Postpartum care

After the wonderful experience of birth all the attention turns to the child. However mothers must also look after their health – especially in the weeks after the birth. Our 6-Week-Check examines the body to ensure it has fully recovered from the pregnancy and birth. Just like the name suggests, our 6-Week-Check takes places approximately six weeks after the birth. This includes the examination of the breasts and genital tract and provides care and advice in the following areas:

  • Infections of the breast, problems with breastfeeding
  • Back formation of the uterus
  • Healing of tears and operation wounds
  • General health condition
  • Support after traumatising deliveries
  • Discussion and advise for contraception
