Visit 8: Intro to Postpartum
Going home from the hospital with your baby is both exciting and challenging. Learn all you can while you're at the hospital. You will be given an education sheet to fill out letting your nurse know what you are comfortable with and what you feel you need to know. Your nurses will teach you and your partner the skills you need to feel comfortable caring for your baby and yourself.
After your discharge we are available for a home visit or by phone with a nurse experienced in newborn care. Our lactation nurses will call you to see how you are doing once you are home. You can also call the lactation line and speak to a lactation nurse if you have any questions or concerns about your baby's feedings. You may even bring your baby in for a lactation visit if there are any concerns.
