Postnatal

Services

As well as being a time of intense excitement and happiness, the first few weeks at home with your new baby can also be confusing, exhausting and full of self-doubt… conflicting advice can make you feel certain that what you are doing is right! 

At Western Obstetrics we are here to help you and your new family adjust to the demands of this new life.

We believe that when you receive care early, along with consistent advice, common difficulties during the postnatal period can be prevented.

We provide several postnatal services that will be invaluable to you in the first few weeks of your baby’s life and your journey into parenthood.

POSTNATAL CHECKINS

Our Midwives and GPOs can provide support with any adjustment that you may be having to your new role as a parent – Early Intervention. The appointments highlighted below will cover ongoing post-natal checks, including perineal and wound care, baby immunisations, weight and development assessments, family planning and contraceptive advice and provide referrals where necessary to other high-quality health professionals.
