The Critical Role of Postnatal Checks in Mother and Baby Wellbeing

 Belgravia | Dulwich

After the joy and challenges of childbirth, postnatal checks are essential for ensuring the health and wellbeing of both mother and baby. Located in the heart of London with clinics in Belgravia and Dulwich, Grosvenor Gardens Healthcare is dedicated to providing comprehensive postnatal care.

Understanding Postnatal Checks

Postnatal checks are thorough assessments designed to monitor the recovery of the mother and the health of the newborn. These checks typically occur within the first six weeks after birth, a crucial period for both mother and child. They help in identifying any health issues that may arise post-delivery, ensuring that both are adjusting well physically and emotionally.

Benefits of Postnatal Checks

  1. Mother’s Health: These visits assess the mother’s recovery, check for postpartum depression, and discuss contraception options. They also address issues like pain, breastfeeding challenges, or hormonal changes and pelvic floor assessment.
  2. Baby’s Development: Postnatal checks ensure the baby is gaining weight, developing as expected, and receiving necessary immunisations. It’s also a chance to discuss feeding and sleeping patterns.
  3. Early Detection and Intervention: Regular postnatal visits can lead to the early detection of health issues, crucial for prompt treatment and support.
