MIDWIVES POSTNATAL DROP-IN SERVICE

As part of our comprehensive obstetric care package (no extra fee), our qualified midwives run a postnatal drop-in service.
You may have questions or concerns following the birth of your baby that our midwives can discuss and give guidance prior to your 6-week postnatal visit with Dr Greening.

OUR SERVICE INCLUDES….

  • Parenting support
  • Feeding support – basic breastfeeding and artificial feeding
  • Newborn behaviours – sleep/hunger/tired cues
  • Settling support for yourself and /or baby
  • Feelings of anxiety or even depression
  • Physical and emotional well-being – basic support
  • Guidance with trusted internet sites and education brochures
  • Exercise and wellness for your body
  • First weeks homes – is this what to expect with my body
  • Referrals to community support services and what services are available

When you phone our rooms, our staff will triage whether it would be suitable for you to see the midwives or whether your concerns are of a nature where you will need to see Dr Greening earlier than your scheduled 6-week appointment.
