Postnatal care at home
Supporting you and your baby at home
Our postnatal services
Heading home from hospital with your newborn is a special occasion but being at home with a new baby can take some adjustment.
We know that babies change quickly, breastfeeding isn’t always straightforward, and your body goes through lots of changes after giving birth.
When you want answers, guidance or even just clarification and reassurance, our home visiting midwives and lactation consultants are there for you and your family in those early days, weeks and months after giving birth.
St John of God Healthcare at Home midwives and lactation consultants provide tailored postnatal and breastfeeding support for you and your baby in the comfort of your own home.
Our postnatal services include:
- Advice on general baby health and wellbeing.
- Advice on your health and wellbeing.
- Support with breastfeeding and lactation.
As an accredited home visiting maternity service, we work closely with your obstetrician, paediatrician, child health nurse and GP to ensure your baby has the best possible start to life.
We can support you with:
- Visits at your home.
- Clinic consultations.
- Telehealth consultations over the phone or video appointments.
