Yet these early days can be a huge shock to most couples as they grapple with lack of sleep, anxiety, uncertainty and often conflicting advice. Reliable, consistent midwifery care can make a huge difference and help you to enjoy these early days.
Visits are suggested on a daily basis for the first five days and then at intervals for two weeks or six weeks. Each visit is unhurried, allowing you time to discuss worries or concerns.
