Jane Palmer offers postnatal care to mothers and babies, either in the comfort of their homes or at the clinic. This service is ideal for women who leave the hospital within a few days of their baby’s birth, or for women who are experiencing difficulties. Receiving one-to-one support from an experienced midwife offers a variety of benefits. These include the opportunity to develop a trusting and supportive relationship, consistency of advice and picking up any postnatal issues.

During a postnatal visit, the health and well-being of both mother and baby are checked. You can book a one-off postnatal visit or a package of care.

Provided for up to six weeks, the postnatal care package incorporates approximately six postnatal visits, including a comprehensive six-week postnatal check. At each visit, your midwife will conduct a mother and well-baby check as well as discuss with you any issues or problems you or your baby may be experiencing. In addition, your midwife will provide information on infant feeding, postnatal exercises, parenting and family adjustments, family planning and community resources.
