What is postpartum care?
Postpartum care is health care for a newborn baby and maternal care for the mother, whether this is her firstborn or fourth child. Adjusting to a new addition to the family is a joyful but stressful time for a mother, even if it’s not her firstborn. Fatigue, postpartum depression, back aches, headaches and breastfeeding problems immediately following childbirth can indirectly affect the child’s health if the mother neglects her own health.
What can you expect to receive from postpartum care?
Skilled home health aides, certified nurse aides, and postpartum companions assist with child care (if your newborn has siblings), meal preparation, nutrition advice, bathing, exercise and non-medical surveillance of postpartum infections. There are so many changes to a woman’s body after birth that the postnatal experience can be overwhelming, agitating the symptoms of postpartum anxiety and depression. Having an experienced nurse aide, especially who is a mother herself, will provide you a peace of mind that both you and your baby are taken care of.
