After the delivery, the care for you and your baby does not stop immediately. We will come to your home every other day until a week after your delivery. If you give birth in the hospital under the direction of the gynecologist, we will come to see your home the day after you have gone home.
We have expanded with you about how you experienced the birth. We check whether the uterus is lowering properly and whether your stitches are healing properly. We also discuss how your baby is doing. What about peeing, pooping, the color of your baby, the temperature and how is it drinking? We also give you tips and advice for a smooth recovery!
Collaboration with the maternity nurse
We werken in je kraamperiode heel nauw samen met de kraamverzorgende. De kraamverzorgende doet algemene controles bij jou en je kindje, om te kijken of alles normaal verloopt. Bij bijzonderheden zal ze laagdrempelig met ons overleggen. Wij bekijken dan, samen met jou en de kraamverzorgende, wat opties zijn en wat het best bij je past, om alles goed te laten verlopen. Maatwerk dus op wat jij nodig hebt!
We close the maternity period after a week. If you wish, you will come to us for a follow-up check-up around 6 weeks after your delivery. Even if you don't see us after the maternity period, you can always call us with questions about yourself or your child. After the maternity week, your doctor and the consultation office will be your points of contact.
After about 6 weeks you will come to us for a follow-up check. This is the true completion of our care for you. We will discuss how you are doing and how you experienced the pregnancy, delivery and maternity period. If you like, we can check whether the wound has healed properly, whether your abs are already together again, measure your blood pressure and talk to you about contraception. If you would like to have an IUD placed, you can also do this through us. We do this from 12 weeks after delivery.
