, expressing and storing breast milk and how to treat any soreness or any problems you may be encountering. We can also check for tongue tie and help to organise a referral for this if appropriate.
