As promised here is a picture of Dy and I with Lil' Miss Avangeline at her one day postpartum visit.
Postpartum care is very important to me as a midwife. I typically see my clients at 1 day, 3 days, 1 week, 3 weeks and 6 weeks postpartum. Sometimes more, if needed. The 1 day and 3 days are always back in their home. Depending on how mom is feeling, the 1 week can be as well.
During postpartum visits, we check both mom and baby's vitals, make sure breastfeeding is going well, that mom is feeling good emotionally and best of all, get to snuggle with the new little one.
I just love the time I am able to spend with the new moms and babies.
