Postnatal Care

Following the birth of your baby, regardless of method of delivery, we will do a Postnatal follow up with you and your new family. Postnatal care is offered at the clinic, you may contact us to make an appointment.

 

During these visits we will attend to the needs of the mother, baby and surrounding family. These consultations are individualised and suited to the needs of the new family.
