Postnatal & Newborn Care

At Honest HHC, Postnatal and newborn care services are essential for ensuring the health and well-being of both the mother and the newborn baby. These services typically encompass a range of medical and support interventions provided immediately after birth and during the first few weeks of the baby’s life. Here’s an overview of what they include:

Postnatal Care for the Mother

  • Physical Recovery: Monitoring the mother’s recovery from childbirth, including the healing of any tears, incisions (such as from a cesarean section), and overall physical health.
  • Breastfeeding Support: Assistance with breastfeeding techniques, addressing issues such as latching problems, nipple pain, and milk supply.
  • Mental Health Support: Screening for postpartum depression and anxiety, providing counseling or referrals as needed.
  • Contraceptive Advice: Information on family planning and birth control options.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Scheduled visits to monitor the mother’s recovery and address any ongoing health issues.

Newborn Care

  • Initial Assessment: Apgar scoring immediately after birth to assess the baby’s health, followed by a thorough physical examination.
  • Feeding Support: Guidance on breastfeeding or formula feeding, ensuring the baby is feeding well and gaining weight appropriately.
  • Screenings and Vaccinations: Routine newborn screenings (e.g., for metabolic or genetic disorders) and administration of necessary vaccines.
  • Monitoring Growth and Development: Regular check-ups to track the baby’s growth, motor skills, and overall development.
  • Umbilical Cord Care: Instructions on how to care for the umbilical cord stump until it falls off.
  • Sleeping and Safety Advice: Guidance on safe sleeping practices, such as placing the baby on their back to sleep, and general safety tips for the home environment.
