Postpartum

Now that your baby is here, it’s time for you to recover from the delivery and bond with your newborn. We’ll make sure you’re healthy and have the information you need to care for your baby before you leave the hospital. We’ll also support you as you learn to breastfeed and adjust to a different family life at home. And while it may seem like you don’t have time for anything but your new addition, don’t neglect yourself. We’ll make sure you’re aware of the signs and symptoms of postpartum depression, so you can seek additional help, if needed.
