Postpartam care​

New mothers often need just as much care as their newborns do.

 

Post Partam Care is extended care for new mothers immediately following the birth. In years past, new mothers would stay in hospital for 10 or more days after child birth, now they are out the next day. Post Partam Care provides support for both mother and child and helps make the transition to childcare easier for both parents.

 

Pregnancy and child-birth are very taxing on mothers and specialised support can be vital in ensuring a healthy, happy family. Midwife Catherine offers advanced Post Partum Care to help relieve the stress on new mothers, provide insight and advice on childcare, and offer guidance.

  • Relieve stress after birth
  • Continue care for mother and child
  • Provide health care insight and education
  • Better breastfeeding outcomes
  • Improve connection between mother and child
  • Improve child sleep patterns
  • Better prevention and support for postnatal
  • depression

Extended care for new mothers​

Midwife Care is typically only offered during a pregnancy, however extended care for new mothers can be a big help in settling into life as a new mother and help lower the stress and anxiety associated with raising your first child.

 

Midwife care often leads to a higher chance of natural delivery without caesarian. This means a shorter stay in hospital post delivery, and allows for extended at-home care to be performed by the midwife.

 

As a registered nurse and midwife specialist with over 35 years experience in the field, Midwife Catherine offers specialised at-home midwifery care for new mothers. Catherine uses an evidence-based approach to midwife care, allowing you to make informed choices for your child with up-to-date information.

  • Greater birth satisfaction for you and your partner
  • Safer birth outcomes for your baby
  • Better breastfeeding outcomes
  • More chance of a natural delivery with less need for epidurals, inductions and caesarean sections
  • More successful vaginal births after a caesarean section
  • Shorter stay in hospital post delivery
  • Better prevention and support for postnatal depression

Breast care

Feeding your child incorrectly can cause issues with mothers breasts, including soreness, itching and nipple trauma. I can help correct the issues and minimise these problems and care for your breasts while breastfeeding.

 

With your baby correctly positioned and attached to the breast you should not have sore nipples. Sore and/or cracked nipples are NOT normal. Seek help as soon as you experience soreness.
