Understanding Postpartum Care

Postpartum care is essential for new mothers, providing comprehensive support and medical attention immediately after childbirth to address physical recovery, emotional well-being, and the demands of motherhood. This care involves monitoring physical changes such as uterine contraction, vaginal bleeding, and healing of perineal wounds, alongside offering lactation support, newborn care education, and mental health resources. Typically lasting about six weeks, postpartum care ensures the health and well-being of both mother and baby, though this period can vary depending on factors like delivery type, the mother's health, and any complications. Our services are tailored to meet these diverse needs, ensuring a smooth transition into parenthood.

Understanding the '5-5-5' of Post-Birth Recovery

This concept breaks down the critical recovery phases after childbirth into three key periods: the first 5 hours, 5 days, and 5 weeks.

The first 5 hours are crucial for immediate postpartum care, monitoring vital signs, and ensuring the initial stability of both mother and baby. The next 5 days focus on managing physical recovery, addressing pain, and beginning lactation support. The following 5 weeks are dedicated to ongoing health monitoring, emotional support, and adjusting to the new routines of motherhood.

Our comprehensive postnatal care services encompass a wide range of support designed to ensure the well-being of both mother and baby throughout these critical periods. These services typically include lactation consultations, mental health support, and guidance on newborn care practices. We provide tailored physical recovery programs, including pelvic floor therapy and postpartum exercise plans, to help new mothers regain their strength and health.
