Postnatal care

After the birth of your baby, your GP or Gynaecologist will carry out your 6 week postnatal check, and give you breastfeeding advice and further support as your body adapts to life after birth.

Your Doctor is here if you have any concerns about postnatal bleeding, uterus health, pelvic floor control, postnatal incontinence or breast pain. You will receive advice about your weight and we are here to help if you are feeling blue, having difficulties bonding with your baby or are concerned about postnatal depression. Physiotherapy will also be useful if you have reduced pelvic floor control or you are experiencing urinary leakage (urinary stress incontinence). For your baby our Paediatricians, Dr Anne Buk-Serero and Dr Sophie Flammarion, offer developmental assessments, health checks and immunisations.
