Postnatal Care

Checking your baby’s feeding, weight gain and a general physical wellbeing will continue after your leave the hospital. Advice, ongoing support and follow-up will be available as you need it for feeding and caring for your baby. This may initially be provided in the hospital or you may be supported by a member of the Public Health team. They can also direct you to other community support organizations.

Please note, if you are located in the HRM, the IWK offers postnatal services.
