Checks during the maternity week
During your maternity week, the first week after the birth of your baby, we will visit you at home.
We’ll see how you and your baby are doing. We discuss the delivery, how you feel physically and emotionally and the checks that the maternity nurse has done. The maternity nurse is present with you throughout the week for support and can offer help with the care of yourself and your baby. She can support you with feeding your baby.
Are you breastfeeding and would you like extra help? Carolien and Burny are lactation consultants and are happy to assist you in this.
After about a week we visit you for the last time at home. After this, the care is transferred to the general practitioner and the consultatiebureau (JGZ).
They will contact you for the first appointment.
About 6 weeks after your delivery, you will visit us again for a follow-up/check-up.
