The purpose of Post- natal care is to make the transition as smoothly as possible for the new mom.  Continuity in care is the ear mark of this service. This enables new moms to obtain help from people that they have already established a relationship with during the ante-natal period.  Guidance is provided, but boundaries are not over stepped, this will remain your process!  Babies are indeed individuals, not two are exactly the same and no book will be a perfect match!

Moms have the option to visit the rooms to weigh the baby, ask questions or book an extended appointment. Immunizations are also available. Help with latching is only a small part of what is included in the breastfeeding consultations.
