During the follow-up, we will discuss how you have experienced the care in recent months. How do you look back on pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum? And how are you doing as a new family? How did the physical and mental recovery go? If you have any questions yourself, there is of course also room for that.
Other topics we can discuss are your menstrual cycle, contraception, training the pelvic floor muscles, sports, (breast) nutrition and advice for a possible next pregnancy and delivery.
There is also an opportunity to measure your blood pressure one more time or to determine the iron level. If you have had stitches after the delivery, we can look at the recovery of the wound during the follow-up check if desired.
A check of the abdominal muscles is also possible. During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles are pushed aside to make more room for the growth of the uterus. After childbirth, these muscles slowly come together again. Sometimes the abdominal muscles continue to give way, which we call diastasis. We can check if you have a diastasis. If not, you can also start training the abs again.
