Tandem Midwifery - Holistic Families

Postpartum Care

Following the birth of baby, we continue caring for you and your baby till six weeks postpartum. We return to your home at 36 hours and days 4-5 and you return to our office at 2 weeks and 6 week checkups. We assess your health and do a complete physical exam on baby, as well as monitor weight gain, jaundice check, perform metabolic screens of the newborn and assist you with breastfeeding, helping you transition into parenthood. We also refer to other healthcare practitioners as needed.
