Postnatal Care Q & A

What is postnatal care?

The postnatal period starts once you give birth. High Risk Pregnancy Doctors provides all-encompassing care, which includes complete prenatal care and postnatal care for six weeks, a vital time in the life of both you and your newborn.

The postnatal period is the time when you and your baby can flourish, ensuring the long-term health and well-being for you both. It’s also a unique experience for every woman, so High Risk Pregnancy Doctors prepares a personalized care plan for you that aims to optimize your health.

What factors affect my postnatal care plan?

Your doctor tailors your postnatal care plan to your specific needs based on your health and any underlying problems you have, the health of your baby, and the experience of labor and birth.

For example, while vaginal delivery is the preferred birthing option for most women, for some, it isn’t possible, which means having a cesarean section instead. This is major surgery and requires a different approach to postnatal healing than vaginal delivery.

On the other hand, a vaginal birth might involve interventions like using forceps, or you might experience some perineal tearing that requires stitching and close observation to make sure you are healing well. 

Feeling exhausted after giving birth is normal even when the birth goes smoothly. If you had a difficult labor, you might find you feel extreme fatigue just when you’re taking on the role of mother to a new baby. Postpartum depression is also a frequent problem that can affect you at any stage after birth.

These and many other factors mean it’s essential for every woman and their baby to have their own personalized postnatal care, which High Risk Pregnancy Doctors provide.

What might my postnatal care plan include?

Your postnatal care plan includes regular assessments of your physical and psychological well-being. That could range from checking your stitches and wound healing, where appropriate, to find out how you’re coping with the postnatal experience.

Your care plan aims to support you with all aspects of your postnatal health, including:

  • Mood and emotional well-being
  • Infant care and feeding
  • Sexuality
  • Contraception
  • Birth spacing
  • Sleep and fatigue
  • Physical recovery from birth
  • Chronic disease management 
  • Weight management

During your postnatal care period at High Risk Pregnancy Doctors, you can benefit from the weight management and fitness “fit belly program” and take advantage of the spa services to help you relax and recuperate. Your plan also ensures the smooth transition back to primary care after six weeks.
